Chicago — Regional carrier U.S. Cellular will join other cellular carriers in entering the home phone market, giving consumers another option to cut the cord with a wireless service that costs less than standard landline service.
The LTE/CDMA carrier plans to offer a device that connects to up to two corded phones or multiple cordless phones to the U.S. Cellular network. The device will cost one cent with a two-year contract for a $19.99/month service that offers unlimited nationwide calling, voicemail, caller ID, call waiting, call forwarding and three-way calling.
The service will be available June 7 in U.S. Cellular stores and on the company’s online store on June 20.
The device comes with two RJ11 ports, antenna, wall charger and a rechargeable battery pack.
This TWICE webinar, hosted by senior editor Alan Wolf, will take a look at what may be the hottest CE products at retail that will be sold during the all-important fourth quarter. Top technologies, market strategies and industry trends will be discussed with industry analysts and executives.
