The article reports on the bundling services provided by AT&T which includes Cingular Wireless services with high-speed Internet, video and wireline phone services in the U.S. According to analyst Andy Castonguay, the discounts offered by bundling will decrease carriers' revenues. Despite promised savings, consumers will look for network coverage, handset choices and services. The company and Cingular collaborated with Yahoo Inc. and Nokia Corp. to offer the Yahoo! Go Mobile service on Nokia 6682 handsets.
