Dobson Cellular Systems is changing its name.
Effective March 5, 2007, Dobson Cellular Systems, Inc., will market its wireless service in Western Oklahoma and the Texas Panhandle under the trade name of Cellular One from Dobson Cellular Systems.
“Over the years, as Dobson has expanded its footprint to 17 states and grown into the leading provider of wireless service in rural America, we have consistently used the Cellular One brand name,” said Chief Marketing Officer Tom Roberts. “Last year, we were able to purchase the Cellular One name and believe the time is right to make the name change in our Dobson Cellular markets.”
The towns of Anadarko, Carnegie, Cordell, Hinton, Weatherford, Clinton, Elk City and Chickasha, Okla., and Pampa, Borger and Perryton, Texas, will be part of the name change, Roberts said. Overall, the company operates more than 70 wireless markets nationwide utilizing the Cellular One brand name.
Headquartered in Oklahoma City, Cellular One from Dobson Cellular Systems is a subsidiary of Dobson Communications Corporation.
