Les PTT offrent un certain nombre de services de transmission de données. Ils peuvent être fondés sur l'utilisation de réseaux existants développés pour d'autres services: réseau téléphonique commuté et, pour une part plus faible, réseau télex. Ils peuvent mettre en œuvre des réseaux spécifiques comme le réseau Transpac, Caducée ou encore Transmic.
