Bluegrass Cellular has launched LTE-Advanced network, claiming up to 50% faster download speeds. The technology works by combining multiple wireless connections for added capacity, which then increases speed for users.

Bluegrass 4G LTE-Advnced expansion is made possible in part through Bluegrass’s partnership with Verizon Wireless. In 2010, Bluegrass became the first regional carrier to partner with Verizon’s LTE in Rural America program. As a result of the partnership, Bluegrass’s high-speed network in Central Kentucky is available to Verizon customers as well as its own. In return, Bluegrass Cellular customers have access to Verizon’s LTE network throughout the entire United States.

“We’re dedicated to bringing the most advanced wireless technology home to Kentucky,” said Ron Smith, President & CEO for Bluegrass Cellular. “Because of this, more of our wireless customers will have access to the fastest wireless network there is.
