US Cellular is a postpaid and prepaid service provider that runs off CDMA technology. This technology is similar to the likes of Verizon and Sprint, however, US Cellular is not compatible with either. US Cellular has an array of cell phone service plans ranging from voice only plans up to larger high speed data plans. US cellular offers contract plans, no contract plans and even prepaid plans. This makes their service very user friendly and open to many different price ranges.
US Cellular offers 3G Coverage and 4G LTE coverage mainly in the Pacific Northwest, Midwest, and some areas in New England. All devices with US Cellular require a connection charge in addition to the plan cost. These connection charges vary from things like installment pricing connection charge, basic phone connection charge, router w/ voice charge, hotspot connection charge and even vehicle monitoring connection charge. This means customers will have to pay a connection charge on almost any plan type with US Cellular.
US Cellular offers high speed internet plans without a phone and are great ways to stay connected on the go. Even plans like individual line plans, home phone unlimited talk plans, and business plans can purchase additional data packages. US Cellular will not charge any overages since the carrier slows speeds for customer that have used their fixed monthly data amount. If you aren’t sure how much data you need, US Cellular provides an estimated data calculator that can help you choose which plan best fits your wireless needs.
Most unlocked devices from Verizon, AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile are compatible with the 3G and 4G LTE frequency bands supported by US Cellular.
