Gartner Positions AT&T in Global Network Service Providers Leaders Quadrant for Ninth Consecutive Year

DALLAS, 4 APRIL 2013 – AT&T1 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.
