PORTLAND, OR--(Marketwired - Oct 13, 2015) - Consumer Cellular, the mobile carrier with the highest overall customer satisfaction according to Nielsen Mobile Insights, will give its customers free service on October 15 in celebration of the company's 20th anniversary.

"October 15 marks a major milestone for our company," said John Marick, CEO of Consumer Cellular. "Our customers have taught us so much over the past 20 years and we are continually inspired and energized by their positive feedback. To thank them, we announced Consumer Cellular's Free Service Day where our customers can talk and text as much as they want without using any of the minutes or text messages on their monthly plans."
