Phoenix Communications May Not Rise Again

Phoenix Communications was the cellular operation of the Oklahoma Western Telephone Company which has been taken over by Hilliary Communications.  Hilliary claims they will be upgrading the network and are no longer accepting new customers.  It looks like they are still using the network for their wireless home phone customers but the future of cellular service is in question.


Hilliary completely cancelled the web site that displayed Phoenix products giving us the impression that this Phoenix shall not rise again.  FCC records show that Hilliary has applied for the FCC Connect America Fund Phase II Auction.  If they win funds for cellular operation under that program, we expect the network to be upgraded and will offer wireless service once again.  If not, we expect they'll offer the network and licenses for sale to a neighboring or national carrier. Our Mountain Wireless Network Reports has normally rated Phoenix with a "1", the lowest possible, so it won't take much to improve their service.

Phoenix Communications may not rise, as you stated. Again This is an interesting issue for me. Hilliary claims that the network will be upgraded and that new subscribers will no longer be accepted. This article piqued my interest. I was hunting for top assignment experts at the time. In Stockholm, Evan Jager's "absolutely wonderful dream of a season" continued. I'll surely read more if you write more about it.
