AT&T nabs satellite contract

The Federal Technology Service has awarded its eighth and final satellite service contract to AT&T Corp. for broadband distance-learning services and equipment.

The current round of satellite contracts awarded by the General Services Administration office follows a previous series. The new round was prompted by demands from the Government Alliance for Training and Education, which sought broadband services not available through the earlier contracts. FTS also set longer-term deals and gained access to new technologies.

The AT&T contract has a base period of one year, with four one-year options.
