    This is:

    https://www.business.att.com/product...-internet.html

    Fixed Wireless was only deployed in "some" CAF-II areas, and that's it. most people will not be able to get it.

    This shows on the business site, but on "normie/residential" you have to go through a checkout process and it's the same plan, and that's what's erroring out for me to show the plan.

    https://www.att.com/support/article/wireless/KM1048698/

    It's also listed in the table for the postpaid options..

    AT&T Wireless Internet

    50GB of data plus talk (unlimited nationwide calling): $60 per month

    100GB of data plus talk (unlimited nationwide calling): $100 per month

    Overage: $25 for 10GB on the 50GB and 100GB plans

    In the news today.

    PC Magazine published an article with maps of the zip codes where this is supposed to be available in theory. It does not mean that it is available at every address in the zip code, but it is more than Verizon is giving us.

    Everywhere I've checked so far for family members stuck on 10Mbps or less CenturyLink DSL in Ohio, it's not been available for any of them. But I'm not surprised as all of the locations I've checked are primarily 700/850MHz LTE and AWS/PCS is a few miles away easily.

    CenturyLink will no longer allow new DSL connections in my rural Arizona area since it's old copper wire and they're now only doing areas served by fiber. There are NO addresses in my zip code, which is on Verizon's list, that come up available. (it's very rural, I know all the occupied addresses). I get bands 2,4,5 and 13 on my Verizon cell phone.
    As usual, cart before the horse for Verizon.

    CenturyLink luckily got CAFII projects done at the places i've checked and all are now on 10/1 VDSL2 (fiber backed) except one who's still stuck on an old 512/128 line that's absolutely trash because the DSLAM is just a bunch of bonded T1 lines for backhaul.

    CenturyLink in the midwest is 100x worse than I dealt with in AZ. At least US-West/Qwest *tried* in places with population. Most of CL in Ohio is still max 10/1 ADSL2... even in the city.

    But even fixed LTE would be better than the capped 10/1 CenturyLink rolled out in CAFII areas. What sucks is they seem to cap those mini DSLAM to 10/1 even on bonded tiers where the line specs show 25/5 or 40/3 would work just fine. I'm hoping they fix that at some point.

    Re: CenturyLink in the midwest

    They offer 12/1 for $45/mo across my entire city. A few select high-end apartments are wired with their Gigabit service- but I don't know anyone dumb enough to live in those. Charter Spectrum offers 100/10 for $45/mo for a year which becomes $65/mo... you can bump up $20 for 400/20, then another $20 for 945/35.

    At one of my grandparents' house, CenturyLink offers 3/1. It's their only wireline option and I find AT&T to be a multitude times faster, but there are limits with that.

    At my other grandparents' house, they don't offer any type of wireline beyond POTS. So she's stuck with the unlimited depri Verizon hotspot on a 7730L that doesn't work for most of the day even after upgrading the site from 4/13 to 2/4/5/13/66/66. They're both in far more rural parts than where I live.

    CenturyLink is absolutely pathetic and Verizon doesn't offer their home internet to any ZIP code near me.

    When I lived in Phoenix.. they were actually decent. I had 140Mbps via bonded service and it was solid.

    Well we are talking rural and I guess that's my type of line. I was lucky to get 1 mbps and averaged maybe 600 kbps on my rural CenturyLink DSL.
    I got a Verizon 8800L hotspot on their 16GB (then throttled unlimited) prepaid plan $50mo. I don't do much steaming and 16G is plenty for me. It's cheaper then my DSL was and gets about 20 mbps (about 5 miles from the tower). Dumped the DSL. I doubt Verizon's Fixed Internet would offer me more then my hotspot other then unlimited high speed data (which is nice but not needed by me); plus the hotspot plan is cheaper then the fixed. The value of so called fixed seems to be the unlimited data if you need it; otherwise it's the same as a hotspot device which at least is portable.
