AT&T’s wireless home Internet, with 160GB cap, is now in 18 states – Ars Technica

AT&T has brought wireless home Internet to nine more states, offering rural and underserved customers a slightly faster replacement for old DSL lines.

“Our Fixed Wireless Internet service delivers a home Internet connection with download speeds of at least 10Mbps and upload speeds of at least 1Mbps,” AT&T said in an announcement yesterday. “The connection comes from a wireless tower to a fixed antenna on customers’ homes or businesses. This is an efficient way to deliver high-quality, high-speed Internet to customers living in underserved rural areas.”

The service is newly available in parts of Arkansas, California, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Michigan, Ohio, Texas, and Wisconsin. The wireless Internet had already become available earlier this year in parts of nine other states, namely Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Tennessee. These account for 18 of the 21 states in AT&T’s wireline territory.
