    AT&T Agrees to Sell Certain Centennial Communications Corp. Assets to Verizon Wireles

    Dallas, Texas, May 8, 2009
    newsrelease


    AT&T* today announced a definitive agreement with Verizon Wireless to sell certain wireless assets of Centennial Communications Corp. to Verizon Wireless for $240 million. The transaction is contingent on completion of AT&T?s acquisition of Centennial.

    AT&T announced plans to acquire Centennial in November 2008, and that transaction is pending regulatory approval. Under terms of the agreement with Verizon Wireless, upon receipt of regulatory approvals, Verizon Wireless will acquire former Centennial wireless properties, including licenses, network assets and nearly 120,000 current subscribers, in five service areas in Louisiana and Mississippi. The five service areas are Lafayette, La., LA-5 (Beauregard), LA-6 (Iberville), LA-7 (West Feliciana) and MS-8 (Claiborne).

    AT&T expects this sale of assets to Verizon Wireless will resolve certain potential overlap issues between AT&T?s existing footprint and Centennial?s properties and help advance final regulatory approval of the Centennial acquisition.

    AT&T?s sale of wireless assets to Verizon Wireless is also contingent upon regulatory approval and is expected to close in the fourth quarter of 2009.

    Alltel is merging with VZW and ATT acquired Centennial Wireless. Alltel customers will not be going to ATT unless they switch carriers like any other wireless customer.
