AT&T, Microsoft join for Net access

The heavyweights join forces to distribute Internet Explorer and access software.

AT&T and Microsoft today announced a pact to jointly distribute Internet access software.

Beginning this year, Microsoft will include software to access AT&T's WorldNet Service Internet access network as part of the Windows 95 software preloaded onto PCs. The AT&T software will also be included in future retail versions of Windows 95, Microsoft said.

AT&T agreed to offer Microsoft's Internet Explorer 3.0 Web browser to its WorldNet Service customers beginning this fall. AT&T now distributes Netscape Communications' Navigator Web browser with the service and will offer both browsers to customers.
