US Cellular has announced plans to start offering 5G technology for its customers in Iowa and Wisconsin in the first quarter of 2020. The company said in a release that this initial 5G deployment, which will rely on its 600 MHz spectrum, represents the first phase of the a planned multi-year network expansion for 5G and is a result of previous network technology investments to modernize equipment and software. “Iowa and Wisconsin are two of our largest markets and we’re excited to introduce 5G technology to customers in both urban and rural communities where other carriers have not,” said Michael Irizarry, executive vice president and chief technology officer of US Cellular. “Broader 5G coverage will provide our customers with even faster data connection speeds for a better experience when they do the things they love on their devices.”
