AT&T Availability

AT&T offers wired broadband internet using two connections: IPBB, a DSL and fiber hybrid connection known as AT&T Internet, and fiber, which is simply branded as AT&T Fiber. More people will have access to AT&T Internet since DSL is practically available wherever landlines are. AT&T Fiber is mainly available in southeastern states like Georgia and Florida, the Midwest, and California.

In addition to IPBB and fiber internet service, AT&T also offers digital landline phone service, home security, mobile service, and livestreaming and satellite TV via their partnership with DIRECTV.

AT&T Plans and Prices

AT&T internet plans share one thing in common: They are all contract-free. AT&T Fiber plans offer the best value (i.e., cost per Mbps) compared to the rest of AT&T’s internet plan. It’s also the cheapest gigabit internet plan of our highest-rated providers, with prices starting at $60 per month. However, AT&T Fiber is AT&T’s least available internet service. Most people are likely to see AT&T Internet (IPBB) plans instead, which offer the same price – $45 per month – no matter what speed you choose.

Plan name Download Speed Monthly Start Price Data Cap
AT&T Fixed Wireless Internet Up to 25 Mbps $55 per month 350 GB
AT&T Internet Up to 10-100 Mbps $45 per month 1 TB
AT&T Fiber
(Internet 300)
Up to 300 Mbps $35 per month Unlimited Data
AT&T Fiber
(Internet 500)
Up to 500 Mbps $45 per month Unlimited Data
AT&T Fiber
(Internet 1000)
Up to 940 Mbps $60 per month Unlimited Data

One thing to remember if AT&T Internet is available near you: They will provide the fastest speed available to your residence, meaning you will only see one AT&T Internet plan (although there are at least five in total). In other words, some people may see download speeds up to 10 or 25 Mbps while others could see up to 100 Mbps.

As of April 22, 2016, AT&T offers “AT&T Access,” a program that offers plans for low-income consumers. Customers who meet the criteria for service can get broadband (at least 25 Mbps) home internet access at discounted rates.

AT&T Internet Fees

You will need to pay for installation if you’re a new customer or recently moved and incurred certain monthly fees, depending on the service you choose. AT&T’s $99 installation fee applies to all internet plans, but it can be waived during certain promotions or skipped if you opt for self-installation. Visit our AT&T Plans and Pricing page to see the most current promotions.

AT&T Fiber customers don’t have to worry about too many additional fees outside of the standard equipment rental fee and installation fee. AT&T charges $10 per month for their equipment fee, which is on par with other DSL and fiber providers like CenturyLink.

AT&T Internet and fixed wireless customers may face data overage fees on top of the monthly equipment fee. Expect to pay $10 per 50 GB if you go over your data cap with AT&T Internet. Or you can add unlimited data to your plan for an extra $30 a month.

The unlimited data add-on is not available to fixed wireless customers. Overage fees are similar to AT&T Internet, charging $10 per 50 GB. However, fixed wireless customers can go over up to $200 worth of data (i.e., 1,000 GB), while AT&T Internet customers can only exceed up to $100 worth of data (500 GB).

Ways to order AT&T Internet:

AT&T Connection Speeds

IPBB and Fiber, the core technologies used to deliver AT&T Internet, have some core differences. The big one is that IPBB uses twisted copper phone lines to deliver data as EF (Electromagnetic Frequency) radio signals. You can think of this as “analog.” Fiber, on the other hand, uses distinct pulses of light over ultra-thin fiber-optical strands to communicate the on/off nature of binary data. You can think of this as “digital.” As you might expect, light travels much faster than radio waves, and delivers an internet connection that is 10-plus times faster than IPBB as a result.

IPBB service is often compared to cable, although the two have some key differences as well. The main one is that IPBB is slightly slower in terms of download speed, but delivers an overall more consistent connection since it doesn’t utilize bandwidth sharing as a network management strategy.

AT&T Internet vs. AT&T Wireless

AT&T Internet and AT&T Wireless come from the same company and, in some cases, can be combined for customers who want to bundle. Bundling the two services will result in a discount on your bill or unlimited data for your AT&T Internet plan. It is possible to get internet at home from AT&T Wireless (which is known as mobile broadband or portable internet); however, the speed will not be nearly as fast as their residential internet service.

AT&T Internet Customer Satisfaction

As of September 2021, AT&T has ranked first in customer satisfaction with J.D. Power. This is the fourth year in a row where customers rate AT&T as the best residential internet provider in the South, and it’s the second year in a row that it’s come in first in north central states like Ohio and Illinois.

In our most recent survey, AT&T earned the top spot based on their service reliability, equipment, speed, customer support and interaction with representatives, and overall value.

AT&T Customer Service

Expect longer wait times when calling AT&T’s customer service. For now, the only support number that residential customers can contact is (800) 288-2020. However, AT&T offers an extensive support section on their website (att.com/support), which features walk-through guides for troubleshooting common issues for each service AT&T offers. Business customers can call AT&T business support at (888) 944-0447, or they can visit AT&T’s online business support center at att.com/support/smallbusiness/contact-us.
