Alltel Corp. said Monday that it agreed to buy wireless service provider 360 Communications Co. for about $4.2 billion in stock, a move to create a regional niche player focused on mid-size markets. The combined company, with about $4.5 billion in annual sales and 20,000 employees, would be a force in the Southeast and Midwest and a leader in the smaller markets often overlooked by larger telecommunications companies, analysts said.
