With AT&T® Fixed Wireless Internet, the respective subscribers of the Telco can browse as well as stream videos in the best internet speeds. As part of their FCC Connect America Fund Commitment AT&T® launched their Fixed Wireless Internet service earlier this year, which deploys internet with up to 10 Mbps speed to both underserved residents and businesses.
The service from AT&T® is routed from a cellular tower to an antenna affixed to the subscribers’ residents or business locations. AT&T® Fixed Wireless Internet is going places and has been expanding nationwide. Now, the service has been upgraded by the Telco in more regions of Alabama, including Autauga, Blount, Coosa, Greene, and Lauderdale.
“In today’s economy, access to high-speed internet is an integral part of our infrastructure foundation,” said Kay Ivey, Governor of Alabama. “I am excited to see AT&T’s continued investment and innovation bringing enhanced connectivity to rural communities across Alabama. Every day we are letting the world know Alabama is open for business.”
Phillis Belcher, Executive Director of Greene County Industrial Development Authority said, “I am thankful for the leadership of our elected officials who work to ensure a pro-consumer business environment and am delighted many rural residents in parts of over 25 Alabama counties already have access to this innovative technology.”
Wayne Hutchens, Alabama Assistant VP of Legislative and External Affairs at AT&T® said, “The more than 5,200 men and women who work for AT&T® and call Alabama home are proud to work with our local, state and federal leadership to provide the connectivity Alabama’s residents and businesses demand. Through this innovative service, we are helping close the connectivity gap in Alabama.”
AT&T® officials said that they would keep making the region-specific announcements in Alabama in the coming months and would give notifications regarding more availability of Fixed Wireless Internet just as the network expands in the state. Apart from Alabama, AT&T® has launched the best internet service in California, Georgia, Kansas, Louisiana, and many other states in the US.
As part of the wider expansion nationwide, AT&T® plans to reach more than 400,000 regions by the year-end and more than 1.1 million regions by the year 2020. Considering Alabama alone, the Telco plans to reach more than 26,000 regions by the year-end and about 66,000 regions by the year 2020.
