Verizon to buy Alltel?

verizon_logo According to a story at CNBC, US wireless carrier Verizon is “in deep talks to acquire Alltel” for around $27 billion according to sources close to the deal.

If that figure sounds familiar in regards to Alltel you’re right–last May TPG and Goldman Sachs Capital Partners announced a $27.5 billion deal to take Alltel private, that deal closed in November, 2007.

No comment from either company at the moment.
