After stating earlier this week that they would not be participating in Verizon Wireless's LTE licensing program and would instead build its own network and services, Cellular South and Samsung have announced a deal that will bring Long Term Evolution (LTE) to the Cellular South network by the fourth quarter of 2011.

“Our move to 4G is driven by our vision of creating an unmatched experience and enabling our customers to experience pervasive wireless Internet connectivity and mobility,” said Hu Meena, president and CEO of Cellular South. “Cellular South is pleased to partner with Samsung Mobile on an LTE solution that uses our entire spectrum in the lower 700 MHz band. “This network will deliver a first-class LTE experience to our customers who want the freedom to access content and services and to communicate in new and innovative ways, whether it’s viewing video, browsing the mobile web, listening to their favorite music, gaming or social media.”
Cellular South will deploy services using voice-over LTE (VoLTE) and Samsung has committed to two LTE-enabled handsets by the fourth quarter of 2011 on the carrier. You can read the full press release after the break.
