USCC-National Carrier....Since when?

by yourvoiceofreason    Jul 27, 2011, 11:40 PM

Im not trying to pick on US Cellular, but I have recently seen ads that say "Get the highest call quality and network satisfaction of any national carrier".

My question is, since when did US Cellular become a national carrier? I, as well as the industry itself, have always considered it a regional carrier (sometimes I have heard "super-regional carrier"). I hope it isn't that someone decided to call USCC a national carrier in one survey, and USCC started running with this description of itself, saying it is a national carrier all of a sudden.

Maybe this should not bother me as much as it does. But I feel like US Cellular is always trying to be what it is not. It always tries to portray itself as one of the big carriers, when it is not. It is like the company needs a reality check...It is no way a national carrier, when in exception of 1 or 2 markets, in is not in any of the top major markets in the USA.
