ALLTEL Corporation
is an American telecommunications company with headquarters in Little Rock, Arkansas. Alltel provides wireless services to residential and business customers in all 50 states through roaming agreements. With its own network in 34 of those states Alltel's own wireless coverage area comprises the largest network by square miles covered in the United States. They also offer plans with voice coverage in parts of Mexico and voice and data coverage in parts of Canada

In 1943, Allied Telephone Co., a small business specializing in installing telephone poles and cabling for telephone companies across Arkansas, was founded by Charles Miller and Hugh Willbourn, Jr.

Alltel's modern history begins in 1983 when Allied Telephone and Mid-Continent Telephone, founded by Weldon W. Case and his younger brother, Nelson H., merged. The elder Case became Alltel's first chairman, based in Hudson, Ohio, where Alltel was first headquartered. In 1985, Alltel launched its first wireless system in Charlotte, North Carolina, and by 1993 Alltel had opened its first wireless retail store. Alltel was named to the S&P 500 Index in 1994. From 1995 until 2006, the Jacksonville Jaguars played at Alltel Stadium. By 1996, long-distance service was offered, and in 1997 the company's wireless and wireline businesses converged into a single organization.

On December 9, 2005, Alltel announced that it would become a wireless-only company, simultaneously merging and building a spin-off company for its wireline services.
