AT&T Expands Local Area Calling in Two Alabama Counties


Birmingham, Alabama - AT&T has announced that landline phone calls between Alabama cities Bay Minette and Mobile, Bay Minette and Fairhope, McIntosh and Mobile, and Mount Vernon and Citronelle will now be less expensive for AT&T and customers of former BellSouth. AT&T Corp. acquired BellSouth in late 2006 and is in the process of transitioning BellSouth customers to the AT&T brand.

In addition, calls between these locations can be dialed by using seven digits instead of the previous 10-digit requirement. Some residents, businesses and government offices may need to reprogram speed-dialing and call-forwarding features on their communication devices.

Calls between those locations have previously been billed on a per-minute basis or as IntraLATA toll calls.

“Mobile and Baldwin counties have long been working together as a region to promote economic development,” said Gigi Armbrecht, regional manager for AT&T. “In addition to the cost savings benefiting many of our customers, this plan will be one more way to facilitate communication and cooperation between the two counties.”

Customers were notified of the change in their March telephone bills.
