MORRISTOWN, NJ—(HISPANIC PR WIRE)–September 24, 2003–AT&T (NYSE:
T) today announced a unique enhancement to its AT&T AnyHour Advantage with
the introduction of “City Savings(SM).”  For $3.95 a month, AT&T’s
enhanced lead offer now provides consumers the ability to call 31 popular cities
in 12 countries at significant savings. 

This unique AT&T offer responds to consumers’ requests for innovative
offers to international destinations they call most.  With City Savings,
customers will enjoy discounted rates to select cities of up to 41 percent.

such as Monterrey or Mexico City.  With City Savings(sm), that customer
will pay only 10 cents per minute instead of the current country rate of 17
cents, a savings of 41 percent%.   Similarly, calls to select cities
in China and India will have low per-minute rates from 10 cents to 28 cents,
resulting in discounts of up to 33 percent.
