Move beyond limits with

We’re building U.S. Cellular® 5G with a combination of connectivity, speed and capacity that lets businesses and governments do more. Connect thousands of devices to unlock new insights. Collaborate like there are no screens. Accomplish more than you dreamed possible. We’ll show you how.


Respond with greater clarity

U.S. Cellular 5G will enable future technologies like augmented reality (AR) assisted visualization that helps you see through smoke and darkness. Our network will enable first responders to stay connected where other 5G may not — in rural locations, or through walls and rain. And behavioral analytics and other new advancements will help you predict actions more accurately.


Expand service capabilities

Answer questions instantly and deliver service more accurately — 5G’s faster download times and increased capacity will put product manuals, videos, blueprints and more at your fingertips. And it will enable augmented reality (AR) applications that let you see what you can’t see now — like wiring inside equipment and pipes under floors.


Educate from anywhere

5G will provide experiential learning opportunities that engage learners in new ways — where virtual reality (VR) turns an ordinary surface into a virtual, interactive adventure. More students will have faster access to internet-based educational content. And remote learning won’t feel remote when 5G allows interactive video conferencing with virtually no lag time.

Enable smarter cities

Cities will take on new functionality with 5G connectivity. Smart lighting saves energy by dimming when people and cars aren’t present; sensors indicate open parking spots; traffic data gets transmitted in real time for on-the-fly signal adjustment. And autonomous vehicles and maintenance drones could make life easier for all of us.

Improve patient care

U.S. Cellular 5G will enable telemedicine uninhibited by distance or lag time, so all patients can get quality care. Healthcare professionals can live-stream a post-surgery consult so patients don’t have to return to the hospital. And 5G can enable diagnoses aided by artificial intelligence, and training with augmented reality (AR) scenarios.

Rolling out in 2020

U.S. Cellular 5G is different.

All 5G provides speeds way faster than today’s 4G LTE™ as well as tremendous capacity. But not all 5G is the same. U.S. Cellular’s 5G uses a spectrum that isn’t blocked by walls or barriers the way other carriers’ 5G can be. It removes limitations and provides an uninterrupted experience from outdoors to indoors, so that wherever you do business — from city streets to country roads, and from the front office to the shop floor — the signal is there to keep your organization moving. And U.S. Cellular’s 5G comes with the support of local business experts who can help you bring the technology to life.

U.S. Cellular 5G — Built for business.

U.S. Cellular spent a lot of time listening to customers and studying the way organizations actually use their cellular service. We created a unique 5G to deliver what businesses and government organizations need to work smarter than ever before.

How is U.S. Cellular 5G different?

U.S. Cellular 5G will be supported by a new network, built to deliver without limitations, that can go through walls and barriers other 5G cannot.

How fast is 5G?

U.S. Cellular 5G is so much faster than today’s 4G, it virtually eliminates latency — to respond in what feels like real time.

What is network latency?

It’s that fraction-of-a-second delay you experience opening an app or starting a video with service slower than 5G.

How will lag time change?

U.S. Cellular 5G eliminates lag time during video collaboration — when connecting on screens, it feels like there’s no screen at all.

What about downloads and streaming?

With U.S. Cellular 5G, you’ll download an entire set of blueprints, a video, X-rays and more in a fraction of the time you’re used to, and with no buffering.

What else is new?

For starters, 5G augmented and virtual reality will be a lot like reality. Countless other innovations will come online as 5G evolves.

When and where will the rollout begin?

It’s happening now. Select markets in the Midwest will be first. Ultimately, the entire nation will be served. The network will be complete within three years.

How fast is 5G vs 4G?

U.S. Cellular 5G will be six times faster than the 4G you may be used to. And while the new network is being built, U.S. Cellular is enhancing all 4G LTE service.

Can I use U.S. Cellular 5G on my 4G phone and IoT devices?

5G will require equipment designed for 5G. As equipment manufacturers make products available, your local Business Solutions Expert will guide you on the best selections for your organization.

When will U.S. Cellular 5G be in my community?

That will be determined by where you live. We are constantly working to improve our network and expand coverage.
