AT&T Broadband was the name of AT&T's cable operations, which were composed of the assets of TCI and MediaOne, as well as two Comcast cable systems (Sacramento, California and northern DeKalb County, Georgia) AT&T acquired later in a system swap. Formed in 1999, AT&T Broadband was the largest provider of cable television services. Media and online services for AT&T Broadband customers were originally provided by either RoadRunner or Excite@Home.

AT&T went through a corporate restructuring process in 2001, which called for AT&T Wireless, AT&T Business, AT&T Consumer, and AT&T Broadband all to become separate companies. Only AT&T Wireless was spun off, and AT&T Broadband was purchased by Comcast in 2002. Since then, AT&T has used Dish Network as its cable provider when not providing its U-Verse IPTV service.
