Alltel To Buy Western Wireless

Alltel has agreed to buy Western Wireless, which operates networks in most states west of the Mississippi under the Cellular One brand. The two networks primarily operate CDMA networks, Alltel in the Midwest and Southeast and Western Wireless in most states west of the Mississppi. Pending approval from each company and the FCC, the buyout is expected to be complete mid-year. After the buyout, Alltel will be the largest regional carrier, and the fifth largest American carrier. Alltel and Cellular One have very little overlap, so the buyout will serve to expand service areas and create a larger network to better compete with tier 1 national carriers, rather than improve coverage in current markets.
