Through this account the employees and students of the partners receive discounts on their monthly AT&T service. Discounts can range from 7 to 30 percent, depending on the partnership agreement. If you are an AT&T customer you may receive these discounts through a FAN account. Qualifying for these discounts requires that you complete a validation process.
