UScellular turns on 5G network for Knoxville customers
East Tennessee joins other cities across nation with access to the new 5G network
UScellular customers across East Tennessee are now able to access the company’s 5G network. The initial deployment covers much of Knoxville, including downtown and densely populated areas in Farragut and North Knoxville.
Other areas of East Tennessee with access to 5G include portions of Blount, Sevier and Anderson counties. Access also has expanded regionally to include North Carolina, totaling more than 50 UScellular 5G sites throughout Tennessee and North Carolina.
“UScellular customers in East Tennessee will have access to even faster data connection speeds for a better experience on city streets, country roads and in their homes,” said Nathan Waddell, director of sales for UScellular in East Tennessee. “We encourage our new and current customers to check out the growing number of 5G smartphones and connected devices in our portfolio, so they can benefit as we expand our 5G network.”
The multi-year network expansion for 5G in East Tennessee is a result of previous network investments to modernize equipment and software. Additional 5G coverage will be added in the future to enhance the network experience for UScellular customers.
The company has a growing portfolio of 5G smartphones from Apple, LG and Samsung, connected devices and IoT solutions with a range of price points for everyone to experience 5G.
The initial 5G network deployment is on the company’s 600 MHz spectrum and will provide customers in Tennessee communities with faster data speeds, seamless video chatting and a more responsive mobile experience.
