U.S. Cellular Next in Line for Tiered Data

The number of wireless providers providing all-you-can-consume data is set to dwindle by one more as U.S. Cellular is the latest carrier to be tied to tiered plans.  According to PhoneScoop, the provider indicated a desire to move to tiered voice and data plans somewhere over the next two to three quarters.  U.S. Cellular didn’t make any references to pricing or data allotments at this time nor did they give any additional specifics.  The carrier has plans to introduce their LTE network later this year (November) and expects to offer at least one Android-based handset by the end of 2011.

Any U.S. Cellular subscribers surprised by the news of tiered data?

    Good article. One thing that should be clarified though is that they have a pretty large variety of Android phones already. It should say that they plan on having atleast 1 4G LTE phone by the end of the year.
