AT&T - An American telecommunications giant
Established in 1885, American Telephone and Telegraph Company (AT&T) initially started out as a subsidiary of the Bell Telephone Company - founded by Alexander Graham Bell after he invented the telephone. It became the main company in 1899 after acquiring The Bell company for legal reasons. By establishing a web of subsidiary companies across the United States it established a large entity, known as Bell System, which lasted for most of the 20th Century. In 1984, in agreement with the U.S department of Justice, AT&T divided the company and turned it's regional subsidiaries into individual companies whilst retaining its long distance operations. SBC Communications was born out of this division and it went on to acquire several other companies such as the Metromedia mobile business in 1987. In 2005 SBC purchased AT&T and adopted its name and brand, the original AT&T is now the long distance phone subsidiary. It is now the 14th largest company in the world and the seventh in the United States.
