U.S. Cellular updated its voice, messaging, and data plans this week. Moving forward, the company is offering 450 voice minutes and unlimited messaging for $50 per month, 1,000 minutes and unlimited messaging for $70 per month, and unlimited minutes and messaging for $90 per month. Data plans now cost $20 per month for 300MB and $25 per month for 2GB. Tethering options include 4GB for $45 per month, 5GB for $50, and 10GB for $90. Data plans are in addition to voice/text plans. New overage rates are also in effect. Users who exceed their monthly allotment will be charged $10 for the next tier of data rather than by the megabyte. The company noted that its LTE network has launched in Iowa, Maine, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Texas and Wisconsin. The company will cover 50% of its service footprint with LTE by the end of the year.

Since you charge like VZW, why not just have them acquire USC?

Good options & prices for us U.S. Cellular? With these prices & data tiers, I wonder why people wouldn't just go to Verizon or AT&T? Hopefully Verizon just gobbles them up because they are useless now to most consumers as a "value option". Heaven-forbid Sprint & T-Mobile ever fold or are acquired by Big Blue/Red, WE ARE SCREWED!!!
How are they still not a great value based carrier? They offer 1 time contracts, a rewards system, overage protection, overage cap, free battery swaps.

Yes they are positioning themselves plan-wise like the other carriers, but they are still vastly...
