AT&T sees 20% revenue growth in Asia

Specific countries like India and China are at the top of the list of the money-makers, having grown by 40% and 30% respectively in 2006. That's got to be a nice departure from the lowering margins its home market offers. Sometime in the future, instead of describing domestic wireless and broadband as the its top growth engines, maybe AT&T will be citing Asia-Pac.
