AT&T has acknoweldged that it is holding talks with IBM to acquire the latter's Global Network operation.

Last month, it was reported that IBM had approached a number of possible buyers for its Global Network, which transmits corporate data for 30,000 customers in 900 locations.
IBM has hired Merril Lynch to find a purchaser, and will only consider a company with sufficent experience to handle the running of a global network, as it wants to lease the network from the buyer and provide other services to existing customers, such as Web hosting, electronic commerce, and messaging.P> The fixed site price option allows customers with a fully managed service for worldwide connectivity at one monthly price per site, allowing them to establish connections to as many network locations as they need at a set price.
