Verizon Wireless has snarfed up Cellular One of Northeast Pennsylvania. We wondered how long this carrier serving 2 counties of the Keystone state could survive, but it was a surprise to us that they were owned by US Cellular. So this one goes as a loss of beachfront property for US Cellular.
JD Power just awarded US Cellular with more customer satisfaction kudos, but they still seem to be swimming upstream. The folks along the Delaware River should see better service outside their home market but the local network already provided good coverage. We're not crying over this transaction, but 'it's the principle of the thing...'
