Background

Western Wireless Corporation (“WWC”) and ALLTEL Corporation (“ALLTEL”) have filed a series of applications pursuant to Sections 214 and 310(d) of the Communications Act of 1934, as amended. In these applications, the Applicants generally seek Commission approval of the transfer of control of WWC’s licensee subsidiaries to ALLTEL. This transfer of control will take place as a result of a proposed merger whereby WWC will be merged into Wigeon Acquisition LLC (“Wigeon”), a limited liability company wholly owned by ALLTEL. These transfer of control applications pertain to licenses for the Part 22 Cellular Radiotelephone Service, the Part 22 Paging and Radiotelephone Service, the Part 24 Personal Communications Service, the Part 90 Industrial/Business Pool Service, the Part 90 Private Carrier Paging Service, the Part 90 Specialized Mobile Radio Service, the Part 101 Common Carrier Fixed Point-to-Point Microwave Service, and the Part 101 Local Multipoint Distribution Service, as well as international Section 214 authorizations
