U.S. Cellular: Additional Wisconsin cities in line to experience U.S. Cellular 4G LTE service

Features up to 10 times faster download speeds and better web browsing experience

MILWAUKEE (Feb. 29, 2012) – U.S. Cellular (NYSE: USM), in conjunction with its partner, King Street Wireless, announced that additional Wisconsin cities will be among the next to experience high-speed 4G LTE service. Upon the addition of 4G LTE service in the second half of 2012, customers will enjoy an enhanced wireless experience with countless entertainment possibilities and ways to help simplify and organize their lives.

With the 4G LTE network, customers will enjoy browsing the web at speeds that are up to 10 times faster than 3G, and similar to a cable Internet connection. High-speed 4G LTE allows customers to begin watching a movie in seconds, enjoy smoother video streaming with little to no buffering and experience seamless video chatting with family or business colleagues.

Additional markets slated to receive 4G LTE include select cities in Illinois, Iowa, Maryland, Missouri, New Hampshire, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Oregon, Tennessee, Vermont, Virginia, Washington, West Virginia and Wisconsin.  By the end of 2012, 54 percent of customers will be able to enjoy 4G LTE speeds.

“With 4G LTE speeds, you can quickly get what you want when you need it,” said Laurie Poellinger, director of sales for U.S. Cellular in Wisconsin. “We’re committed to delivering products and services that simplify and enhance our customers’ daily lives, and that’s why we’re excited to bring 4G LTE to Wisconsin’s customers.”

To receive all the benefits of 4G LTE service in their area, 4G LTE devices will be available to customers in all U.S. Cellular stores beginning with the Samsung Galaxy Tab™ 10.1 in March. The Samsung Galaxy S® Aviator smartphone will follow in the spring along with The Samsung 4G LTE Mobile Hotspot.  This Hotspot will provide Internet connectivity for up to five Wi-Fi enabled devices simultaneously. At only 2.7 ounces, the Hotspot is small enough to fit in your pocket but has the power to bring the Internet at 4G LTE speeds to friends, family and co-workers.  Additional devices will be available throughout the year.

The 4G LTE network builds on the 3G data services that U.S. Cellular customers already enjoy on the carrier’s nationwide network. U.S. Cellular has the highest call quality and network satisfaction of any national carrier, along with the only points-based rewards program in wireless.
