AT&T Offers a Variety of Broadband Choices to Connect Consumers with Their World
Company Enhances Broadband Portfolio; Adds Greater Flexibility, Continued Value
San Antonio, Texas, December 20, 2007
To meet the evolving needs of today's connected consumers, AT&T Inc. (NYSE: T) today announced even greater choice to its robust broadband lineup. From traditional home phone bundles to savings with wireless service and broadband-only options, AT&T further enhanced its broadband packages to best meet customers' individual communications and entertainment needs — with continued value, savings and immediate consumer benefit as top priorities.
Designed primarily to accommodate wireless customers looking to add broadband service, AT&T's stand-alone DSL service is now offered throughout company call centers beginning at $19.95 a month — fulfilling a commitment applied to the AT&T-BellSouth merger agreement. The service is available to customers who live within the company's traditional 22-state wireline footprint and provides downstream speeds of up to 768 Kbps.
"Bottom line, consumers want to be connected," said Bob Bickerstaff, vice president of AT&T Data Products. "Whether consumers choose a traditional broadband bundle with home phone service, or prefer to add broadband to their wireless service or even sign up for broadband only, our focus is on keeping consumers connected — in a way that mirrors their individual needs."
Customers can sign up for additional stand-alone DSL plans, including plans providing downstream speeds of up to 6.0 Mbps, also through an AT&T call center. In company retail locations, customers can order service with downstream speeds ranging from up to 1.5 Mbps to up to 6.0 Mbps. When bundled with the AT&T wireless service, packages for both broadband and wireless begin at just $60 a month.
"We have long been committed to delivering the benefits of broadband to as many consumers as possible," said Bickerstaff. "Today we are further demonstrating this commitment by adding even more broadband options."
To meet consumers' needs for broadband, AT&T offers broadband packages with downstream speeds of up to 6.0 Mbps and up to 3.0 Mbps to serve the growing number of consumers who enjoy sharing pictures online, downloading music and movies, or playing interactive games. For customers who instead prefer simple Web browsing and e-mail, broadband packages are available with downstream speeds of up to 1.5 Mbps or up to 768 Kbps.
With 13.8 million high speed Internet connections as of the third quarter of 2007, AT&T has more broadband customers than any other provider.
