Verizon closes on purchase of some U.S. Cellular assets, including A Block spectrum
The purchase by Verizon covers U.S. Cellular customers in an area of 1700 square miles and includes a population of 110,000 people. Verizon will use the U.S. Cellular name at first to provide service to the customers acquired in the transaction. Once the integration of the acquired properties has been completed, and these customers have 4G LTE coverage,Verizon will switch to its brand. This is expected to take place in mid-2014.
Verizon's 4G LTE signal now covers 97% of the U.S. population, reaching over 500 markets. The company has invested $80 billion to date to roll out and expand its LTE pipeline.

Is it just me or is US Cellular seem to be gitting picked appart by all of the "Big Four" at every turn? I suspect that there is not much more left of it, at least where I live.

yeah, they are being taken apart by everyone now. I wonder what they plan to do with everyone that is still apart of the network in the area
