UScellular continues to invest in its fast, high-quality network with a new 5G cell site in Halifax County.
The site enhances UScellular’s network in and around the Roanoke Rapids community and is one of more than 700 sites the wireless carrier has across the state.
The company said 5G service provides faster data speeds, seamless video chatting and a more responsive mobile experience.
UScellular invested $300,000 in this latest network advancement as part of the company’s ongoing North Carolina strategic network investments.
In 2021, the company invested $192.6 million in its North Carolina network.
This included $29 million in general network upgrades, $45.4 million in 5G modernizations and $118.2 million in 5G spectrum that will bring additional benefits in the coming years and advance the company’s multi-year 5G network strategy.
