Dallas, Texas, August 27, 2008

AT&T Inc. (NYSE:T) today announced that leading industry analyst firm Gartner Inc. has positioned AT&T in the Leaders Quadrant of its "Magic Quadrant for U.S. Wireless Service Providers, 2008" report.¹

According to Gartner, "this Magic Quadrant assesses suppliers of cellular-based wireless and mobile enterprise voice and data networking solutions in the U.S. This includes cellular voice, low and high speed data services (provided over wide-area cellular networks) and remote-access services. Enterprises typically purchased these services in two- to three-year contracts that include equipment, networking services and day-to-day operational support."

"In our opinion, AT&T's position in the Leaders Quadrant of the U.S. Wireless Service Providers report published by Gartner is testament to AT&T's leadership in this space, as more than 71.4 million customers across the United States rely on our wireless voice and data services," said Ralph de la Vega, president and CEO, AT&T Mobility.
