Pioneer Electronics has announced that it will begin offering 4G mobile data services in the United States starting August 2.
The company, which provides cell phone services and networking equipment to the electronics and telecom industries, will offer service for a price of $199 for four months.
Pioneer said it will also offer free 4G wireless Internet access to certain customers in the Northeast, West and Midwest regions of the country.
The Pioneer-designed, 4G-capable smartphones will be available to purchase from September through October.
The announcement comes on the heels of reports that the company is preparing to launch a new 4G service in the U.S.
The news comes on a day that Samsung Electronics, the world’s second-largest smartphone maker by market share, said that it would start offering 4H services, which includes 4G services, at its flagship Galaxy S5 and Galaxy S6 smartphones.
Samsung Electronics said it plans to begin offering its 4H service on October 30, while its rival Google announced that its new Pixel 2 phones will support 4G at launch.
