AT&T is using fixed wireless to provide internet access to 400,000 locations by the end of 2017 and over 1.1 million locations by 2020. The service is now available in eight new states, AT&T says.
More than 70,000 locations can now use fixed wireless for internet access in underserved or unserved areas across nine original states.
The new states include Alabama Florida Kentucky Mississippi North Carolina South Carolina Tennessee and Louisiana.
AT&T further plans to launch fixed wireless service in additional states overall later in 2017. The additional states are Arkansas, California, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Michigan, Ohio, Texas and Wisconsin.
