Samsung Electronics signs a U.S. Cellular deal

Samsung Electronics said Sunday it will start providing network equipment to U.S. Cellular, the fifth largest mobile network operator in the United States. It is the first time the Korean company has supplied mobile network equipment to the U.S. company.

“As our latest network solutions become a larger part of the U.S. market, we are excited to advance Samsung’s 5G innovation and leadership, and continue our journey in delivering new communications technologies, including 4G LTE and 5G,” said Mark Louison, senior vice president and general manager, Networks Division, Samsung Electronics America.

Samsung Electronics plans to offer many types of 5G solutions to U.S. Cellular based on its 5G Access Unit, which Samsung claims is cheap and easy to install.

“We are excited at the prospect of working with Samsung to extend groundbreaking 4G LTE and 5G technology to our customers, expanding what is possible in consumer experience and business applications,” said Mike Irizarry, chief technology officer at U.S. Cellular.

Samsung Electronics has been expanding in the United States. It is an equipment vendor for four major carriers in the United States, including AT&T, Verizon and Sprint, which have nearly 80 percent of the mobile communication subscribers in the country.
