(Press Release) Cellcom’s 4G LTE coverage expanded to western Marathon County with sites in Abbotsford, Athens, Brokaw, Marathon City, Stettin and Wien turning up Monday.
“As a company, we are committed to ensuring that our customers in the small cities and rural towns throughout Wisconsin and Upper Michigan have access to the same technology that is found in major metropolitan areas throughout the country,” said Riordan. “Our work to bring 4G LTE technology to our customers demonstrates this commitment.”
4G LTE technology improves data speeds, which is a major advantage in data-intensive activities such as streaming video and music, online gaming, and the rapidly growing number of activities with cloud-based applications. Customers can expect a snappier data and internet experience, with download speeds averaging 5-12 mbps and upload speeds of 2-5 mbps -- or about 10 times faster than 3G.
Cellcom’s 4G LTE network includes cell sites in Green Bay, Door County, Appleton, Oshkosh, Wausau, Manitowoc and parts of Oconto, Shawano and Marinette Counties. Cellcom customers also have access to 4G LTE in over 370 cities across the United States, including Sheboygan, Madison, Milwaukee, Chicago and Minneapolis. Additional cell sites in Northeast and Central Wisconsin will light up throughout 2012 as the company continues its 4G rollout.
