San Antonio, Texas.-Demonstrating its position as a leading provider of wired and wireless networked business solutions, AT&T Inc. (NYSE:T) today announced the immediate availability of the AT&T U-verseSM platform for high-speed Internet access to small businesses in more than 40 U.S. markets.

AT&T High Speed Internet U-verse Enabled Business Edition offers download speeds up to 10 Mbps, which, depending on the applications needed, can serve up to 32 Internet access connections over existing telephone wiring in the customer’s business.

AT&T Business U-verse also provides free unlimited access to the company’s nationwide Wi-Fi network, the largest in the United States, to small business subscribers. The network comprises more than 17,000 Wi-Fi hot spots nationwide, which includes expansion into more than 7,000 U.S. company-operated Starbucks locations, allowing businesses to stay connected from almost anywhere — whether they’re in the office or on the road.

In addition, AT&T Business U-verse, which uses advanced, fiber-based Internet Protocol (IP) infrastructure to deliver high speed wired and wireless connectivity, offers subscribers virtually unlimited e-mail storage and powerful online protection packages, including anti-spyware, anti-virus, pop-up blocker and SpamGuard Plus.

AT&T Business U-verse also features wireless office networking at no additional charge, giving users the freedom to receive and send large data files, view streaming video and access other high-bandwidth applications by using a wireless-enabled laptop or other device.

“Today’s small businesses need velocity to better serve their customers, stay ahead of their competitors and continue moving forward,” said Roman Pacewicz, senior vice president, AT&T Regional Business Marketing. “Our new Business U-verse provides outstanding connectivity at a great price for small businesses by offering higher speeds than ever before.”

Among the markets with AT&T Business U-verse availability are portions of Los Angeles; Sacramento, San Diego; the Bay Area, Riverside, San Bernardino and Carlsbad, Calif.; Hartford, Stamford and New Haven, Conn.; Atlanta, Ga; Anderson, Bloomington, Indianapolis and Muncie, Ind.; Northeastern Illinois; Kansas City and St. Louis, Mo.; Detroit, Mich; Cleveland, Akron and Columbus, Ohio; Oklahoma City, Okla.; Austin, Dallas, Fort Worth, Houston and San Antonio, Texas; and Milwaukee and Racine, Wis.

AT&T Business U-verse service will be made available to businesses in additional markets within AT&T’s 22-state local service footprint over the coming months. AT&T is the largest provider of broadband service in the United States, with more than 14 million customers.

The company offers several cost-effective tiers for AT&T Business U-verse, ranging from as little as $40 a month up to $100 a month, depending on the downstream speed. The AT&T Business U-verse network also expands the company’s footprint of business-class broadband availability, so more customers can access AT&T High Speed Internet services.

At this time, AT&T is waiving installation charges for AT&T Business U-verse — a $95 value. The wireless-enabled equipment also comes with four Ethernet ports, a USB port for direct connection and AT&T’s two-tier firewall.
