December 20, 2022

AT&T has been connecting people since the first phone call and today has the largest wireless network of any US carrier. But important coverage gaps still exist for consumers, businesses, first responders, and other subscribers, especially in remote and rural areas. In this Partner Profile video, Chris Sambar, president of network at AT&T, shares how the company began vetting and collaborating with AST SpaceMobile. Sambar also explains how the first space-based cellular broadband network that AST SpaceMobile is building might extend AT&T’s coverage to areas and connect subscribers’ ordinary mobile phones using satellites in low Earth orbit.
