AT&T is offering a bunch of Voice over Internet Protocol services to business customers.

The network-based service is aimed at enterprise customers with remote locations and smaller businesses.

The company is launching voice services immediately and will offer conferencing and messaging shortly. Startups like Skype and tech companies like AOL have been quick to embrace the technology. Skype claims 100m downloads of its software which allows Voip calls.

AT&T’s service, branded DNA, will be rolled out to a limited number of customers in the next few months before a wider roll-out.

There will be a choice of payment plans for the new service.

Residential VoIP users in the US will grow from three million today to 27m by the end of 2009, IDC, the tech analyst firm, forecasts.

AT&T says the service will follow standards and work with various IP phones including some models from Cisco and Polycomm.
