U.S. Cellular planning a switch to tiered data pricing
U.S. Cellular has announced that it expects to make a switch to tiered data pricing
U.S. Cellular has announced plans move into a tiered pricing structure sometime “in the next two or three quarters”.
No details were released on how those tiers might shake out or how much they might cost, PhoneScoop reports.
U.S. Cellular will follow AT&T and Verizon into the tiered data camp, with Sprint being the last holdout - but that’s unlikely to last for long.
The era of unlimited data is swiftly coming to an end.
On a positive note, U.S. Cellular also claimed that its LTE 4G rollout is still on track for November. As Engadget points out, the move to LTE seems like a logical reason behind the switch to tiered data.
If you recall, back in June the carrier announced that it would release eight new Android smartphones and two tablets by the end of 2011. Seven of the eight handsets will run Android 2.3 Gingerbread while the eighth will be on Windows Phone 7.
One of the seven Android phones will also be 4G LTE-enabled.
