AT&t has said it will roll out a mobile-first food delivery plan, a move that comes amid growing concerns over food delivery and its potential to disrupt the market for traditional delivery services.
In a letter to customers, AT&tt said it would “move to a new, more mobile approach” to delivering food in order to keep up with the “growing demand” for food.
It said it is also moving to make it easier to accept and process food orders.
In addition, AT &tt said that its customers will be able to pay for food with a new payment system that is “much more convenient and more efficient.”
AT&ts move follows a similar move by Apple, which has rolled out a similar service in several countries.
The move comes as food delivery continues to be a hot topic in many U.S. cities, where the cost of delivery is one of the main reasons consumers give for choosing an option.
AT& t has not said when it plans to roll out the service.
It also said it has no plans to expand food delivery to other regions, such as New York.
Apple launched its own delivery service in San Francisco in late December, and it recently launched a similar option in New York City.
However, it has not yet offered a similar food delivery system to customers in the U.K. or the U, which it currently offers.
AT & t said it does not expect the launch of its new food delivery product to affect its food delivery business.
“We are not announcing any specific plans to introduce our food delivery products in other regions,” said Brian Wysocki, AT.
“But, we have been investing heavily in building a robust food delivery ecosystem that provides an important part of our food deliveries business.”
