AT&T on Tuesday announced an expansion of its fixed wireless internet service in South Carolina.

The additional service area will include portions of 17 counties, which officials said would extend to rural and underserved areas of the state.

AT&T launched fixed wireless in the state in June under its commitment to the FCC Connect America Fund. The service was previously available in five counties.

"AT&T is a fantastic corporate partner to South Carolina, and its commitment to providing equal access to high-speed internet for people in every part of the state will continue to benefit South Carolinians," Gov. Henry McMaster said in a statement from the company.

The carrier set a goal of providing 30,000 locations in South Carolina with access to fixed wireless by 2020 and expects to exceed 40 percent of that target by the end of the year.

AT&T currently offers fixed wireless in 17 other states.
