AT&T Inc.’s satellite-based broadband service in partnership with high-speed-Internet provider WildBlue Communications Inc. is officially available.

The telco launched the service, announced earlier this month, to rural markets in 13 states where landline-delivered digital-subscriber-line service is not available.

“AT&T High Speed Internet Access, powered by WildBlue” is priced at $49.95-$79.95 per month. Speed range up to 1.5 megabits per second downstream and 256 kilobits per second upstream. Users will directly access the Yahoo! Inc. portal (www.yahoo.com), set up as end-users' home pages.

“Broadband access to the Internet is no longer a luxury -- it is a vital need for most households and businesses today," AT&T business development senior executive vice president Jim Callaway said in a prepared statement.

"Satellite technology provides a viable broadband option for areas that cannot be effectively served by DSL or cable, enabling AT&T to offer services in areas that have had few or no options previously,” he added. “Our efforts to expand the reach of broadband will enable many of our rural customers to take full advantage of online business, educational and communications tools for the very first time.”
