Verizon to Become Largest National Carrier by Swallowing Alltel

The CDMA landscape in the United States may be set for a pretty significant change as Verizon Wireless is very interested in buying Alltel, effectively making it the largest national cellular phone carrier based on number of subscribers. If the merger goes through and is approved, the Verizon-Alltel conglomerate would “tower over Cingular by about 10 million” customers.

Rumors are rumors, but this is not the first time that the two companies have been in negotiations with one another. I managed to find this interesting page on the FCC website dating back a good six or seven years, but I think that was about their landline services and not the cellular stuff.

Stay tuned.
