Milwaukee, Oct. 6, 2009– U.S. Cellular is expanding its presence in the Milwaukee area to improve call quality for customers. A recently constructed cell site, located near 50th and Hampton, will increase U.S. Cellular's coverage in the McGovern Park area.

"Your cell phone is your lifeline to the people who are most important to you," said Chris Rathsack, director of sales for U.S. Cellular in Wisconsin. "We're here to keep you connected."

U.S. Cellular has a team of network engineers who drive all over the coverage area to test signal strength and call quality. The company also listens to customer feedback to determine the best locations for new cell sites.

The 9,000 associates of U.S. Cellular believe a wireless phone enhances people's lives and a wireless company should be in the business of bringing people together. Based in Chicago, U.S. Cellular is the nation's fifth-largest full-service wireless carrier, serving 6.2 million customers across the country.
