AT&T said it is correcting mistakes and will exceed requirements in each state.

If you live in an area where AT&T has taken government funds in exchange for deploying broadband, there's a chance you won't be able to get the service - even if AT&T initially tells you it's available.
AT&T's Mississippi division has received over $283 million from the Federal Communications Commission's Connect America Fund since 2015 and in exchange is required to extend home-Internet service to over133,000 potential customer locations. As we previously reported, the Mississippi Public Service Commission (PSC) accused AT&T of submitting false coverage data to the FCC program. As evidence, Mississippi said its "investigation found concrete, specific examples that show AT&T Mississippi has reported location addresses... as being served when, in fact, the addresses are without service."
