Alltel snags roaming with Sprint-Nextel

Looks like "America's Largest Network" just got larger: Alltel inked a 10 year roaming deal with Sprint-Nextel for CDMA voice, 1xRTT, and EV-DO coverage to complement their own network and their already existent coverage deals with Verizon, and to a lesser extent Cingular, and T-Mo. We're not sure what this brings their square mileage up to nowadays, but if you're an Alltel customer who likes to travel, you're probably pretty stoked, while the rest of you Sprint users get some new friends to share your network with (in addition to Helio).
