The new AT&T (again...)
Consumers will have a choice of signing up for a new package of cellphone and Internet service rather than just the traditional bundle of land-line phone and Internet service, the company says. Until now AT&T had worried about cannibalizing its land-line phone business. AT&T has also been testing cellphones that can run on Wi-Fi networks when at home, letting consumers save money on their cellphone bills and potentially get better reception indoors.
"The biggest asset we bought here was Cingular," said Mr. Whitacre. "We're about to become a company with wireless at its heart."
