UScellularTM launches flexible solutions for remote workforces

UScellular recently introduced a new Remote Workforce Solution to help businesses be more flexible, productive, and secure. This solution delivers fast, reliable internet connections using the company’s mobile network, unlimited phone plans, and Microsoft Teams, one of the leading collaboration products on the market.

Since early 2020, the coronavirus pandemic drove many employees out of the office to work from remote locations. While some companies enabled their team members to stay productive, many others faced unreliable internet and few ways to collaborate – leaving them frustrated and unable to do their best work.

The UScellular Remote Workforce Solution consists of three flexible components:

Remote Workforce Internet

Flexible packages range from a reliable, mobile option for small businesses to custom, highly secure solutions for enterprise-sized businesses with 5G and 4G access complete with enhanced security, content filtering, and cloud management.

Collaboration Tools

Microsoft Teams gives you everything you need in one resource: video conferences, calls, chat, and integration with familiar
Office applications.

Unlimited Phone Plans with 5G and 4G LTE, including unlimited hotspot

 

TDS Telecom expanding into Billings, Montana

TDS Telecom was recently granted a municipal franchise by the city of Billings, Montana, to build a 500-mile fiber-to-the-home network. The network will ultimately connect more than 40,000 homes and businesses across the community and will deliver internet speeds up to 2Gig, TDS’ all-digital TV service, TDS TV®+, and phone options.

Billings is the first city in Montana to receive a fiber optic network. “With TDS Fiber, residents of Billings can ready their home for the future. We’re proud to install fiber-optic telecom lines in the great city of Billings,” said Jim Butman, president and CEO of TDS Telecom.

Billings City Administrator Chris Kukulski said the addition of TDS to Billings will result in higher-quality broadband and cable services at a more competitive price. “This competition will improve the city’s economy,” he said.

Montana will be the 32nd state where TDS offers its services. TDS is also building fiber networks in Spokane, Washington; Coeur d’Alene, Hayden, Hayden Lake, Post Falls, and Rathdrum, Idaho.

America’s Locally Grown Wireless

When you live in the community you serve, you see things differently. Welcome to America’s Locally Grown Wireless, brought to you by UScellular.

Our Network

UScellular continues to invest in technology and make enhancements to its wireless network to create a faster, better data experience. The company is also making sure consumers in more rural areas aren't left out from getting access to the latest tech and fast data speeds by building its 5G network like it has in the past, starting in areas where other carriers are not.

Keeping Our Community Connected through COVID-19

During this unprecedented coronavirus pandemic, wireless communication has become more important than ever, as many people are using their smartphones to stay in contact with family and friends and conducting work and education-related activities remotely. UScellular is committed to supporting our customers impacted by the coronavirus pandemic and is proud to have signed the FCC’s Keep Americans Connected Pledge. UScellular’s network teams have steadfastly monitored the network 24 hours a day, increased investments in capacity and made network enhancements to meet changing wireless needs. The company’s network was built for times like this – with extra capacity to manage unexpected increases in usage. In specific areas of the country, UScellular requested and was granted Special Temporary Authority from the FCC to use certain spectrum to ensure it can handle increasing demand for internet access, especially in rural communities.

Locally Grown Communities

UScellular is more than a store in your town, the company is committed to supporting local causes in our communities that strengthen the neighborhoods where we live and work. UScellular associates volunteer thousands of hours each year to give back, and the company has a long-standing financial commitment to support local events, groups and STEM education opportunities for youth.
