Alltel Information Services' new network support unit has signed a six-month contract with Hibernia Corp. to upgrade the New Orleans- based bank's wide-area computer network.

Alltel, based in Little Rock, will provide consulting and integration services. Hibernia hopes to reduce the cost of managing its computer network.

It is Alltel's largest such contract with a bank since the Enterprise Network Services group was formed last fall, a company spokesman said. He declined to disclose the value of the deal.
