(1995- 2005) AT&T Corporation (1895-2005) it is a telecommunications Industry lead by Founder Key Person Randall Stephenson ( Chairman & CEO) ( AT&T – Wikipedia , the free encyclopedia) AT&T is the second largest provider of mobile telephone and the largest provider of fixed telephone in the united states and also provides broadband subscription television services. AT&T is the third – Largest company in TEXAS. AT&T can trace its origin back to the original Bell Telephone Company founded by Alexander Graham Bell after his invention of the telephone.
