Alltel was originally founded under the name Allied Telephone in the mid 1940s. At the time headquarters were Little Rock, Arkansas. A further company expansion took place forty years later when Allied merged with Mid-Continent and the name became Alltel once and for all. This merger gave the young, regionalized company the clout it needed to acquire larger networks and develop the innovative systems in keeping with the competition. Every year or so after this merger Alltel managed to boost its business and image with additional mergers, corporate negotiations and acquisitions of marketable data and information useful to the Alltel structure.
The mid to late 1990s are underscored with Alltel mergers, with Standard Group, Alliant and Liberty Cellular, all strong southeastern carriers. Then network acquisitions from Bell South and SBC Communications provided Alltel with millions more customers and a strong wireless national network.
One of the latest cell plan features is Alltel’s My Circle. Similar to the T-Mobile My Faves, My Circle takes it one step further with the option to add up to 10 of your favorite callers to your plan, make unlimited calls within the My Circle group at any time of day and to any network.
Alltel, besides the typically priced nationwide plans, also offers a prepaid option and a plan that includes international calls.
