U.S. Cellular today announced its intention to deploy CDMA 1XRTT (3G) technology in all of its markets. The company already deploys 2G CDMA in approximately 1/3 of its markets. The conversion from TDMA to CDMA in the remaining 2/3 of its markets will start in early 2002 and should be completed in 2004. The approximate cost of the conversion will range from $400-$450 million spread over the three year period.
