AT&T To Deliver Free Access To Nation's Largest Wi-Fi Network; Add Greater Value To Leading Broadband Service
Millions Of AT&T Broadband Customers To Receive Free Wi-Fi Connectivity at More Than 10,000 AT&T Hotspots Nationwide
San Antonio, Texas, January 23, 2008
AT&T Inc. (NYSE:T) today announced that more than 10 million AT&T broadband subscribers will soon have free unlimited access to the company's nationwide Wi-Fi network, the largest Wi-Fi network in the United States. The offer delivers an annual saving of $60 for AT&T broadband customers, and an annual saving of nearly $240 compared with AT&T Wi-Fi costs for consumers who do not have an AT&T broadband plan.
The enhancement plays directly into the company's efforts to increase the value of broadband by adding more ways for consumers to stay connected to their worlds. The move also reflects the growing popularity of wireless-enabled devices - from the iPhone to PDAs - as reports claim that more than one-third of Internet users have logged on using a wireless connection from home, at work or someplace else - showing an increase in on-the-go connections1.
