    Wow! That's very good. By far the best I've ever seen from them on here. If only they were like that where I live. But I guess I haven't seen any provider in my experience do that good here. I hope we get some network improvements soon so we can get speeds like this.

    U.S. Cellular is using Band 5 and Band 12 (owned by their bidding arm/USCC Sub, King Street Wireless) for LTE here. Out of all the carriers here (VZ, ATT, TMO, USCC), USCC has the least amount of spectrum.

    Yeah. That's not very much. In my area they use bands 2, 5, and 12. However I think they have a lot of unused spectrum too. I think they could be faster even with what they use but they're not. It seems like all the bands are about equally as fast.

    USCC does own some AWS-1 and 600 here (in addition to the 700 and Band 5 of course), but I don't believe they're using it right now.

    AWS-1 1735-1740
    2135-2140

    600MHz 647-652
    693-698
    91 G PEA

    Those are the bands, but as far as the amount of spectrum in each band, USCC has the least.

    Yeah. They have AWS-1 here too but it's also unused. They seem to have like 20 mhz of it on 2 separate frequencies but they aren't using it at all. Maybe if they'd use it they could make their network faster. They don't have any 600 here though so that means if they ever want to match their CDMA I think their only option is to put up more towers. I think they may be hiding VOLTE from us because their LTE is not as good coverage wise as their CDMA and giving it to T-Mobile customers at least according to T-Mobile's coverage map but I'm not sure. I haven't found any proof yet about that though.

    Wow! Great speeds. I wish I got speeds like that. That's the highest speed I've ever seen from US Cellular from any source.

    Good. Better than what I usually get. I got this on the 1st. I'm pretty sure this was in Fayetteville, WV at the intersection in front of Walmart and stuff. I forget what band this was for sure. This is the best speedtest I've had in a while.Name:  Screenshot_20180709-153909_Speedtest.jpg

    Here is a test that is decent I guess. Still not the best I've ever seen but more than enough to do whatever you want with. This was at home. This seems to be on band 12 10 MHz with band 2 5 MHz on CA.Name:  Screenshot_20180827-200434_Speedtest.jpg

    Well. I will say I now have the regular "unlimited" plan. My download speeds aren't as fast as they used to be being limited to 3 MBPS. The uploads at least for now still seen to be fine though. I'm just glad to have more data. I couldn't speedtest much before anyways because it blew through data like crazy. However, this means I can no longer show the full potential of the USCC network. There is also a picture below with my last speedtest before it was switched over. I'm not sure which band I was on for that test.Name:  Screenshot_20181216-192315_Speedtest.jpg

    Yeah. Now that is a very good speedtest. That’s up there with some of the best I’ve seen on any network(I’ve mostly only tested US Cellular and Sprint). I recently got the 3 MBPS plan so I can’t really test their network speed anymore. But before that, I never got close to that Evernote USCC. The best I’ve gotten on native USCC was from the first post on this thread which was I think 42 MBPS. It does seem like their network can be faster in rural places because that test was on I think a border tower. I live in West Virginia though. It seems like USCC invests a lot more money into making their network better in Wisconsin than in West Virginia. I’ve never been to Wisconsin though so I’ve never experienced it for myself. I wonder what bands this was on.
