AtLink Services, LLC operates under the name of @Link WiFi. The company supplies high-speed internet technology to rural areas, many of which cannot economically obtain internet access any other way. In 2009 AtLink Services, LLC was awarded three federally funded USDA Community Connect Broadband grants to expand internet operations to Native American reservations and other rural communities.

According to press release #0570.09 from the Department of Agriculture written by Dane Henshall November 13, 2009: The USDA Rural Development's Community Connect program provides financial assistance to furnish broadband service in unserved, often isolated, rural communities. These grants are used to establish broadband service for critical facilities such as fire or police stations, at the same time providing service to residents and businesses. When companies such as @Link are awarded USDA Rural Development's Community Connect grants, they must also include a community center that provides community residents with free broadband service for the first two years.

"The Obama Administration recognizes that modern technology is critical to the expansion of business, education, and health care services in rural areas and the competitiveness of the nation's small towns and rural communities," Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack said. "The President and USDA are committed to bringing broadband services to communities, including isolated ones, so rural residents have access to quality economic, social and educational opportunities."

@Link WiFi offers broadband internet and phone service across Oklahoma, emphasizing rural areas and towns. The company's team of RF engineers builds and designs networks from conception to market. The company has been supplying high-speed internet to homes and businesses since 2005.

@Link also provides wholesale data, long distance telephone and CALEA services to companies and organizations. In addition, @Link offers mission critical data services, disaster recovery and business continuity work stations.

Samual Curtis, P. E. is the CEO and President of AtLink Services, LLC. Curtis is a member of the Kiowa and Cherokee tribes. @Link's offices are located in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.
