AT&T Readies Enhanced Push To Talk

AT&T reports positive feedback from trial users of its forthcoming Enhanced Push to Talk (PTT) service. AT&T is now doubling the number of business PTT users who may participate in its free program. In addition, AT&T expects to offer a choice of up to five compatible smartphones, including multiple devices from Samsung, when Enhanced PTT is anticipated to be commercially available later this year.

CourierNet, an Atlanta-based courier company, is trialing AT&T Enhanced PTT with its team of more than 500 drivers and 75 dispatchers. A single CourierNet dispatcher often coordinates time-sensitive document and package deliveries with anywhere from 20 to 30 drivers at a time, so speed, prioritization and reliability are key when it comes to choosing the right technology for the job.
