Alltel Launches Mobile Media Packages


Alltel, the nation’s fifth-largest wireless carrier, is now letting new customers bundle applications with their handsets at the time of purchase with the carrier’s new Alltel Connect Packs.

There are five bundles to choose from, ranging from $9.99 per month to $34.99 per month. The $9.99 pack gives you unlimited Web and mobile access, while the other ones pile on additional mobile content such as TV on Demand, Alltel Radio Basic, wireless E-mail, My Cast Weather, Alltel Navigation, and a Realtone Jukebox Subscription.

Back in June, Verizon Wireless acquired Alltel in a $28.1 billion deal in an effort to gobble up spectrum, increase its subscriber base, and increase the size of its IN network calling community.
