Cell company adds new tower in Vinalhaven

Jan 16, 2020

Vinalhaven — U.S. Cellular continues to invest in its network with a new Voice over Long-Term Evolution (VoLTE) cell site in Vinalhaven. The site will enhance U.S. Cellular’s network downtown and the port area, and is one of more than 420 sites U.S. Cellular has across the state.

VoLTE also provides customers with features such as HD calling and simultaneous voice and data usage. Earlier in 2019, U.S. Cellular brought another tower on Vinalhaven, which brought coverage to most of the island, with the exception of downtown and the port area that this second tower covers.

“At U.S. Cellular we focus on providing a consistently exceptional customer experience and a fast, reliable national network to keep our customers connected to their friends and family,” said Matt Kasper, director of sales for U.S. Cellular in New England.

“Our engineers live and work in our communities and monitor the network around the clock to ensure that it keeps up with the needs of our customers.”

U.S. Cellular keeps customers connected with technology from Apple, Samsung, LG and other popular brands. This includes smartphones, tablets, smart home solutions, Internet of Things technology and High-Speed Internet for homes and businesses.

U.S. Cellular is the fifth-largest full-service wireless carrier in the United States, providing national network coverage and industry-leading innovations designed to elevate the customer experience.

The Chicago-based carrier is attempting to build a stronger network with the latest 5G technology and offer a range of communication services that enhance consumers’ lives, increase the competitiveness of local businesses and improve the efficiency of government operations.
