AT&T Expands 5G Home Internet With New 'Internet Air' Offering in 16 Markets

From CNET: AT&T is finally expanding its use of 5G for home internet. On Tuesday, the wireless carrier announced that it is expanding its fixed wireless offering to 16 new markets, offering home broadband over 5G for $55 per month.

Called "Internet Air," the new markets include "areas of Los Angeles, Philadelphia, Cincinnati, Harrisburg-Lancaster-Lebanon, Pennsylvania; Pittsburgh, Las Vegas, Phoenix (Prescott), Chicago, Detroit, Flint-Saginaw-Bay City, Michigan; Hartford-New Haven, Connecticut; Minneapolis-St. Paul, Portland, Oregon; Salt Lake City, Seattle-Tacoma and Tampa-St. Petersburg (Sarasota), Florida."

In a blog post, Erin Scarborough, president of AT&T's broadband and connectivity initiatives, said the carrier determined its 5G home broadband locations by looking for areas in its network that had "enough wireless coverage and capacity to deliver not only a great in-home experience, but also maintain a top-notch wireless service for our existing mobile users."

Those who also have AT&T wireless service and sign up for automatic payments will be able to lower the bill to $35 per month. Similar to offerings from T-Mobile or Verizon, AT&T's 5G home internet does not have overage fees, equipment charges or annual contracts. AT&T also says that it won't increase the price "at 12 months."
