Sprint Nextel today announced they will buy affiliate Nextel Partners for $9.2 billion in cash. Nextel Partners' contract with Nextel allowed the affiliate to force a purchase by the Nextel should it ever be acquired, and they did so in October.

The purchase price was finally determined by averaging two independent valuations conducted by large investment firms. The purchase will be completed in early 2006.
