U.S. Cellular is the sixth-largest mobile broadband provider in the U.S. On top of its prepaid and postpaid mobile plans, it also offers home internet service. It has the most coverage in Milwaukee, Oklahoma City, and Omaha. While U.S. Cellular doesn’t have the strongest or most expansive network compared to Verizon, AT&T, and T-Mobile, it’s a great alternative for family pricing and mobile hotspots.
U.S. Cellular Plans and Pricing
|Best Features||Things to Consider|
U.S. Cellular has many plan options like unlimited, prepaid, and home internet. As you’re browsing, you’ll notice that its pricing is transparent and one-line prices aren’t as cheap as other mobile broadband providers. With unlimited plans, you start off with a basic plan for $29 per month, and if you want to add more features, you can either upgrade to the Everyday or Even Better plan for an extra $10-$15 per month.
|Unlimited Plan Name||Starting Price (per line)||Data Cap|
|Basic||$29 per month||Unlimited data|
|Everyday||Basic Plan Price +$10 per month||Unlimited data|
|Even Better||Basic Plan Price +$15 per month||Unlimited data|
With prepaid plans, you can either choose one that has a data cap or ones with unlimited data. For the most perks, the Unlimited Plus includes one free Redbox movie rental every month. All prepaid plans include a three-day grace period for late payments.
|Prepaid Plan Name||Starting Price (per line)||Data Cap|
|15 GB||$40 per month||15 GB|
|Unlimited||$55 per month||Unlimited data|
|Unlimited Plus||$65 per month||Unlimited data|
Compared to other providers that offer mobile broadband service, such as Cricket Wireless and Metro by T-Mobile, U.S. Cellular doesn’t have the backing of one of the three big networks. Its major strength is that it has the most coverage in the rural Midwest. Because U.S. Cellular recently rolled out its 5G home internet service, availability is very limited.

U.S. Cellular Internet Speeds
U.S. Cellular doesn’t offer the fastest speeds for its services, as it trails behind the big three networks: Verizon, AT&T, and T-Mobile. Speeds vary by location, but generally, higher-tiered prices will offer a data priority feature if you don’t want to experience reduced speeds during network congestion.
