Alltel going unlimited?

Alltel Wireless may already be next cellular carrier to adopt an unlimited monthly plan, an internal memo is said to reveal. The announcement claims that starting today, Alltel customers will be able to sign up for a "National Freedom Unlimited" plan, which offers unlimited voice minutes each month for $100. Unlike Sprint's plan, there is no inclusion of data options in the basic package. The plan is also restricted in that subscribers must pay $100 per line for it, as opposed to the normal $10 add-on fee.

Alltel is in fact discouraging salesmen from marketing the unlimited option in most cases, as it may not only tax the company's network but can be needlessly expensive for both families and individuals. The network's My Circle plans also offer "unlimited" calling, to 5, 10 or 20 other people, at much lower prices.

The Alltel plan follows a wave of unlimited plan announcements, not only from Sprint but US Cellular, AT&T and Verizon. [via Engadget Mobile]
