Here it Comes
- What is changing?
Enabling 4G LTE Roaming positions us to increase 4G LTE data coverage area for our subscribers. This will allow our prepaid and postpaid subscribers to continue to enjoy the 4G LTE data experience while outside the U.S. Cellular 4G LTE network coverage area and allow additional subscribers to enjoy the same experience while roaming on our 4G LTE network.
- Why are we making this change?
We currently have agreements in place with other carriers to provide 3G data coverage to our customers while they are roaming. The increased 4G LTE data coverage area will enhance our subscribers’ experience plus we’ll reduce overall roaming costs as customers migrate from 3G to 4G off-net and increase roaming revenues as foreign roamers will also have access to our 4G LTE network.
- When is it changing?
The capability for 4G LTE Roaming will be in place at the time of Release 3.0. We are preparing the roaming agreements with other carriers that will begin later in 2014. Customers will begin having 4G LTE roaming capabilities in additional areas as we continue to execute agreements with other carriers.
Will off-network data allowance increase when we introduce 4G LTE Roaming?
We are not making any changes at this time, but will continue to monitor usage.
Which carriers will we be partnering with?
We are working with various carriers in order to provide the best data roaming service for our customers. Once agreements are executed, additional communications will be shared.
