AT&T(s t) has found another use for its LTE and HSPA networks besides connecting iPhones and Android devices to the internet. It’s connecting homes. Ma Bell has started offering a residential broadband and voice service that relies on a 3G/4G modem for its link back to the network rather than traditional wireline access technologies.
FierceWireless first spotted the new service on AT&T’s website, which shows that that its is now available in Delaware; Maryland; New Jersey; Pennsylvania; Virginia; West Virginia, Washington, D.C.; and parts of eastern Kentucky on the West Virginia border.

In fact, they’re squarely in the middle in of Verizon Communications’(s vz)(s vod) turf.
