Will AT&T reap the rewards of stimulus funding?

While AT&T cannot apply for federal stimulus funds directly, its size and its deep connection to government clients and agencies has it well-positioned to reap the rewards of billions of dollars in stimulus funding flowing from Washington. The company has teams assigned to every federal agency to understand how they are going to use stimulus funds and where AT&T can step in to help. Don Herring, senior vice president of AT&T Government Solutions, said that because the company can provide wireless, broadband, wireline and networking solutions, it is an ideal partner. "Agencies want one place to go, with one network and one carrier," he said.
