AT&T has unfortunately left tens of millions of households in its 21-state wireline territory without fiber-to-the-home access. The company also stopped offering its oldest DSL product to new customers—even in areas that it hasn’t upgraded. That means new customers can only sign up for AT&T wired Internet in places that have either fiber-to-the-home or fiber-to-the-node access.

That is the sound of the digital divide growing before your very eyes.
