UScellular announced today that it made a $34.5 million investment in its Maine network in 2020, including $22.8 million in 5G upgrades that bring customers faster data speeds, a more responsive mobile experience and the ability to connect more devices to the network at the same time.

“We take the responsibility of keeping our customers connected very seriously, and every investment we make in our network is designed to enhance their wireless experience,” said Tabatha McKay, area vice president and general manager for UScellular in New England. “Last year showed us that wireless service has never been more essential, so we are dedicated to bringing the latest technology to more of our customers to ensure they can stay connected to the people and information they need.”

Additionally, as UScellular continues to build out its 5G device portfolio, it invested $520,000 in its Maine retail store environments in 2020 to create a better shopping experience and showcase the variety of smartphones, tablets, hotspots and wireless tech accessories available for customers. This includes seven redesigned or upgraded stores across the state throughout the year.

For the sixth year in a row, UScellular donated $1 million to Boys & Girls of America to support youth in its communities, $48,000 of which went directly to two clubs in Maine, Boys & Girls Clubs of Southern Maine and Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Waterville.
