    LITTLE ROCK, Ark. - ALLTEL announced today it has completed the purchase of certain assets from Cingular Wireless LLC, a joint venture between SBC Communications Inc. and BellSouth Corporation.

ALLTEL also acquired 20 MHz of spectrum and the network assets formerly held by AT&T Wireless in Wichita, Kan., along with wireless spectrum in various counties in Georgia and Texas.
