Who AT&T is:

AT&T is bringing it all together for our customers, from the revolutionary iPhone 3GS to next-generation TV services and sophisticated solutions for multi-national businesses.

For more than a century, we have consistently provided innovative, reliable, high-quality products and services and excellent customer care. Today, our mission is to connect people with their world, everywhere they live and work, and do it better than anyone else. We’re fulfilling this vision by creating new solutions for consumers and businesses and by driving innovation in the communications and entertainment industry.

We’re recognized as one of the leading worldwide providers of IP-based communications services to businesses. We also have the nation’s fastest 3G network and the largest international coverage of any U.S. wireless carrier, offering the most phones that work in the most countries; the largest Wi-Fi network in the United States; and the largest number of high speed Internet access subscribers in the United States.
