Verizon Communications Inc. said Monday it is buying certain assets of Bluegrass Cellular, a rural wireless operator serving central Kentucky.

Bluegrass Cellular provides wireless service to 210,000 customers in 34 counties in rural service areas 3, 4 and 5 in central Kentucky.

Verizon said Bluegrass customers won't need to take any action at this time, and customers will receive information regarding the acquisition and the array of services that will be available from Verizon.

The acquisition is subject to Federal Communications Commission approval and other conditions, and is expected to close late this year or early in 2021.
