U.S. Cellular today said that it plans to launch Long Term Evolution 4G service to about 25% of its service footprint by the holiday season of 2011. The network will initially cover Milwaukee, Madison and Racine, Wisc.; Des Moines, Cedar Rapids, and Davenport, Iowa; Portland and Bangor, Maine; and Greenville, N.C. U.S. Cellular said that it will launch an LTE-capable phone the same time it launches the network, though it declined to provide details about that device. U.S. Cellular did indicate that the device will be able to access significantly faster data speeds than U.S. Cellular is currently capable of delivering to its 3G devices. The company will continue to deploy LTE to its remaining markets into 2012.
