Ahh, the sweet, sweet comfort of the rumor mill. Remember not too long ago when we heard that a certain regional carrier was the talk of a possible buyout
? As that rumor is taking shape, it appears that Verizon Wireless
as its eyes squarely on ol' Number Five, Alltel
. If everything turns out to be on the up-and-up and Big Brother
gives the merger a thumbs-up, the happy union will make Big Red the largest national carrier, having enough customers to crush Cingular's base by about 10 million.
