U.S. Cellular launches unique program to let customers test network


One of the big challenges for any consumer buying cellular service is trying to figure out whether the service really is better than what they currently have. Invariably it seems that no matter what network one is on, there is always that friend or family member that seems to have better coverage with their carrier, but researching the matter usually yields conflicting information. Wireless carrier U.S. Cellular hopes to address this problem with a new program that lets potential customers test their coverage for a week with no strings attached.

In announcing the new program, the U.S. Cellular web site indicates:

“You deserve to know what to expect from a wireless network before you sign on the dotted line. That’s why, for a limited time, you’re invited to test-drive the U.S. Cellular network for a whole week without signing up for service.”

There is no cost and no commitment for the “test-drive.” The U.S. Cellular web site indicates the offer is only available at participating locations. You can hit the source link to enter your zip code to see if there is a store near you.

Would you like to see more carriers offer the ability to test cell service in the places you use your phone and in the ways you use it?

    Now this is a way to attract new customers. Much better than T-Horrible putting lipstick on the pig plans with no contracts that really do tie you into a contract.
