U.S. Cellular, in conjunction with its partner King Street Wireless, has announced residents of Newton now have access to high-speed 4G LTE services.

4G LTE speeds are up to 10 times faster than 3G and similar to a cable Internet connection. This service allows for fast web browsing, smooth video streaming, video chatting and speedy app downloads on compatible devices, such as smartphones, tablets and wireless modems.

“We’re continuously improving our customer experience, so we’re excited to offer 4G LTE speeds to more customers in Iowa,” said Don Cochran, U.S. Cellular’s director of sales in Iowa. “4G LTE speeds, along with our growing lineup of 4G LTE devices, will make customers’ lives simpler and easier with quick access to important information and entertainment on their devices.”

Currently, 61 percent of U.S. Cellular customers have access to 4G LTE speeds. By the end of the year, the company expects nearly 90 percent to be covered. To learn more about U.S. Cellular’s 4G LTE service, visit http://uscellular.com/4G.
