    AT&T Continues to Expand Wireless Coverage in West Florida

    Company Activates Two Cell Sites in Hillsborough and Pasco Counties

    Orlando, Florida, November 26, 2007

    AT&T Inc. (NYSE:T) announced today the activation of two new cell sites in Hillsborough and Pasco counties.

    A new cell site located near the intersection of West Waters Avenue and Hanley Road in Hillsborough County is increasing coverage and capacity to the residential area northwest of downtown Tampa. In Pasco County, a new site located near U.S. 19 and Alternate 19 is providing additional coverage to the town of Holiday and northern parts of Tarpon Springs.

    "Providing our customers with the best wireless experience, including superior network coverage, is top priority for AT&T," said Rudy Hermond, vice president and general manager for AT&T's West, Central and North Florida wireless operations. "We are continually expanding and improving our network for our customers."

    The new Hillsborough and Pasco cell sites are part of AT&T's $133 million investment in its Florida wireless network this year. The company has invested more than $800 million in the Florida wireless network since 2005 to improve coverage and expand its 3G footprint. AT&T rolled out 3G in Tampa last fall and plans to expand its 3G coverage to the Fort Myers and Naples areas in 2008.

    AT&T's 3G wireless broadband network delivers typical download speeds ranging from 600 to 1,400 Kbps. The high speed network makes it possible for customers to use advanced, on-the-go wireless services such as Video Share, which allows users to share live video during a wireless call; CV, a video-clips-on-demand service; and AT&T Mobile Music, the most comprehensive wireless music offering in the industry. AT&T provides 3G services in more than 200 major U.S. metropolitan areas, with plans to expand to additional markets by the end of the year.

    "This expansion is evidence of our ongoing commitment to investing in the state of Florida," said Marshall Criser III, president of AT&T Florida. "The investments by AT&T will have a positive impact at both the state and community levels, in addition to the benefits that our customers will receive."
