AT&T fiber plans start at $55 for 300 Mbps and go up to $180 for the fastest 5-gig plans. The best deals for AT&T internet are the Internet 300 and Internet 1000 plans. They offer the best balance of speed and price, and either tier has enough horsepower to handle anything you could throw at it.
The Internet 500 plan isn’t bad, but if you need more than 300 Mbps, we think it’s worth the extra cash to just go all-in on Internet 1000. Finally, the plans above Internet 1000 are faster on paper, but we don’t think most households will see much real-world difference unless you’re extremely heavy users (think multiple simultaneous 4K TV streams).
We gave AT&T 4 out of 5 stars on value, meaning that the price for the speed is better than average. Compared to other providers, AT&T offers better price per speed than almost every other competitor. However, AT&T doesn’t offer much in the way of lower-tier plans, and the cheapest plan is more than $50 per month.
You will pay for installation with AT&T, even if you go the self-installation route. However, you won’t have any equipment fees like you might see with other providers.
We gathered and analyzed reviews from over 350 current AT&T customers, and the majority of customers said that they consider the price to be reasonable for the speeds they get. A few customers called out that they would like to see cheaper price options or easy-to-access pricing promotions for current customers.
We scored AT&T 4 out of 5 on equipment and installation. Self-installation is free if you can get fiber internet (AT&T has phased out DSL plans for new customers), but there's a $99 professional installation fee for new fiber connections. We wish the company offered a 100% free installation option like other brands do. We like that AT&T gives you free internet equipment, though. Other brands charge in the range of $10–15 or more, and that can really add up over time.

AT&T has several deals and promotions on internet service. If you sign up for qualifying AT&T fiber internet plans, you can get a $100–150 prepaid gift card.
AT&T will pay any early termination fees charged by your previous service provider in the form of a prepaid gift card, but you’ll have to show your old bill and jump through a few hoops.
Offers valid through 3/31/2023.
AT&T doesn't offer AT&T-branded TV service, but it owns DIRECTV and offers bundles for AT&T internet paired with DIRECTV satellite TV or its streaming option, DIRECTV STREAM. Unfortunately, most of these bundles simply combine the price of purchasing each service on its own, so you won't find savings through bundling AT&T internet and TV.
If you’re canceling AT&T service, you need to worry only about returning your equipment. There are no early termination fees to worry about since most plans don’t require a contract. That’s a breath of fresh air! You will get charged, however, if you don’t return equipment on time.
Low-income households that are approved for the federal Affordable Connectivity Program can get speeds up to 100 Mbps for $30 per month through Access from AT&T. Installation and equipment are free. However, this service is limited to areas with AT&T fiber access and does not apply to legacy AT&T DSL customers.
