Starting today, Google is expanding its MVNO Project Fi by adding a third network - that of US Cellular. This means that most customers will be connected to 4G LTE 95% of the time. So far the service used to rely on the networks of Sprint and T-Mobile only.

Here's what Google said about the improvement:

"Part of Project Fi's promise is to ensure you have connection when you need it, even in areas with poor speeds or limited coverage. Your Fi device recognizes when your connection is weak and adjusts in real time. By accessing multiple cellular networks, Fi users have a connection nearly 99% of the time, and spend about 95% of cellular time on LTE — which will improve even further with the addition of U.S. Cellular."

US Cellular is among the large mobile networks in the US with coverage in 23 states. It has 4.8 million customers, and runs a network on LTE and CDMA.

Google says that US Cellular coverage will automatically roll out to all Project Fi users over the coming weeks. No new SIM cards or hardware changes are needed.
