Smaller wireless providers have to do what it takes to to stay competitive in a market with many options. For some, this has meant mergers. Others have opted to cut service pricing to lure in a few extra subscribers. US Cellular is doing their best to stay relevant by introducing a new unlimited 4G LTE data option.
The plan starts at $40 with an option to add data tethering for $20 more per month, a limited-time offer for customers residing in any of US Cellular’s 4G markets. The carrier aims to have 58 percent of its subscriber base covered with LTE by the end of the year.
In order to take advantage of the new 4G data pricing, US cellular is offering a selection of handsets with a $100 instant rebate, including the Samsung Galaxy S3. They are also offering a free Samsung LTE hotspot along with the purchase of any smartphone or tablet.
