Verizon Wireless has completed its purchase of partnership interests in Mohave Cellular from Frontier and Rio Virgin Telephone. The telco now owns 100% of Mohave Wireless. The transaction will expand Verizon’s footprint in northwest Arizona. Mohave Wireless’ spectrum license and operations cover a population of 203,000 and Verizon will integrate Mohave’s EV-DO 3G network, with plans to deploy LTE services in the near future. The telco will serve Mohave’s customers using the existing brand name, until network integration is complete in early 2014. Verizon will notify Mohave customers about the service transition.
