Item# 4286alltel

Alltel was founded in 1943 as Allied Telephone Company. The company specialized in installing poles and cabling for local phone companies in Arkansas. Later, Allied Telephone would merge with Mid Continent Telephone (founded by Weldon W. Case and his brother, Nelson H), signaling the true start of the Alltel Company known today. The company expanded far beyond the local telephone service provider and by 1985, the company had opened its first wireless system in North Carolina. The company would become totally wireless providers in December of 2005, leaving behind its local business operations.
