AT&T announced that it has completed an acquisition of the assets, including licenses, network assets and subscribers, of Easterbrooke Cellular, a provider of wireless services in West Virginia that operated under the Cellular One brand.

According to a statement from AT&T, the addition of Easterbrooke's wireless network will complement AT&T's existing network in West Virginia and will allow the carrier to deliver broader wireless coverage to customers in that area, including Easterbrooke's more than 19,000 subscribers.

AT&T says it will immediately begin to integrate and enhance the Easterbrooke and AT&T wireless networks. AT&T plans to make virtually the full portfolio of AT&T products and services available to Easterbrooke's subscribers in the first quarter of 2008. After the integration process is complete, Easterbrooke customers may migrate to AT&T rate plans without incurring upgrade fees. During a transition period, AT&T will honor the current rate plans of Easterbrooke customers.

The completion of the acquisition of Easterbrooke's assets comes after a review process, which included approval by or filings with the state of West Virginia, the FCC and the Department of Justice.
