How likely is AT&T going to install fiber in a existing area served by AT&T non-fiber?
An AT&T internet salesperson from Costco North San Jose tried to get me to switch from Comcast to AT&T. He straight up asked me if I’m a Comcast subscriber, and I told him yes, then he promoted the not-so-fast AT&T internet plan to me. The maximum plan AT&T offers in my area is Internet 25 for $55/month. He could’ve won my heart in the moment if only AT&T fiber was available in area. So, I asked him when AT&T will install fiber in my neighborhood and he said “very soon.” I know to take his words with a grain of salt. The only 2 hardwired ISPs in my area are Cable and DSL. I used to have AT&T DSL nearly 2 decades ago before I switched to the Comcast Cable.
My zip is 95116. My entire neighborhood does not have utility poles or any aerial hanging wires. My driveway has a cement box with the ancient “Pacific Bell” cover on it. I don’t see my other neighbors that have this box. Someone on this forum said that AT&T will upgrade 50% of their hardwired IPBB lines to fiber in the future. I’m eager how this will be accomplished…, burial and digging wise because my entire neighborhood is just sad cement and asphalt (no soil or grass). Can they use their existing underground conduits to insert their new fiber lines without doing much digging?
