You don't need to be an AT&T Internet service subscriber but you do need to subscribe to AT&T's managed MPLS network, Gattamneni,clarifies in follow up message, That allows VPN to be built from customer site to closest AT&T MPLS net switching center, with customer data moving from there over AT&T private line to Azure.

Charlie, I suppose they wouldn't disclose pricing?! Seems like companies should just suck it up and encrypt everything before sending it offsite. Spend the money on key management.

Would an enterprise have to contract with AT&T as its Internet provider to access this service?
