I searched and didn't see this posted. Please let me know if this is a repost. AT&T is offering internet called "Fixed Wireless Internet." The service is provided from cell towers and transmits to a small dish that AT&T will install on your property. The reason for YMMV in the title is because the service may not be available in all areas. This is not a mobile unit, hence the name fixed wireless internet. This is a decent plan for anyone who is currently using a satellite internet company. It is much more affordable and includes much more data per month than most satellite internet companies. I ordered mine today. I have been using a similar local service and getting only 6 mbps speeds (or less) for $35 per month. AT&T says there will be at least a 10 mbps speed or more. The cost is $60 per month for standalone service. If you have Directv, and/or AT&T wireless, you can combine the bill and get it for $50 per month. The data cap is 170 GB per month. Overages are billed at $10 for each additional 50 GB (up to $200) per month. HOWEVER…if you sign up before 10/1/18, they will double the data. That makes it 340 GB per month. Please do not criticize. This is merely a post to help those who, like myself, live in rural areas that have limited options for internet service.
They also have a plan for $85 that includes the fixed wireless internet and Directv.
Here is the fine print:
