AT&T is announcing:
-- Integrated Offers. AT&T now offers to midsized and large businesses AT&T's full range of wireline and wireless services and devices, delivered via a unified sales force. By midyear, AT&T intends to offer its full suite of wireline and wireless services to business customers under a single contract. Customers may receive discounts on their wireline services based on a single revenue commitment that takes into account their wireline and wireless calling volumes with AT&T. AT&T can also provide on-net pricing for wireline-to-wireless calling, which means that a customer's wireline calls will receive a special on net rate when calling AT&T-provided wireless or wireline business users.
-- Small Business Offers. AT&T's small business customers can purchase a quadruple-play package of integrated local, long distance, data and wireless services in the company's 22-state local service region. -- Wireless Portfolio. In addition to the integrated offers, midsized and large business customers will now be able to purchase any wireless service or device offered by Cingular (now AT&T). Until now, only certain plans or devices were available to AT&T business customers as part of an integrated offer. All services, plans and devices can be sold on a stand-alone basis or can be integrated within customers' existing AT&T contract.
-- Wireless Access to Corporate VPNs. AT&T wireless data access has been added as a connectivity option for AT&T Virtual Private Network (VPN) business customers. Now remote and mobile workers can use Wi-Fi or AT&T's wireless data service to access their company's VPN, business applications and corporate information with the same ease enjoyed by their headquarter-based colleagues. Customers can also easily integrate wireless data services with their local area network, providing truly redundant network architecture. Should the primary wireline connection be interrupted, the cellular connectivity automatically activates, ensuring that critical applications keep running. AT&T's wireless WAN is immediately available and provides a business-continuity option to enterprise customers.
