How can you go about getting fast and stable WiFi when AT&T doesn't run WiFi where you live. Satellite isn't a good option either. Send help.

Location is Bess Rd in Statesville NC.

Use your own router?

Do you mean public hotspots or 4G connectivity for a phone?

Or do you mean internet connectivity in general?

If there is no physical landline for that and no possibility of getting it, sadly you will have to buy one of those portable Wi-Fi (mobile Wi-Fi) routers, that needs a mobile data SIM card. 


The ability to google properly is a skill of its own.

So I go to Google Maps and see that Statesville, NC is about 40 miles from Charlotte and about the same from Winston-Salem/Greensboro AND at the intersection of two interstates.  My conclusion - the fellow is trolling us and ought to know that he can simply get a router that does Wi-Fi.  Certainly there would also be 4G Cellphone coverage in that town.

Just get a WiFi router... If AT&T isn't providing one, get your own on Amazon and plug it into the AT&T modem.

WiFi stands for wireless where you use your device to connect to the internet without any wires. The proper term would be No internet, not No WiFi.

You're right that we are in the middle of those cities but also put into Google maps my road which is Bess Rd and you'll see where I am specifically talking about. No trolling is going on. I just want to be able to have WiFi access from an ISP provider to have WiFi on that specific road which is Att's area to run the cable for that.

Incorrect, WiFi is a way of connecting to "a network" without wires.  If that network happens to include Internet connectivity is irrelevant.


Router: i5-7200U appliance running pfSense WiFi: Ubiquiti nanoHD (~700Mbit peak throughput)
ISP: Zen Unlimited Fibre 2 (66Mbit) + Plusnet Unlimited Fibre Extra. (56Mbit)

If you dont have decent internet where you live then move to the city. Because ISP's will not give you good internet if you live in rural areas with shit for population density.

I live in the Charlotte area. I'm assuming you need internet? I'm pretty sure at the very least spectrum services your area. You may not be able to get top tier speeds but you should at least have access to 100mbps.

So you live about 10 miles from the closest suburban area? I'm not surprised you can't get fixed line services. 

DSL would probably have to run all the way back to Statesville, and a DSL signal cant reach that far. 

And it would be a large cost to run fiber or coax and setup a PON/CMTS in the middle of nowhere for the all of 5 houses that seem to be on that road from Google Maps. 

 

I don't know how hilly it is, but apart from a 4G connection which you already seem to be using, a PtP WiFi connection might be the next best idea if you can find somewhere in town that will let you install a connection and put up an antenna for a small rental fee. This gets very complicated though for someone complaining they have "No WiFi"
