According to foreign media, the four giants of the U.S. mobile network market have begun to launch their respective 5G networks in varying degrees. But U.S. Cellular is a bit behind, and the company plans to start launching the new technology this year. To achieve this goal, the company announced that it has chosen to use Samsung devices in 4G LTE and the upcoming 5g network.
This partnership will enable the operator to provide services to more customers. U. S. cellular CTO Mike irizarry said:
5g comes in many forms, from Verizon's current focus on mmwave networks - faster, but smaller - to the 600 MHz spectrum that T-Mobile is promoting. Just like T-Mobile, the U.S. cellular approach is also hybrid, starting at the low frequency of the 600MHz band and then building the mmwave network in a meaningful place.
The progress of 5g deployment is not only related to the direct users of U.S. cellular, considering that the company is also one of the backbone of Google's fi services, so the launch of the service will eventually provide 5g connections for these users.
