AT&T is Now Offering Fixed Wireless Internet Service to Rural Portions of 18 States, Including Parts of DeSoto Parish in Louisiana
AT&T* Fixed Wireless Internet1 for rural and underserved locations is now available to residents and small businesses in parts of DeSoto Parish.
This rollout, now in 18 states, began in 2017. The company now offers Fixed Wireless Internet to over 440,000 locations across 18 states with plans to provide access to over 1.1 million locations by the end of 2020.
State Representative Larry Bagley said, “Whether it’s small business, agriculture, education or health care, having robust internet services is a growing need, especially in rural areas. That’s why I applaud AT&T for their work in bringing more access across Louisiana so people and businesses can have the technology they need to grow and succeed.”
Grand Cane Mayor Marsha Richardson commented, “This is very good news for the people of DeSoto Parish who will benefit from this new technology and more access to high-speed internet. In today’s fast-moving world, communication is a key to success for our businesses and for keeping in touch with family and friends, so I appreciate AT&T’s continued commitment to expanding broadband access.”

“AT&T is proud to work with our local, state and federal leadership to provide the connectivity Louisiana’s residents and businesses demand,” said AT&T Louisiana Regional Director of External and Legislative Affairs Robert Vinet. “Through this new AT&T Fixed Wireless Internet service, we are helping close the remaining connectivity gap in our state.”
Fixed Wireless Internet service delivers an internet connection with download speeds of at least 10Mbps and upload speeds of at least 1Mbps. The connection comes from a wireless tower to a fixed antenna on a customer’s home or business. This is an efficient way to deliver high-quality, high-speed internet to customers living in underserved rural areas.
The towers used to provide this service are connected to AT&T’s network using AT&T fiber optics. AT&T has more than 1.97 million strand miles of AT&T fiber optics covering Louisiana, which enables the company to offer a wide variety of products and services delivering the high-speed connectivity Louisiana businesses and residents need.
In addition to Louisiana, the service is available to residents and businesses in parts of Alabama, Arkansas, California, Georgia, Florida, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Michigan, Mississippi, North Carolina, Ohio, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas and Wisconsin.
