Alltel stores in Florida getting Verizon makeover

Verizon-logo Verizon Wireless acquired Alltel in January, but now Floridians should be noticing the store switchovers, as 21 Alltel stores in Florida get remodeled. They all have the Verizon signs and merchandise, but the remodeling at some is still going on and is expected to be completed at the end of 2009. About nine of the 21 stores are done, but none of them are in South Florida.

Part of the conversion includes more than 700 former Alltel cell sites and several large switching facilities in Florida being reconfigured for Verizon's network. The multi-million dollar network conversion is expected to be completed in Florida by 2011. Verizon reports it spent nearly $2 billion on network enhancements throughout Florida since 2000, when the company was formed.
