    WISCONSIN RAPIDS, Wis. (June 10, 2021) – UScellular customers in Wisconsin Rapids now have additional access to the company’s 5G network. New 5G equipment in Wisconsin Rapids offers additional coverage to multiple communities across Wisconsin.
    Other towns with access to UScellular’s 5G network in Wisconsin include Appleton, Green Bay, Kenosha and more. Additional 5G coverage will be added to enhance the network experience for UScellular customers in Wisconsin.
    “UScellular customers in Wisconsin will have access to even faster data connection speeds for a better experience on Wisconsin Rapids streets, country roads and in their homes,” said Christine Paulsen, director of sales for UScellular in Wisconsin. “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.”
