U.S. CELLULAR BUILDS NEW CELL TOWER NEAR LAUREL
LAUREL, Iowa, June 8, 2011 – U.S. Cellular continues to invest in its high-speed nationwide network with a new 250-foot cell tower 3 miles southwest of Laurel 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 Iowa Highway 14 between Newton and Marshalltown. It is among more than 770 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 offers unique benefits, including new phones faster without continuously signing contracts.
"Creating the best network in Iowa 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 Don Cochran, director of sales for U.S. Cellular in Iowa. "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 emails download more quickly on the company's line of Android™-powered devices, BlackBerry® and Windows® smartphones, such as the Samsung Galaxy Tab™, LG Genesis™ and BlackBerry Bold™.
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.
