AT&T extends Access from AT&T with HUD

Thursday 8 September 2016 | 10:49 CET | News
AT&T has joined forces with the US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) in a bid to narrow the digital divide. The carrier is now a national stakeholder in HUD's ConnectHome initiative, a public-private initiative aimed at connecting families living in HUD-assisted housing to low-cost internet service. Over the next year, AT&T will host 30 events across 15 ConnectHome pilot communities located within AT&T's 21-state wireline service area in order to provide information about Access from AT&T, a low-cost internet service launched in April.
