DALLAS, April 4, 2013

DALLAS, April 4, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --AT&T^1 today announced that the leading
analyst firm Gartner, Inc. has once again positioned AT&T in the Leaders
Quadrant of its latest "Magic Quadrant for Global Network Service Providers"^2
report.

This magic quadrant report assesses suppliers that can deliver fixed
enterprise networking services worldwide. The emphasis is on a vendor's
service quality, pricing and track record, noting that these elements are
particularly important for global networks, because the issues of
infrastructure, language and cultural problems become more complicated and
prolonged than when applicable to only one country.

Suppliers in the leaders quadrant have a full portfolio of voice and data
products, coupled with above-average services and support, wide global
coverage and competitive pricing. They have a strong vision that includes
adopting more information and communication technology (ICT) capabilities,
which is a strategy they can articulate clearly and openly.

^1AT&T products and services are provided or offered by subsidiaries and
affiliates of AT&T Inc. under the AT&T brand and not by AT&T Inc.
