I am an agent, in SW OK. I'd worry about my higherups seeing this and doing something to jeopardize my agency. However, now I have no problem with saying that USCC is in big trouble. If I didn't know better (sarcasm), I'd say they were gearing up for a sale. Or total shut down.
In OK, most if not all of the single store agents are being shut down. I should say not having their contract renewed, since that's how they explained it to me. Many of the larger agencies are cutting back on the numbers of their stores, and I expect that USCC will be agentless very soon.
I'm hoping that when Dish buys Sprint, that that conglomerate will pick up the towers in our area, but until I see some more on that mess, we are stuck with no way to offer wireless to our county. Our rural area will be gutted by this.
