AT&T will spend $1 billion this year to push out its enterprise access and utility computing services internationally. The money will go toward a new undersea cable to Japan and Asia, investments in cables running to the Caribbean, Puerto Rico and the Middle East. It plans to add DSL service in four countries, enhanced Ethernet in 14 cities, and 180,000 square feet to its 38 existing data centers worldwide. Enterprise growth for the carrier was 1.8 percent in the fourth quarter of 2007, but data services such as VPN and enterprise IP services grew at rates of 31 percent and 21 percent respectively.
