StarTek's largest customer until October 2004 was AT&T Wireless Services, Inc. When AT&T's wireless service was purchased by SBC Communications it was merged with SBC's Cingular Wireless brand and StarTek began working under that brand. In late 2005 SBC merged with AT&T Corp. and SBC took on the AT&T name. When SBC (now as AT&T Inc.) merged with Bell South it became the majority owner of Cingular Wireless. In an effort to re-brand Cingular it was relaunched in early 2007 as AT&T. Once again, StarTek found its largest customer to be AT&T.
