AT&T and Cox are prominent and well-known internet providers in the U.S. While Cox offers more bundles with TV, phone, and smart home capabilities, AT&T combines its top-tier wireless service with the country’s most extensive fiber internet network.
AT&T Fiber has some of the lowest prices on the market for fiber internet. It provides several plans to choose from, each offering unlimited data and symmetrical upload and download speeds. Recently, Cox has expanded its fiber footprint as well.
Beyond fiber, Cox offers a cable internet connection, while AT&T has an internet protocol broadband (IPBB) connection — a fiber-and-copper-wire hybrid that isn’t as fast as fiber but is faster than cable and standard DSL — as well as fixed wireless and 5G home internet options.
