AT&T buying Alltel territories from Verizon

I pity the poor rural cellphone owner. First Verizon snapped up Alltel and something called Rural Cellular and now AT&T grabbed those 1.5 million subscribers in a $2.35 billion deal.

The states included in this deal are Alabama, Colorado, Iowa, and the Dakotas, among others. AT&T is also selling some of its markets in Louisiana and Mississippi to Verizon.

Are you affected by this change? Tell us about your service and what AT&T told you when you got sold.
