    Didn't see that one coming.
    Wonder if they are eyeing Appalchian Wireless in the Eastern, KY part?

    That seems like a logical next step.

    Not for a while. Considering they just unveiled a new logo I doubt they are seriously considering selling. Maybe in 3 or 4 years when they realize they people prefer nationwide carriers

    US Cellular is family owned, and has quite a bit of market share in the places they service.. They're not going anywhere anytime soon.

    Bluegrass i'm not surprised it happened, and surprised it did not happen sooner.

    That makes two LTEiRA partners selling parts off to VZW.

    Not surprised by this one bit.

    Wondering if all of them at some point and will Verizon help these LTEiRA partners become 5GiRA

    If they end up getting Appalachian Wireless down the road, I will be jumping over to Visible, that is the only reason why I am still on Verizon. AW has great coverage in Eastern KY. AT&T isn't even close and TMO has a long way to go.
