Both AT&T Internet and TDS Telecom are fiber internet providers, delivering gigabit download speeds at reasonable prices. The former also offers IPBB and fixed wireless internet plans, while the latter has DSL and cable plans on top of its fiber ones. Choosing a provider may sometimes come down to the connection type and its availability in your area. Fiber is harder to come by than cable or DSL, but not as much as when it first got deployed in the U.S.
If we’re strictly looking at who offers the fastest internet plans, AT&T Internet takes the lead, with download speeds reaching 5 Gbps versus TDS Telecom’s 1 Gbps. But, if we’re looking at pricing, AT&T Internet’s lowest-priced non-fiber plan is $55 per month, whereas TDS Telecom’s lowest-priced non-fiber plan is $29.95 per month for the same download speeds.
