A business that has cellular towers in Texas County is expanding to include it in its 5G network.
UScellular said new 5G equipment is in Summersville, Cabool, Bucyrus, Houston, Elk Creek, Eunice, Huggins, Licking, Raymondville, Roby, Solo, Success and Yukon.
Other towns with access to UScellular’s 5G network include Mountain Grove, Mountain View and West Plains. Additional 5G coverage will continue to be added to enhance the network experience for UScellular customers in Missouri as part of a multi-year network expansion plan, officials said.
“UScellular customers in Missouri will have access to even faster data connection speeds for a better experience on city streets, country roads and in their homes,” said Joe Cabrera, director of retail sales and operations for UScellular in Missouri and Kansas. “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 Missouri is a result of previous network investments to modernize equipment and software. In 2020, UScellular invested $22.8 million in 5G upgrades to enhance the network experience for Missouri residents.
This initial 5G network deployment is on the company’s 600 MHz spectrum and will provide customers in Missouri communities with faster data speeds, seamless video chatting and a more responsive mobile experience.
