AT&T Will be the Largest Wireless ISP in the United States
Is AT&T about to become the nation's biggest fixed wireless ISP? It appears AT&T might well take that mantle, assuming AT&T’s acqusition of DirecTV is approved.
Buried in a filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission is this interesting promise: “the combined company will commit to deploy fixed wireless local loop (“WLL”) technology to bring high-speed broadband to approximately 13 million largely rural customer locations.”
AT&T expects the fixed wireless service will provide downstream speeds between 15 Mbps and 20 Mbps.
