New AT&T Fiber 1000 installation tomorrow
I’ve been using Cox Gigablast for the last 4 years, but now that my neighborhood is finally wired for fiber, I’ve decided to switch providers and the installation is happening tomorrow. I consistently get approximately 960Mbps download speed and approximately 40Mbps upload speed so I’m hoping to gain a little more upload speed after changing providers, but the biggest benefit is price. Cox charges about $120mo for their service, and since they have a data cap, I have to pay an additional $50 for unlimited data, otherwise, I’m charged $10 for every 50GB over 1TB, or something like that.
My neighbor across the street currently has AT&T Fiber, and he sent me a screenshot of his Speedtest results. I’m planning to print my Speedtest before the install just to show the tech what kind of speeds I’ve been getting with Cox, and if my speed ends up looking like the pic shown below, I’ll have the tech hook my Cox back up. All my life, I’ve never used any equipment provided by the service provider, I’ve always used my own modem, router, etc. Currently, all my equipment is Ubiquiti UniFi. I’m using a UDM Pro as my gateway/router, which connects to two 24 port switches and three 16 port switches (I have 1 rack downstairs and 2 racks upstairs), and I have 6 APs setup around the house in specific locations so my WiFi signal is maximized everywhere and any client can seamlessly roam from one AP to another. I have about 100 clients on my network, about half are hardwired and the other half wireless, and even though this doesn’t really apply, I have 300+ Zigbee devices throughout the house and outside. Does anyone have any suggestions for what I need to make sure the tech does when arriving tomorrow so I can maximize my throughput? Like I mentioned, if I’m showing speeds like the ones shown below after installation, I’m having the tech remove everything and set everything back up the way it was. I’m looking forward to getting a little feedback.
