AT&T targets India

Last year, AT&T was the first foreign carrier to win a long-distance license in India. Earlier this year, it began operations there under the brand AT&T Global Network Services India, a joint venture with an Indian investment firm. Earlier this summer, one of the first trips Randall Stephenson took as the new CEO of AT&T was to the Asia-Pacific Regional Advisory Council meeting in India.

All of this is adding up to a new major push AT&T is making in the region. It's so far focusing mostly on wireline business customers, but expect to hear more about a broader strategy from AT&T at some point as competition in India continues to be tough.
