AT&T launches wireless-wireline bundle for small businesses

AT&T launched a bundled service for small businesses that combines wireless service, Internet and WiFi service and traditional landline voice service for under $100 per month.

The carrier said the services will be available to small businesses that have one to four lines in a single location, and that the services will come in a single bill. The plan includes 450 wireless minutes per month per wireless device, support for up to 11 email accounts, access to AT&T WiFi hotspots and unlimited local and long distance wireline service.

However, there is a caveat: To qualify for the plan, customers must already have wireless service or purchase new wireless service from AT&T, on top of new or existing local voice, long-distance voice and broadband services.

AT&T is touting the offer as the first in the industry to offer bundled wireless, Internet and wireline services to small businesses. In a  release, the carrier noted that, according to the research firm In-Stat, small businesses with between one and four employees spent nearly $17 billion last year on wireless, broadband and local and long-distance voice services and equipment.
