<communications, company> (PTT) One of the many national
bodies responsible for providing communications services in a
particular country. Traditionally, PTTs had monopolies in
their respective countries. This monopoly was first broken in

of the world.
Well-known PTTs include MCI, AT&T, and British Telecom.
