U.S. Cellular (NYSE: USM) continues to invest in its high-speed nationwide network with a new cell site in Kelso. The site enhances U.S. Cellular’s coverage east of Interstate 5 including Kelso High School and Coweeman Middle School, and in the neighborhoods along the four mile section of Allen St. east of Tam O’ Shanter Way.

“We want our customers to have a great experience every time they use their devices, and this new cell site will help customers stay connected to friends, family and the information they need,” said Joe Cabrera, director of sales for U.S. Cellular in Washington and Oregon.“At U.S. Cellular we know your phone simplifies and enhances your life, so we provide cutting-edge devices and a high-speed nationwide network that has the highest call quality and network satisfaction of any national carrier.”

With U.S. Cellular’s nationwide network customers can begin watching a movie in seconds and open websites and download emails quickly on the company’s smartphone lineup, which includes the Samsung Galaxy S® III™.

To select locations for new cell sites, U.S. Cellular has teams of system performance engineers who drive through the company’s network coverage area, sometimes hundreds of miles a day, to test the signal strength and call quality.“The customer experience is a top priority for U.S. Cellular and we listen to customer feedback to help identify the communities that would benefit from another cell site,” said Cabrera.
