What Exactly Does PTA Refer To?

I see a data use for "pta" on my bill, and I know it is for data, but exactly what kind?  E-mail? Or other?  How can I find out exactly what this data is being used for?

If you're wondering what an access point is…

 

Think of it as a computer operated by AT&T that your phone connects to let you go online (and bill you accordingly).

 

Now imagine the computer is called "pta."
