Alltel Launches Four Android Handsets
Alltel still exists??
Well, it is now almost the middle of 2011... *scratching my head*..
So yeah, I'm as confused as you are.
Yeah but I thought those divested markets were purchased by AT&T. Which seems to be the case up here in Montana.
That was my understanding as well. I know AT&T grabbed areas of Florida too. I haven't seen Chad on TV in a while here in NC ... soooo ... wow. I guess there's markets Verizon and AT&T couldn't aquire?
I'm going to have to wiki this.
This makes me wonder about AT&T and T-Mobile. Obviously, if the FCC approves that transaction, there are going to be markets where T-mobile will still exist or they might go to Verizon. On any note, I get the feeling the FCC and AT&T will be going back and forth on this for quite a while ... and if/when it gets approved that will add a larger length of time with many legalities in the midst of such a merger. I won't even attempt to understand how long this could take, no...
There's a reason why at&t and Verizon are the biggies...you know what it is?
Bundling. More than a century of experience has shown that selling telephone service ALONE is something that it is difficult to make money from. The reason at&t and Verizon rake in the dollars is becuase they offer more, DSL, FIOS/U-Verse and so forth.....the real money in telcom is in the bundles, and the only companies that are in good shape right now are those that can offer it....
This is true not just of the biggies like at&t and Verizon but also smaller companies like Qwest. You want to make mone...
Hooray for "Winey little runts" then. May they remain a pain in Verizon and AT&T's rears for many years to come. I'm hoping the FTC, and DoJ give AT&T double deuce middle fingers and nix this thing then T-Mobile emerges three BILLION dollars richer and with a SWEET roaming agreement with AT&T in its back pocket. Competitive balance would be restored and everyone would be happy.
They'll be modifications and markets divested, sure but the deal is going through. Get over it.
(although shouldn't it be whiney little runts? Unless Sprint is soaked in wine, in which case it makes more sense...)
Winey little runts.
😲 😁 😎
So true and they blame everyone else for their shortcomings. Sprint needs to mind their own business. Maybe they should try improving their crappy 2.5ghz WiMAX network. Verizon's LTE blows it away. Beautiful high speeds and low latency and.... IT WORKS INDOORS!
So, in short 'no the old Alltel doesn't exist anymore, but the Alltel name is still in use by a different company in several old Alltel markets'.
An old classmate of mine just "offered" to serve 90 days in a plea deal. You know, as a nice gesture.
