U.S. Cellular is Recognized as a J.D. Power 2014 Customer Champion

U.S. Cellular is one of only 50 companies to receive this honor in the U.S.

CHICAGO (March 3, 2014) – U.S. Cellular has been recognized as a 2014 Customer Champion—one of 50 companies to have earned this distinction this year. This is the third time in four years that U.S. Cellular has received this honor.

To qualify for inclusion on this elite list, companies must excel, not only within their own industry, but also among the nine industries included in the Customer Champions analysis by J.D. Power. To determine the J.D. Power 2014 Customer Champions, J.D. Power examined five factors, including: People, Presentation, Process, Product, and Price.

For the 2014 Customer Champions, J.D. Power evaluated more than 600 brands. The 2014 Champions were identified based on customer feedback, opinions, and perceptions gathered primarily from J.D. Power's syndicated research in 2013. This group of 50 represents the highest-performing U.S. companies that deliver service excellence—both within their respective industry and across nine industries measured.

"At U.S. Cellular, we strive to provide the best wireless experience for our customers every time they use their phone, visit their local store or call our Customer Care Centers," said Jay Ellison, executive vice president of sales and customer service for U.S. Cellular. "This is a special honor for us because it's based on feedback from our customers."
