    Arrow Michigan Non-divested Assets

    The Alltel minority owned towers, located in Hillsdale, MI (which is a holdover market), refers to a limited partnership, "Michigan RSA #9 Limited Partnership" if you look this up. It shows one of the towers located in Hillsdale COUNTY, in a town called Litchfield.. Verizon confirms this as a holdover market if you type in their zip code on thier website, which is 49252. See city data website below

    CenturyTel Inc d/b/a Century Cellunet of Michigan RSA #9 Ltd. Ptrs

    SO.... This refers back to CenturyTel... :-) see info below :-)

    This refers back to Century Cellunet, which merged with Sprint's local land line division which they spun off, known as Embarq. These two company's merged to form CenturyTel, now known as CenturyLink www.centurylink.com

    Now if you go to the SEC filings, http://www.secinfo.com/d2ZAu.u1u.2.htm#1stPage You will see listed "Michigan RSA #9 Limited Partnership"

    This list are subsidiaries of Alltel Corp. However, Alltel only had MINORITY ownership of the territories that Century Cellunet (used to be a cell phone company) aka "CenturyLink" used to contract out to build Towers, and Alltel only used them for Native Service. see website below

    http://www.complaints.com/november20...ember16.31.htm


    Your Right about the Cellco partnership that is Verizon owned, But the majority of the partners list is filled from the Dobson Communications buyout. please see web sites below.

    The FCC database indicates that the tower you are referring to was never constructed. http://wireless2.fcc.gov/UlsApp/AsrS...?regKey=618158

    However, there was a tower constructed on 1/31/2001 at 722 Herring Rd in Litchfield by CenturyTel.

    Ownership then changed on 8/27/2001 to

    Michigan RSA #9 LP d/b/a ALLTEL
    Attention To: Wireless Regulatory Supervisor
    One Allied Drive, B2F2-A
    Little Rock , AR 72202 P: (501)905-8555
    E: [email protected]

    then it changed on 2/23/09 to

    Michigan RSA #9 Limited Partnership d/b/a Alltel
    Attention To: Regulatory

    Alpharetta , GA 30009-7630 P: (770)797-1070
    E: [email protected]

    If Verizon/Alltel was a minority owner in this stucture it wouldnt be listed as the owner of record in the FCC database.

    But Verizon if the majority owner then we would not have this holdover issue. They have transferred the license But CenturyTel still holds majority ownership though i think. Otherwise these Alltel stores would have been Verizon now.

    yea

    Yea i know, i read that. What i think happened was that cancelled Cellular tower by CenturyTel, the license got repurchased by the city and turned into a water meter device tower possibly..

    Talking Update To Non-divested Michigan Finally Figured It Out!!!

    I JUST LOOKED UP THE CELL TOWER THAT IS A BLOCK AWAY FROM ME
    The Call sign is KNKQ303. (Since i live in a Holdover market, right off Pentecost hwy.) , THAT THE FCC'S DATA BASE SHOWS THAT IT WAS OWNED BY CenturyTel aka CenturyLink. :-)

    http://docs.google.com/viewer?a=v&q=...VEmFOPxSSeIAZg

    Plus i got more news. NOW FOR THE GOOD STUFF !!!!!

    CENTURYTEL ENTERED A WIRELESS AGREEMENT WITH CINGULAR (AT&T) THATS WHY WE HAVE HOLDOVER MARKETS IN LENAWEE, HILLSDALE, BRANCH COUNTIES, CHECK THE LINK BELOW

    http://forums.wirelessadvisor.com/wi...ular-deal.html

    Finally figured it out!!!, so thats why we have to wait until the FCC transaction goes through because CenturyTel Entered a Wireless Agreement with Cingular (AT&T). The Centennial store in my area just converted to AT&T last week :-)

    get back with me Clay :-)

    So from reading through all of this, how much longer are we looking at? If the AT&T/Centennial deal is all over are we just waiting for Verizon to dump off the remaining areas or does something more have to happen?

    AT&T/Centennial happened. We're waiting on Verizon/AT&T and Verizon/ATN to happen.

    The National Association of Black Owned Broadcasters (who are crying it's unfair that Verizon didn't sell to a black person for no reason other than them being black - hmm, that sounds awfully racist to me!) and the Rural Telecommunications Group (who are crying that one of their members didn't get to buy the assets) are really pushing for a full hearing - basically a trial.

    While I would've said it'd never happen, under the Obama administration who knows? We could be talking another full year if it comes to that! Let's all hope not...

    No Problem :-)

    Yea it took a little research but, i traced it back to CenturyTel and thier deal with Cingular (AT&T) thats why we have to wait untill the FCC Transaction goes through.... so hopefully soon :-)

    Here's the link's for the FCC timeline again.


    http://www.fcc.gov/transaction/att-verizon.html

    http://www.fcc.gov/transaction/verizon-att.html

    Verizon requested an Extension of time to deal with AT&T asset swap... So it could take a little longer, I'm thinking probably 2nd quarter of this year.



    HERE'S THE TOWER INFO THAT IS A BLOCK AWAY FROM ME :-) I CAN LITERALLY WALK UP TO IT LOL

    "Well I am hoping it is done by March...this is a giant confusing mess to me but I am pretty sure that I understand a little bit better now. Thank you guys for all of your help."

    This is a giant confusing mess to everyone and the FCC needs to just put a stop to it, tell the NABOB and RTG to shut up and approve the thing.

    Couldn't agree more. For ONCE, it would be nice of them all to think of the customers sitting in limbo, and small businesses sitting in limbo hanging on to survive. I mean, we can all yell and cry that this world is unfair about something.. but the sale was done. What good can come of yelling about a few dissected pieces here and there. Lets get on with it so we aren't in phone purgatory anymore.
