Sprint pays US Cellular $480 million for Midwest spectrum and customers -- Engadget
Sprint has cemented a deal with US Cellular to pick up its PCS spectrum and around 585,000 customers across the Midwest. The deal will land the newly-owned company 30MHz within the 1900 MHz band across Illinois, Indian, Michigan, Missouri and Ohio, with the carrier stating that it'll be putting the extra spectrum to use augmenting its coverage while it continues to roll out 4G.
US Cellular will apparently continue business elsewhere, once the deal passes regulatory approval some time year, stating that it aims to "increase focus on markets where it has strong positions" and "streamline operations" -- probably involving its own 4G expansion plans.11-07-2012 08:26 AMLike 0

2. Determine how much you're willing to pay monthly, then decide which carrier has the best features for that price range.
3. Choose phone.
4. If neither 1. or 2. is an issue than skip straight to 3.11-26-2012 10:57 PMLike 1
