An overview of AT&T internet

Availability 

AT&T internet options are currently available in 21 states and many cities throughout. To find out what specific options are available in your city, you can visit their website and check availability using your ZIP code.

Contracts

A contract is not required to purchase AT&T internet. However, contract options are offered and in some cases, required to qualify for promotions. If you have a contract with AT&T internet, it will typically be one to two years and will be subject to an early termination fee if you cancel early.

If you disconnect your service more than 14 days after activation, you will be charged a prorated early termination fee. You must also return any AT&T-owned equipment within 21 days of cancellation. If you don’t return the equipment or return it damaged, you will be charged a $150 fee. If you then return the equipment within six months of cancellation, the fee will be refunded.

Equipment

All AT&T internet plans have a $10 per month equipment fee for the equipment necessary for your service, including a modem and Wi-Fi gateway. A modem and gateway or router are what connect Wi-Fi devices in your home to the internet service. AT&T’s gateways are a combination of modem and router.

Reviews

AT&T has favorable reviews – a 3.9 out 5 on Consumer Affairs. AT&T’s scores have been increasing year over year — evidence that AT&T is a company that keeps improving.

Deals and promotions

AT&T is almost always running promotions. New AT&T internet customers can usually expect some kind of monthly discount off their internet plan, as well as some kind of rewards card. The value amount on the reward card will typically be determined by which internet plan you purchase.
