AT&T alters structure with wireless, convergence in mind

AT&T made some structural and management changes to re-align the company for a future in which wireless increasingly replaces landline, and fixed-mobile convergence capabilities and multi-screen strategies become key. The company is moving to a structure of four divisions -- consumer, business, infrastructure and diversified businesses. AT&T Wireless chief Ralph de la Vega will lead the consumer effort, which includes wireless, landline, Internet and TV responsibilities.
