AT&T Introduces LTE-Based Home Phone and Internet ServiceAT&T is rolling out the red carpet to introduce a new home phone and Internet service.

The service, which relies on the carrier’s LTE and HSPA networks, works through a modem (free with a two year contract, AT&T says) and only needs a power outlet and access to adequate AT&T coverage in a user’s area.

The carrier refers to the new offering as its “Wireless Home Phone and Internet Service,” with a $20/month fee for the phone and $60/month for Internet.
At this price, however, you’re only allowed 10 GB of data. For $120, you can get 30 GB. And it’s $10 for every GB over that threshold.

According to AT&T, the wireless modem can supply Internet service for up to 10 devices via Wi-Fi and can be used with customers’ existing wired telephones.

The carrier is quick to point out that the service is completely portable, which allows you to use it wherever the carrier provides HSPA and LTE service as well.

Although the presumptive goal is to introduce the service nationwide, for now AT&T is selling the service only in Baltimore, Eastern Pennsylvania, Southern New Jersey, Virginia, Washington D.C. and a few additional East Coast locations.
