AT&T was awarded a contract worth up to $74.6 million over five years, if all options are exercised, from the Defense Information Systems Agency. The company will provide secure telecom services that support U.S. senior leadership communications between select Department of Defense aircraft and ground stations across the continental U.S. and around the world.

AT&T will provide long-haul telecommunications and related transmission circuits. These support the government’s restricted-use, ultra-high frequency communications platform.
