Does ATT offered FIXED WIRELESS  internet service... yes providing you live in specific areas within one of the 18 states where ATT accepted CAF-II funding to provide fixed wireless to 2.2 million people or stated as 1.1 million address during the 6  year deployment that ended in 2020.

https://www.nexttv.com/news/att-accepts-almost-3-billion-broadband-subsidies-143691

Carriers getting the money have to build out broadband to 40% of their funded locations by the end 2017, 60% by the end of 2018, 80% by the end of 2019, and 100% by the end of 2020.

https://www.fcc.gov/consumers/guides/connect-america-fund-phase-ii-faqs

What is the timetable for broadband access through CAF Phase II?

Companies that accepted CAF Phase II support have six years to plan and offer broadband to consumers.  Price cap carriers that accepted CAF Phase II support must complete their deployment by the end of 2020.

If you live in an area where a service provider won support through the CAF Phase II auction, the timing for when voice and broadband service will be offered will vary based on when the service provider is authorized to receive support.  Authorized service providers have six years to plan and offer broadband to consumers from the date of their authorization.

For both stages of CAF II support, the deployment schedule is determined by the service provider, not the FCC.  Moreover, not every household that is located in an area where the service provider is eligible for the support is guaranteed access.  While service providers must offer voice and broadband services to a required number of locations within the covered areas, they have the flexibility to choose which locations will be offered service.

To determine if your address qualifies for ATT FIXED WIRELESS...

https://www.att.com/internet/fixed-wireless/

EDIT... ATT FIXED WIRELESS is designed for rural to semi-rural areas within ATT footprint that cannot receive a hardwired UVERSE based internet service.

If up have no internet within ATT ILEC footprint or have LEGACY DSL with 150G data cap, Fixed Wireless may be an option. 

IF you have UVERSE ADSL2+ with internet speed of 18, 10, 5, 3, 1.5 or .76 with 1T data cap... Fixed Wireless should not be an option.

The question is what data cap do you have on your ATT DSL connection?

Are you within one of the 18 states?

Is Fixed Wireless an option at your address?
