Alltel announced a white label deal with Boingo Wireless that will give the carrier's subscribers an alternative data plan option: WiFi. The service is called Alltel Wi-Fi and will cost between $10 and $30 a month, depending on the chosen usage plan. The carrier is also going to offer a bundled EVDO/WiFi plan with unlimited usage for $69.98 a month. Alltel is also selling a few pay-as-you-go plans for customers who do not have an Alltel account or those Alltel subscribers looking for "a little bit of WiFi at a time." Boingo Wireless has WiFi hotspots or deals with Barnes & Noble, Avis, Marriott Hotels, Embassy Suites, Holiday Inn Hotels, Hilton Hotels and others.
