US-based mobile users can now use bitcoin and cryptocurrency to pay their bill thanks to a new partnership between AT&T and BitPay.

Bitcoin’s path to mass adoption continues forward as major US telecom giant AT&T has announced that customers now have the option to pay their bills in cryptocurrency.

The addition of crypto payments makes AT&T the first major U.S. mobile carrier to offer this option and Kevin McDorman, AT&T’s vice president of Communications Finance Business Operations said:

We’re always looking for ways to improve and expand our services [and] we have customers who use cryptocurrency, and we are happy we can offer them a way to pay their bills with the method they prefer.

Currently, the crypto payments are limited to bill payment only and AT&T did not specify whether customers would be able to purchase smartphones and other accessories online or in AT&T’s brick and mortar stores.

Customers will be able to select BitPay as a payment option when they log on to their accounts online or with the myAT&T app.
