US Cellular turns on 5G network for Dodgeville customers

US Cellular customers in Dodgeville are now able to access the company's 5G network.
Other towns with access to 5G in Wisconsin include Janesville, Manitowoc, Racine and more. Additional 5G coverage will be added to enhance the network experience for UScellular customers in Wisconsin in the future as part of the company's multi-year expansion for 5G.
"US Cellular customers in Dodgeville will have access to even faster data connection speeds for a better experience on city streets, country roads and in their homes," said Jared Blecha, director of sales for US cellular 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."
The company recently announced it will activate 5G in select areas in 11 states throughout the second half of 2020. The states include California, Maine, Maryland, New Hampshire, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Oregon, Texas, Virginia, Washington and West Virginia. The new states join parts of Iowa and Wisconsin that launched 5G service to customers earlier this year.
The multi-year network expansion for 5G in Wisconsin is a result of previous network investments to modernize equipment and software. In 2019, UScellular invested $56 million in 5G upgrades to enhance the network experience for Wisconsin residents.
The company has a growing portfolio of 5G smartphones from Samsung and LG, connected devices and IoT solutions with a range of price points for everyone to experience 5G.
This 5G network deployment is on the company's 600 MHz spectrum and will provide customers in Wisconsin communities with faster data speeds, seamless video chatting and a more responsive mobile experience.
A 5G coverage map is available at This will be updated throughout the year and beyond as more 5G network coverage is added. For more information about UScellular's 5G network, please go to
