Today AT&T announced that it has fully acquired Centennial Communications. By purchasing the rural wireless provider, AT&T has bolstered its coverage footprint in the Midwest and Southeast United States (specifically, Indiana, Louisiana, Michigan, Ohio and Texas), and in Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. AT&T will integrate Centennial's products and services into its own, and will begin transitioning Centennial retail outlets to AT&T outlets as soon as possible. AT&T said that it will be providing 3G coverage in approximately 200 of Centennial's markets, and Centennial's subscribers will be able to take advantage of AT&T's services immediately. In order to gain approval for the transaction, AT&T had to agree to divest eight markets (five of them to Verizon Wireless). The total cost of the transaction is valued at $2.7 billion.

They screwed all the hard working Cente...

Customer Care doesnt get christmas bonuses. Even tho that would be sweet if they did.
From what I remember, AT&T was required to honor the existing roaming agreements in Puerto Rico for 18 months after the purchase. So, correct me if I'm wrong, but I think you're mistaken on that point.

On a side note, does anyone have an idea fo...
