College essay - need ATT response

My paper is entitled Reasons for Poor Internet/Cell phone Services in Rural Texas.

   My questions are:  (and PLS respond in layman’s terms, or dummies terms preferably lol)  Why won’t ATT construct a new cell tower in my very rural area?  Why doesn’t ATT provide internet service out here?  How come I could enjoy streaming Roku in 3 rooms of my house just 2 years ago, but now it won’t even work at all in any room?   Why do I have to go to the end of my driveway to text now?  Why won’t my cell phone let me make a phone call now?  Ever.

Will we be forced to give up our cell phones & internet services soon to avoid paying for literally nothing?

This is an eternal problem when you need to do some work or order a task quickly. The connection just disappears.
