    AT&T continued to roll out its fixed wireless offering for rural and underserved locations, adding locations in nine new states.

    The service, which is branded AT&T Fixed Wireless Internet, is now available to residents and small businesses in parts of Arkansas, California, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Michigan, Ohio, Texas and Wisconsin. The offering*initially launched in Georgia four months ago and is now available across 160,000 locations in 18 states.

    “Closing the connectivity gap is a top priority for us,” said Cheryl Choy, vice president of wired voice and internet products at AT&T, in a press release. “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 service is part of AT&T’s participation in the FCC's Connect America Fund Phase II (CAF-II). AT&T, Verizon and eight other carriers accepted a total of $1.5 billion in late 2015 in the second phase of that initiative, which aims to bring broadband service to an estimated 23 million Americans in rural areas.

    The carrier said it plans to provide access to over 400,000 locations by the end of this year, and more than 1.1 million locations by 2020. The service includes 160 GB of data per month, with additional data available at $10 per GB up to a maximum of $200 a month. Customers must have an AT&T-provided outdoor antenna and the carrier’s indoor residential gateway, and additional buckets of 50 GB of data are available for $10 each up to a maximum of $200 a month.

    “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 of*Entropy Economics. "AT&T's move into these new communities will also yield additional economic benefits and can help create new jobs.”
    “The Internet wasn’t meant to be metered in bits and bytes, so it’s insane that wireless companies are still making you buy it this way. The rate plan is dead — it’s a fossil from a time when wireless was metered by every call or text.” John Legere 1/5/2017
