While I was watching a report about this over my morning coffe, I picked up my AT&T iphone, and attempted to log onto Facebook only to find I had no service.
AT&T announced in November 2008, it was qcquiring Centennial Wireless. They were ultimately required to divest 8 Centennial markets, 5 to Verizon, including Lafayette, La.
