    Title: Alltel Wireless Continues National Wireless Broadband Rollout in Three Markets
    Date: 12/7/2006 9:12:00 AM

    LITTLE ROCK, Ark.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dec. 7, 2006--Alltel Wireless
    (NYSE: AT):

    -- High-speed wireless data services come to Youngstown, Ohio,
    and Fayetteville, N.C.

    -- EVDO network expands in Norfolk, Va., and surrounding

    -- Next-generation technology delivers speeds comparable to cable
    or DSL

    Alltel Wireless (NYSE: AT), America's largest network, has
    extended its Axcess Broadband service to Youngstown, Ohio and
    Fayetteville, N.C. The company also has expanded its wireless
    broadband service in the Norfolk, Va. area. This next-generation EVDO
    (evolution data optimized) technology provides customers with
    unlimited wireless access to the Internet at speeds comparable to
    wired broadband connections such as cable modem or DSL.

    Using the service, customers can access advanced business and
    entertainment applications from their laptops, smartphones or handsets
    at average speeds of 400 to 700 Kbps with maximum speeds of up to 2.4
    Mbps. Axcess Broadband makes it easy to surf the Internet, access
    e-mail and calendars and download large, graphic-rich files while on
    the go.

    "Alltel Wireless is committed to meeting the growing data needs of
    our customers throughout the country," said Elisabeth Owen, president
    of business solutions for Alltel Wireless. "Axcess Broadband wireless
    Internet service delivers an unmatched wireless broadband experience
    that will keep both traveling business professionals and casual users
    connected with the fastest and most reliable data services."

    Alltel began offering Axcess Broadband in 2005 and is rapidly
    expanding its high-speed network across the country, giving it one of
    the largest EVDO footprints of any carrier. Alltel has introduced
    Axcess Broadband in metropolitan areas such as Cleveland, Phoenix,
    Tampa and Charlotte; in smaller cities such as Little Rock, Ark.,
    Raleigh, N.C., and Savannah, Ga.; and in towns such as Jonesboro, Ark., Dothan, Ala., and Casa Grande, Ariz.

    Axcess Broadband is available for $59.99 a month for unlimited use
    with qualifying voice plans. In addition to supporting a wide range of
    productivity enhancing business applications, it enables Alltel's
    Axcess TV, with more than 25 channels and XM radio, with 20 of the
    best satellite radio music channels. To experience the high-speed
    network, customers will need an EVDO-capable handset, such as the
    silver or fire red MOTORAZR V3m, or a laptop PC data card, such as the
    Kyocera Passport 1xEVDO PC Card.

    For more information on Axcess devices, visit an Alltel Wireless
    retail store or log on to www.alltel.com.

    Alltel is owner and operator of the nation's largest wireless
    network and has more than 11 million wireless customers.
