AT&T is expanding its wireless broadband efforts across North Carolina and seven other states, targeting rural and what it calls “underserved” areas.

The AT&T Fixed Wireless Internet service launched in Georgia this spring.

Prices start at $30 per month.

The offering includes download speeds of at least 10 gigabits per second. Installation of an AT&T outdoor antenna and indoor residential gateway are required. There is an additional $10 per 50 gigabit charge above the 160 GBs included in the monthly offering with a maximum charge of $200 a month.

Joining Georgia and North Carolina where the service is now available across more than 70,000 locations are:

Funding for the project comes through the FCC Connect America Fund. AT&T, CenturyLink, Frontier Communications and others are receiving funds from the FCC to help expand high-speed Internet connectivity.

AT&T plans to serve more than 400,000 locations before the end of this year and over 1.1 million by 2020. Arkansas, California, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Michigan, Ohio, Texas and Wisconsin will be added this year, the communication giant said in its announcement Monday.

“We’re committed to connect hard-to-reach locations to the internet. This changes lives and creates economic growth for these areas,” said Cheryl Choy, vice president, wired voice and internet products at AT&T. “We’re excited to bring this service to even more underserved locations.”
