With the new market launch, residents in the following communities with 4G LTE devices will be able to take advantage of speeds up to 10 times faster than the company’s 3G network:

In the Saginaw area: Saginaw, Zilwaukee, Carrollton, Buena Vista, Blumfield Corners, Bridgeport, Spaulding Township, Frankenmuth, Fosters and Birch Run.
