AT&T is an American multinational company based out of Dallas, Texas. It is the world’s largest telecommunications company.

They provide communication services to retail as well as commercial customers. The Turner component operates basic television networks, while the Home Box Office (HBO) works on premium pay networks. Warner Bros. is responsible for producing feature films, television shows, and video games. Warnermedia accounts for almost 11% of AT&T’s total revenue. AT&T’s Communications segment is its largest, accounting for 84% of the total revenue.

Xandr is their smallest segment and deals with advertisement and they also provide their services in Latin America. Thus AT&T has diversified itself into different sectors.
