AT&T Springs Into the Season and Introduces Lower Wi-Fi Connection Costs at Popular Ohio Venues

San Antonio, Apr. 24, 2006 — Just in time for weekend getaways and entertainment events as thousands embrace spring’s return, AT&T Inc. (NYSE: T) today announced a new hot offer for high speed Internet users in Ohio — a limited-time only Wi-Fi (high speed wireless Internet) hot spot connection fee for only $3.95 for a two-hour session at Cleveland Hopkins International Airport, Quicken Loans Arena and multiple hot spots along the Ohio Turnpike.

As one of the nation’s largest Wi-Fi networks available to AT&T Yahoo! High Speed Internet customers, AT&T Remote Access enterprise customers and others who do not have AT&T services but simply need a Wi-Fi connection when on the go, AT&T Wi-Fi service is designed to enhance today’s high speed Internet experience and to accommodate communications needs beyond the office and the home. “The popularity of mobile communications continues to be a clear industry trend,” Kevin Petersen, AT&T general manager. “And with more and more customers relying on a high speed Internet connection on a regular basis, it’s important for AT&T to meet this expectation and deliver a consistent communications experience wherever our customers may be.”

Customers at Quicken Loans Arena can access AT&T Wi-Fi service throughout much of the venue, including Gordon's Sports Bar, the food court, Bridges at The Q restaurant and other portions of the arena bowl. Service is available at Terminals A, B, C, D and the food court area at Cleveland Hopkins International Airport as well as in the concession, fueling and parking areas of 10 service plazas along the Ohio Turnpike.

Available for only $1.99 a month for customers who bundle AT&T Wi-Fi with their AT&T Yahoo! High Speed Internet, customers can expand the value of their high speed Internet connection to include nearly 11,000 AT&T Wi-Fi locations nationwide, including Ohio hot spots.

To accommodate customers on the go who may not already have AT&T services, monthly AT&T Wi-Fi memberships are available to any consumer for $19.95 a month and provide unlimited access to thousands of AT&T Wi-Fi hot spots, including select McDonald’s restaurants; The UPS Store® and Mail Boxes Etc.®; coffee shops, such as Caribou Coffee; and Avis rental car locations. (See details below.)

The AT&T Wi-Fi service allows customers to use laptop computers and personal digital assistants (PDAs) to wirelessly connect to the Internet and corporate networks at speeds of up to 50 to 100 times faster than a dial-up connection.
