April 27, 2007
HONG KONG -- AT&T Inc. (NYSE: T - News) today announced the opening of an office in the city of Shenzhen, China, in order to further strengthen sales support and customer care services to the increasing number of multinational enterprise customers in the southern region of China. The new office will join AT&T's three other offices in Beijing, Shanghai and Guangzhou in mainland China to provide customers with services to meet the growing need for advanced enterprise communications services in China.
"China is one of the fastest growing and most exciting telecom markets in the world and we will continue to invest in and grow our operations in the country," said Sainti Li, AT&T Greater China general manager. "The new Shenzhen office is further demonstration of our commitment to global customers in China and our determination to providing them with a consistent set of services offering high levels of quality and reliability wherever they do business."
AT&T has been providing communications services to China for more than 20 years. With the network interconnections agreements with China Telecom and China Netcom, AT&T has national coverage in more than 135 cities, serving more than 300 multinational customers in China. The significance of the Shenzhen office is that it enables AT&T to leverage business opportunities presented by the growing number of multinational customers expanding into the China market, as well as the emerging trend for Chinese companies to globalize their operations. The new office in Shenzhen will continue to provide the customers with AT&T's key enterprise networking solutions, including Virtual Private Network Services, Virtual Private Network Tunneling Services and Remote Access Services.
In addition, AT&T is the first foreign telecom company to establish a Sino-foreign telecom services joint venture in China.

The three companies signed the official joint venture agreement on December 5, 2000 and UNISITI received permission to operate from March 2001.
