AT&T Fixed Wireless Internet is now available in parts of Gallia County for rural homes and small businesses that may have limited or no access to internet.
These locations are included in the locations in Ohio to which AT&T has extended Fixed Wireless Internet as part of its FCC Connect America Fund commitment.
In August 2015, AT&T accepted about $427 million per year in Federal Connect America Fund Phase II (CAFII) support for each of the next 6 years. These funds will be used in 18 states for deploying, maintaining and offering internet access and voice service in FCC-identified census blocks located within AT&T’s traditional exchange areas.
From 2015-2020, AT&T Ohio will have received more than $88 million in CAF II to offer internet access to more than 37,000 mostly rural homes and small businesses that may have limited or no access to internet.
“It’s no secret that ensuring internet access for all of our citizens can be challenging,” said State Rep. Ryan Smith, who joined us in Gallipolis for the Fixed Wireless Internet announcement. “Fortunately, with this news from AT&T, more homes and businesses will be connected, which will benefit job growth, commercial opportunities and education.”
With this initial offering, Fixed Wireless Internet is available today in parts of rural communities throughout Ohio. For more information on Fixed Wireless Internet from AT&T, visit att.com/internet/fixed-wireless.html or call 877-990-0041.
