How am I supposed to get internet worth a crap if AT&T has monopolized this area?

I live in rural Alabama. I have a 7 yo who homeschools but 85% old his work had too new done with physical books because we can't have a dependable connection. This mess is SO pathetic, he got an Xbox for Christmas but can't play it! For a year and a half the (Edited per community guidelines) THAT AT&T had pulled with my account is criminal or bordering on it. (it SHOULD be illegal.) Their equipment is garbage, the connection, which brings only 6 MBPs inn pathetic download if it's working, is A(Edited per community guidelines)OLUTE TRASH. WORKERS HAVE LIED TOO ME ANDS STOLEN FROM ME. Even with the they off a modern I paid for, I had to FORCE them to give me a replacement. It's against their own policy to have a tech take out old equipment and they three wanted to give me grief? I live in Verbena, Alabama and need to know if there's any company besides AT&T that provides internet here. And, yes, I've looked online.

There are six ISP that service the zip code, 2 are satellite internet companies that would offer higher speeds. Additional 2 companies offering cellular internet.

I doubt ATT has monopolized the area, most companies such as local cable have to be able to make money or choice not to build.

Late to the game, but this guy is wrong.  There are not 6 ISPs servicing this area. 😂😂.  Give me a break with your broadbandnow search.  Everyone knows that sight is a bunch of bait and switch
