U.S. CELLULAR BUILDS NEW CELL SITE ON CHASE MOUNTAIN

Klamath Falls, Ore., Jan. 4, 2012 – U.S. Cellular (NYSE: USM) continues to invest in its high-speed nationwide network with a new cell site on Chase Mountain to help residents and businesses stay connected to the information and people who matter most to them. The new site will increase U.S. Cellular's coverage along Highway 66 between Keno and Ashland and is one of more than 250 towers U.S. Cellular has built across the state.

This network enhancement is part of U.S. Cellular's commitment to providing an ideal experience anytime its customers use their phones. U.S. Cellular has the highest call quality and network satisfaction of any national carrier, and it offers unique benefits, including new phones faster without continuously signing contracts. "Creating the best network in Oregon to ensure that our customers stay connected is a top priority. We take pride in knowing our customers can rely on our network and enjoy the many features their cell phone has to offer no matter where they are," said Roberta Winger director of sales for U.S. Cellular in Oregon and California. "Switch to U.S. Cellular and join the happiest customers in wireless."

With U.S. Cellular's high-speed nationwide network, websites open faster and e-mails download more quickly on the company's smartphone and mobile tablet line-up, including the Android-powered Motorola ELECTRIFY, HTC 7 Pro Windows® Phone and BlackBerry® Torch 9850.

To select locations for new towers, U.S. Cellular has teams of system performance engineers who drive through the company's network coverage area, sometimes hundreds of miles a day, to test the signal strength and call quality. U.S. Cellular also listens to customer feedback to help identify the communities that would benefit from another tower.
