Since last year’s 3G review, US Cellular has gone from being a regional provider to a nationwide 3G provider thanks to a roaming agreement with Verizon.
However, with a limited broadband card selection and late entry into 4G service being offered mostly in 2012, they pose more of a threat to smaller less known companies rather than AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile and Verizon.
As always, this review will be broken up into:
- US Cellular 3G Plans Review
- US Cellular 3G Speed Review
- US Cellular 3G Coverage Review
- US Cellular 3G Broadband Cards Review
US Cellular 3G plans now include a $60 nationwide option with half the overage charges of the $50 plan.
While US Cellular 3G speed hasn’t changed much, they do plan to launch 4G speed via LTE in 2011.
US Cellular 3G coverage is now nationwide thanks to a roaming partnership with Verizon. What about 4G though?
US Cellular 3G broadband cards have been reduced to one option. The PCD UM185. Incidentally, it’s the same card Cricket offers.
