AT&T Expands 5G Home Internet to More Than a Dozen Markets




, ,

AT&T is playing catch-up when it comes to the 5G home internet game, but it’s slowly picking up the pace. Earlier this month, the telecommunications giant said it brought its AT&T Internet Air service to 13 new markets.

While Verizon and T-Mobile have established presences in large swaths of the country for 5G home internet, AT&T has just gotten started, having launched in a few test markets earlier this year before making its initial big expansion in August. For years, the company had bet on upgrading its area with faster fiber-optic lines, but has finally tapped into the growing interest in 5G home service.

This expansion marks the third group of markets to get Internet Air. Consumers have increasingly gravitated towards 5G home internet because of the simplistic price, which is competitive with cable, and the easy self-installation process. AT&T also sees it as a faster alternative to its old DSL service.

Here are the new markets that now have AT&T Internet Air:

  • Albany, New York
  • Bakersfield, California 
  • Charleston, West Virginia 
  • Columbus, Ohio
  • Houston, Texas
  • Kansas City, Missouri
  • Miami, Florida
  • Norfolk-Portsmouth-Newport, Virginia 
  • Rochester, New York
  • Sacramento-Stockton-Modesto, California 
  • St. Louis, Missouri
  • Wilkes Barre, Pennsylvania
  • Youngstown, Ohio

Customers on the Affordable Connectivity Program are also eligible to get a $30-a-month credit off of the service (or $75 a month on qualifying Tribal lands).

In October, AT&T reported adding 25,000 5G home internet service customers, a decent number considering it expanded in August, which meant it garnered that number in a little more than a month. CEO John Stankey noted the strong growth seen in the area, but said he remains confident that fiber will be the ultimately way to connect its customers.
