AT&T Mobility acquires WI Rapids-based Element Mobile

WISCONSIN RAPIDS, WI (WTAQ) - The firm of AT&T Mobility has acquired Element Mobile, a cell phone company based in Wisconsin Rapids. 

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel says the AT&T telecommunications giant will own about 60 percent of the company -- and Element will be re-named AT&T Mobility. 

The paper cited documents filed with the Federal Communications Commission.

Element Mobile took over AllTel's operations in central Wisconsin in 2011. In the months after that, the firm was the subject of a number of consumer service and billing complaints filed with the state Public Service Commission. 

Element blamed the problems on the bugs that many new companies face and work out.
