AT&T Launches Operations in India in Partnership with Mahindra

AT&T Global Network Services India (AT&T India), a joint venture between AT&T and Mahindra Telecommunications Investment Private Ltd., launched commercial operations.

In November 2006, AT&T became the first foreign telecom operator to secure new telecommunications licenses under the Indian government's revised policy on foreign direct investment (FDI) which allows up to 74 percent foreign ownership.

AT&T said it now has access to MPLS-based IP services in 137 countries. In addition to obtaining telecommunications licenses in India in 2006, AT&T is expanding its global network reach further with the addition of network nodes in Malaysia, Vietnam, Pakistan, Cyprus, Dubai and Saudi Arabia, as well as new network interconnections giving greater reach to the Nordics, Russia, Brazil, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan.
