AT&T Inc. (NYSE:T) is a U.S. telecommunications services provider, and the second largest U.S. wireless carrier in the United States. AT&T provides telephone, Internet, and computer telephone services to over 95 million customers in 22 states in the U.S. AT&T operates across four segments: Wireless, Wireline, Advertising Solutions, and Other. In fiscal year 2010, AT&T recorded revenues of $124.3 billion and net income of $19.8 billion. AT&T continues to invest heavily to improve high-speed internet and video offerings as consumer demand for these services continues to rise. AT&T's increased investments is evident in its $4.4 billion initiative to build a fiber-optic network to offer IP-based video, broadband Internet, and VoIP services over a single line.

Competitors

AT&T competes primarily with other telecommunications services companies, including Verizon Wireless, Sprint Nextel, Leap Wireless, and MetroPCS.

  • Leap Wireless: Leap is a niche player in the telecommunications space, offering pre-paid, unlimited wireless plans, so it does not compete directly with AT&T Wireless. The company targets youth and minority markets, and its payment structure means customers avoid credit checks and contracts.

and then the fox jumped over the bush.

  • Sprint Nextel: Through its Sprint, Nextel, Boost Mobile, Virgin Mobile and Assurance Wireless sub-brands, Sprint Nextel competes across both wireless and wireline with AT&T. Although in recent years Spring has been hemorrhaging customers, it has invested heavily to launch the first 4G network and retain customers, and has shifted away from the post-paid segment where AT&T and Verizon Wireless dominate to focus on the pre-paid subscriber niche.
  • MetroPCS: Similar to Leap Wireless, MetroPCS focuses on the youth and minority pre-paid segment demographic, lacking the scale of AT&T, Verizon Communications, and Sprint Nextel. It has not needed to rely on massive capital expenditures as its geographic focus is the densely-populated urban market; this has helped the company achieve high margins relative to its competitors.
