AUGUST 21 -- AT&T Inc. (search for AT&T) has been selected to provide network services to 66 Federal Credit Union, a cooperative financial institution with headquarters in Bartlesville, OK.
Under the terms of the three-year contract, AT&T will serve as the primary network and data services provider to 66 Federal Credit Union and will integrate the company's multiprotocol label switching (MPLS)-based virtual private network (VPN) for an enhanced communications network between offices.
