Some surprising news was announced yesterday, as Bluegrass Cellular is being purchased. It was made public Monday that cellular giant Verizon had entered into an agreement to purchase Bluegrass Cellular. Executives say the purchase will help Bluegrass customers stay connected in the rural communities they serve.
The purchase price has not been disclosed. Bluegrass serves approximately 210 thousand customers across 34 counties in Kentucky. The agreement is still subject to approval from the FCC.
