AT&T targets copper customers with launch of new 5G FWA ‘Internet Air’ service

25 Apr 2023

AT&T Communications has launched a new 5G-powered fixed wireless access (FWA) service called ‘AT&T Internet Air’ which specifically targets DSL customers in locations that are due to have their legacy copper networks deactivated. The service is priced at USD55 per month and delivers typical download speeds of between 40Mbps and 140Mbps.

TeleGeography notes that AT&T stopped selling DSL-based broadband plans to new subscribers on 1 October 2020, but still has around six million fixed broadband customers across 21 states connected via the legacy technology. Going forward, AT&T seeks to reduce its copper footprint by 50% by 2025.
