UScellular turns on 5G network for Susanville customers

UScellular customers in Lassen County are now able to access the company’s 5G network, according to a statement from the company. This initial deployment covers Susanville.

Other towns with access to 5G in California include Crescent City, Mckinleyville, Piercy Ukiah, and Whitehorn. Additional 5G coverage will be added to enhance the network experience for UScellular customers in California in the future as part of the company’s multi-year expansion for 5G.

“UScellular customers in Susanville will have access to even faster data connection speeds for a better experience on city streets, country roads and in their homes,” said Erryn Andersen, director of sales for UScellular in the Northwest. “We encourage our new and current customers to check out the growing number of 5G smartphones and connected devices in our portfolio so they can benefit as we expand our 5G network.”

The multi-year network expansion for 5G in California is a result of previous network investments to modernize equipment and software. In 2019, UScellular invested $3.9 million in 5G upgrades to enhance the network experience for California residents.

The company has a growing portfolio of 5G smartphones from Apple, LG and Samsung, connected devices and IoT solutions with a range of price points for everyone to experience 5G.

This initial 5G network deployment is on the company’s 600 MHz spectrum and will provide customers in California communities with faster data speeds, seamless video chatting and a more responsive mobile experience.
