1. About AT&T Inc.

    AT&T; Inc. (T) is the largest provider of both local and long distance telephone services, wireless service, and DSL Internet access in the United States. Formerly SBC Communications, Inc., the company shed its name and took on the iconic AT&T; moniker and the T stock-trading symbol (for "telephone") after its acquisition of American Telephone & Telegraph Company (later known as AT&T; Corporation).

    The new AT&T; includes eleven Bell Operating Companies, and the long distance division. While it reconstitutes much of the original parent company, the new AT&T; Inc. lacks the vertical integration of the historic AT&T; Corp. which prompted the antitrust suit and breakup in 1984.

A hospital can download a 500 megabyte digital X-ray in 40 seconds with Metro Ethernet, a file that would take 44 minutes to download with a slower connection, said Jennifer Khoury, a Comcast spokeswoman.
