Gah! Thanks, Michael. Yes. Western Wireless purchased the CellularONE brand name from SBC. The many SBC CellularONE markets became Cingular. Dobson CellularONE and Western Wireless CellularONE remained CellularONE. WW owned the brand for a few years; Dobson owns a C1 franchise. Anyone have a list of the other C1 franchisees? - Apple Valley, CA -

[TELECOM Digest Editor's Note: Dobson owns the Cellular One franchise here in Independence, and a few miles southeast of here in Liberty, KS has an antenna set up which is used not only by Cellular One but by other carriers such as Cingular Wireless and US Cellular and Alltel. PAT]
