Cellular South to buy Corr Wireless

Cellular South, the nation’s largest privately held wireless provider, announced Oct. 16 the company’s plans to purchase Corr Wireless in Alabama. With this purchase, Cellular South will now be able to offer services to customers in the cities of Huntsville, Madison, Decatur, and Gadsden, plus the counties of Blount, Cullman, Marshall, Dekalb and Jackson in Alabama, as well as Rome, Ga.

The acquisition will give Corr Wireless customers the advantage of Cellular South’s reliable wireless network, superior customer service, and dedicated community investment, according to Ben Pace, chief financial officer for Cellular South. Pace said, “Even in this tough economy, Cellular South is continuing to grow its customer base and expand its service offerings.”

“Corr’s vision and philosophy go hand-in-hand with Cellular South’s, so the partnership is a good fit on all levels,” said Bryan Corr, president and CEO of Corr Wireless. “Both Corr Wireless and Cellular South are dedicated to providing customers with the best service, network, and value.”

Corr Wireless Communications is a leading regional wireless carrier operating primarily in northeastern Alabama and Rome, Ga., covering a population of more than 1.3 million people in 18 counties. Corr currently employs approximately 130 employees, many of whom work in 19 company-owned stores providing both retail and wholesale wireless services.
