Centennial purchased by Verizon Wireless

BASKING RIDGE, N.J. — Verizon Wireless purchased from AT&T certain operating assets of Centennial Communications Corp. in Louisiana and Mississippi for $235 million.

The transaction was agreed to last year by Verizon Wireless and AT&T and satisfies certain divestiture requirements of the regulatory approvals needed for AT&T to complete its acquisition of Centennial Communications.

The company will continue to use the Centennial brand for the next several months as it works to convert Centennial’s existing wireless network to CDMA technology.

For now, there are no changes to customers’ calling plans or service. Before the network conversion in a particular area is complete, customers will receive a letter from Verizon Wireless explaining their service changeover.

The Centennial markets that will become a part of Verizon Wireless include Adams, Franklin, Jefferson and Wilkinson counties.
