Alltel Adds WiFi To Mobile Data Mix

[qi:83] Alltel Wireless, the Little Rock, Ark.-based mobile company that recently went private, is adding WiFi as a data access option for its customers. The service will cost between $10 and $30 a month, depending on the plan. Alltel will also offer a bundle of EVDO and unlimited Wi-Fi for $69.98 per month. The service was soft launched a few weeks ago. As part of the offering, Alltel is working with hotspot aggregator, Boingo Wireless. I wish folks at Sprint (S) and Verizon Wireless (VZ) start offering a similar WiFi option to their data offerings. (Update: Press release is finally out.)
