AT&T is continuing to roll out its new wireless home Internet service in rural areas that typically have just dialup or satellite Internet as an option.
AT&T says its new fixed wireless Internet service will offer speeds of at least 10 Mbps down with up speeds of at least 1 Mbps. The service does have a 160 GB data cap that may seem low to many current broadband customers, but if you are used to the limitations of satellite Internet this is not a bad deal at all.
“Closing the connectivity gap is a top priority for us,” said Cheryl Choy, vice president, wired voice and internet products at AT&T. “Access to fast and reliable internet is a game changer in today’s world. This service will bring countless opportunities for more customers in underserved rural locations.”
The following are the states that AT&T is rolling out the new wireless home Internet:
AT&T plans to continue rolling out its new wireless home Internet to over 1.1 million locations by 2020.
“For many rural families and communities, the introduction of this service from AT&T will mark a new era of increased broadband speeds and access to cheaper and more diverse content,” said Bret Swanson, president, Entropy Economics. “AT&T’s move into these new communities will also yield additional economic benefits and can help create new jobs.”
