Wireless internet for my family during this covid pandemic

Why is it that people here in WV can't get all access thats not fair we have lost jobs and our children need internet for school and I'm a mother of 6 and only can get the 75$ unlimited plan which I end up paying 10$ for 5 gbs last 2 weeks of month bout everyday this os so ridiculous I can not get internet but thru at&t thats so awful I haven't been offered a better plan especially being a long time customer I can't afford this anymore with no job 

At&t help my children please and people in my state I already have a wireless box to get the wireless internet so my kids can use hotspot off it im willing to pay 100$ a month for unlimited data with no caps please

West Virginia is NOT one of the 21 states where ATT has hardwired internet access, a condition to qualify for the $10 a month ACCESS internet program.

 

You will have to look at the ISPs that provide internet service where you live, I suspect this will be Frontier who purchased Verizon operations several years back (2010).

 

On July 1, 2010, Verizon spun off New Communications Holdings, Inc. and its holding company New Communications ILEC Holdings to Verizon shareholders, which then merged with Frontier Communications. Included in the sale was Verizon West Virginia, among other select Verizon landline properties, which became Frontier West Virginia, Inc.[2] The company operates separately from Citizens Telecommunications Company of West Virginia, the existing Frontier provider in the state.

IF your using ATT wireless cell phone service for your internet, that would not qualify for the program / pricing your asking about. Need to be within ATT landline service area to qualify.

If you have snap you can get 10 dollar internet. With 6 kids and no job surely you qualify for snap.
