Considering move from U-Verse DSL to Gigapower Fiber - Questions
I currently have U-Verse (Internet 75mbs/TV U450/2xDigital Phone Lines) + AT&T Wireless. We are trying to 1) Save some $$$ & 2) get better VOIP throughput (iPhone wifi calling, GoToMeeting, Google Hangouts, etc.). A big secondary benefit would be better wifi coverage throughout our home.
1 - Can I connect my own router/modem to Gigapower (i.e., a Netgear router/modem) or do I have to use the AT&T modem/router? I spoke with a U-verse tech who said if I got a compatible Netgear modem/router then AT&T can send a signal to configure it. True?
2 - Will I need to replace my current set of receivers and DVR? If so, is there a cost and is there a limitation on # of receivers?
3 - Will I see an increase in video/audio quality (4K or advanced surround >5.1) or ability to record more shows at the same time?
4 - I have a static IP address, I assume that I can keep it?
Thank you for your help
