Alltel still exists??

I thought verizon acquired alltel... ??
"In early 2009, Verizon Wireless acquired Alltel, although the Alltel brand will remain until it is gradually phased out through the middle of 2009. "

Well, it is now almost the middle of 2011... *scratching my head*..

So yeah, I'm as confused...
Verizon purchased Alltel, to win government approval, they offered to divest 104 markets. 79 of these markets went to at&t and the other 26 went to Atlantic Tel-Network. Altantic then purchased the rights to the 'Alltel' brand name and now operates...

Yes they do

Not saying they are huge or anything, but last I saw they had around 1 million wireless subscribers in the US. But they parent company runs networks in numerous countries, I know in the Caribbean and I think South America.

I know they just started working on 4G for the Navajo Nation.

It's a real company. Not the just the remnants that will be disappearing after a set amount of time is up. They own the Altell name now.
