    Alltel's Axcess Broadband to provide high-speed wireless data
    service;

    EVDO technology delivers speeds comparable to cable or DSL

    LYNCHBURG, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dec. 14, 2006--Alltel Wireless
    (NYSE: AT), America's largest network, today announced that it is
    expanding its Axcess Broadband service to Lynchburg and surrounding
    communities, including Charlottesville. 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.
    The Lynchburg coverage area stretches from Hollymead to Danville.
    Axcess Broadband is also now available in Culpeper.
    Alltel introduced Axcess Broadband in Richmond and Norfolk in
    2005, and earlier this month the company enlarged the Norfolk coverage
    to include Suffolk and areas south and east of Virginia Beach.
    Axcess Broadband makes it easy to surf the Internet, access e-mail
    and calendars and download large, graphic-rich files while on the go.
    Using the service, customers can access advanced business, news 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.
    "Alltel Wireless is committed to meeting the growing data needs of
    our customers," said Ron Senchak, vice president of business solutions
    for Alltel Wireless in Virginia. "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."
    In the past year Alltel has introduced Axcess Broadband service in
    metropolitan areas such as Charlotte, Tampa, Phoenix and Cleveland; in
    smaller cities such as Wilmington and Raleigh, N.C., and in towns such
    as Savannah, Ga., Dothan, Ala., and Durango, Colo.
    Alltel plans to launch Axcess Broadband in additional markets
    across the country in 2006 and 2007, giving it one of the largest EVDO
    footprints of any U.S. carrier.
    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's Suffolk store is
    located at 1201 N. Main St. and can be reached at (757) 923-5312.
    Alltel is owner and operator of the nation's largest wireless
    network and has more than 11 million wireless customers.
