LITTLE ROCK, Ark. - Alltel, owner of America's largest wireless network, announced today that its full lineup of advanced wireless products and services is now available to new customers.
Alltel last year merged with Western Wireless Corporation, which operated as Cellular One, and has been introducing its offerings in stages as the two companies integrated their operations. Existing customers will have access to all of Alltel's products and services after the transition is complete in mid-March.
"This is a very exciting day for us because we now can provide new customers with the full Alltel experience, including cool handsets like the Motorola RAZR V3c and exciting services like MobiTV," said Harry Bruns, president of wireless retail services for Alltel. "We also have America's largest network, covering more of the country than any other company, as well as the industry's only network quality guarantee, anytime plan changes and unlimited calls home."
Last fall, Alltel rolled out its Total Freedom calling plans that offer customers nationwide coverage with no roaming or long-distance charges. Calling plans start at $29.99 a month and offer customers expanded local coverage not included in the former Cellular One local rate plans.
With Axcess Mobile Web 2.0, customers can browse Web sites, send and receive email, play Web games and receive news, weather and sports alerts and directory information on their phones. Axcess Mobile Web can be added to any service plan for $5.99 per month.
Alltel Axcess Messaging Packs let customers send and receive any combination of text, picture, video or instant messages for one low monthly price. Messaging Packs start at $5.99 per month for 300 messages. With the All Axcess Pass, customers receive unlimited text, picture and video messaging in addition to Axcess Mobile Web 2.0 for $19.99 a month.
Alltel is a customer-focused communications company with more than 15 million customers in 36 states and nearly $10 billion in annual revenues.
