San Antonio, Texas, August 21, 2007

AT&T Inc. (NYSE:T) has announced that the readers of Multi-Housing News have selected AT&T as a 2007 Technology Choice Award Winner in the field of telecommunications. AT&T supports property owners in their work to attract and retain residents with complete, reliable, end-to-end and next-generation communications and entertainment solutions through its recently rebranded AT&T Connected Communities program.

Multi-Housing News is a national publication that reaches more than 70,000 readers each month. It provides chief executives, property owners, developers, builders and managers in the multiunit housing industry with the most current and complete news, information and analysis to help them run efficient and profitable businesses. Winners of the publication's Technology Choice Awards are decided by readers who cast votes online for their top providers across nine technology categories, including telecommunications.

Through the AT&T Connected Communities program, the company works directly with apartment ownership groups, apartment management groups, real estate investment trusts, single-family residential developers and local, regional and national single-family builders to provide voice, video and Internet services. The program delivers advanced communications and entertainment services to rental properties and residential developments.

"We are honored to be recognized by this award because we know the challenges that today's property owners face — and because we're glad to have the opportunity to help them meet those challenges," said Bill Story, vice president, AT&T Connected Communities. "Our work through AT&T Connected Communities is one strategic way that we can support property owners with the advanced communications and entertainment services that their residents expect — as we strive to be the only communications and entertainment company they will ever need."

Now operating throughout AT&T's 22-state local service area, AT&T Connected Communities supports property owners by providing the marketing and provisioning of fiber-based services and other technologies to the homes in their communities. The program will enable AT&T to make Internet Protocol-based communications and entertainment services available to hundreds of thousands of residents as those services are deployed across AT&T's markets.

To date, the AT&T Connected Communities program has contracts completed with thousands of leased properties across the country for AT&T communications and entertainment services.
