Request Fiber Optic Internet

Our neighborhood is current only less than 100 feet from a fiber optic cable that runs through the city. I was wondering if a way to get an AT&T Technician to install fiber optics in our homes.

Hello @kechon,


I’m glad to hear you are interested in getting AT&T Fiber set up in your home! We want to be able to provide the services you desire as soon as possible.


We are still in the process of expanding the network to provide the most coverage to our customers. You can access our Coverage Map where you can check availability at your address. If it is, you can click here to see what plans are offered.


I hope this helps! Please let me know if you have any further questions or concerns. Have a great day!

This does not answer the question. We want to know if we can specifically request to expedite coverage to our specific address.

Is there a way to speed up the process, we are under a HOA so it will be multiple homes being upgraded to fiber.

Hey @kechon,


I definitely understand wanting to have AT&T Fiber available as soon as possible, and we are working to expand as fast as we can. There are a few things needed to maintain those speeds in your area, and it is possible they have not been met yet. You can click here to see more information on the requirements for this type of service.


At the bottom of this page you can enter your email to receive updates about when services will become available for you.


Thank you so much for your time and business with us! We love having you as part of the family. Have a great day!

@my thoughts 
I have already contacted my HOA to look into fiber optics, but meanwhile, I continue to push for an earlier installation of fiber optics in our neighborhood. To my knowledge, my city has fiber optics lines around the whole city and currently offers 1:1 speeds of 1000 down, since my friend less than 1 mile from my home already has AT&T fiber installed about a week ago. 
I am not too sure if we currently have PFP placement, but I see about 3 covers with the  ATT label on them and 1 Fiber optic cover on the main st of our HOA which is about 300 ft from my home.

Hello @kechon,


I understand wanting to have the services available to you as soon as possible. There is currently not a way for us to speed up the process of installing the services. We are certainly working to expand as quickly as possible, and are excited to have you on board when it becomes available.


We sincerely appreciate the patience! If the website says Fiber is currently not available at your address, signing up for the mailing list will allow you to receive a notification as soon as it is. Thank you for your wonderful business, and have a great day!

Count me in too. I am 463 feet away from a house/street that can get fiber 1000. As a homeowner, I'd consider letting equipment be installed in my backyard

They are installing fiber optic cable across my front lawn. Does this mean I will have service availability soon, or do I need to request it be branched off to my house?

Is there any way to find out from AT&T if they plan on coming to my neighborhood next? If door-to-door sales teams are what they do surely there is some sort of plan in place well ahead of when they are actually installing the service no? Fiber 1000 is available 1.4 miles from my house and looking at the coverage maps they seem to be slowly moving south in my direction. I'd love to know if there is any hope whatsoever of getting fiber in the future or if I am stuck with this unreliable Spectrum gig package forever.

I have been trying to get Fiber for 2 years now, I know the lines have been ran. You removed my mail box too put them in. I called the county to find out that it was AT&T running the lines. But i still get told i cant get fiber at my location. I ask customer service who i can speak too and they tell me nothing. They wont transfer me too anyone and have no clue what to do. I have called every month for 2 years. I AM CALLING COMCAST TO PAY THE $3,000 TO RUN A LINE TO MY HOUSE SO I CAN HAVE GOOD INTERNET. THAT MEANS ALL THE HOUSES ON MY ROAD WILL HAVE ACCESS TO COMCAST AND WILL NOT NEED SERVICE FROM AT&T. So unless someone gets back to me before i write the check COMCAST WINS!!!

Re: Fiber Internet

You keep saying to go online and look at coverage map. However the coverage map is TERRIBLE! Would you please not give the political bull crap answer and let us know how we can find out when fiber will be in the area. I was promised when I transferred to ATT from Cox that fiber would be here soon. Here we are approx one year later and we still do not have fiber!!! I have called several times and this is my last effort before I go back to Cox and tell ATT where they can go!!!

AT@T installed new fiber boxes next to my garage and the line runs right in front of my home and a mile down the road. Line has been up and running since July, 2018. We can’t seem to get AT@T to add our address to the line. They claim the line is not for our subdivision. There is only one subdivision with one gate. Their boxes are setting on our subdivision common property. Who is it for if not for the homeowners? How do we get our addresses added to the system?

Not fast enough, I am an employee for ATT and no one can help me get out of 1.5 mbps speed here in my area. There is a pole directly in front of the apartment complex I live in with a Fiber terminal but my address doesnt get fiber, when its only 30 feet in front of this complex. Tired of paying Cox 100$ a month for 50mbps and not being able to use my employee discount for almost 6 years.

@kerrymt73 - To my understanding, there is no way to tell when exactly fiber will be in any given area, not even installation employees or construction contractors know until they get the orders. The coverage map does no good because that will only tell you where the coverage currently is. The only way to tell when fiber is going to be placed in your area is that you will notice crews with ditch-witch for trenching the fiber cable throughout the neighborhood and possibly signs stating "AT&T Fiber Coming Soon" or something like that. Either grey/green pedestals, or green "flowerpots" that look like irrigation covers will be installed unless it is an aerial area, in which case, you will see new fiber terminals with what look like 4-12 protruding heads on them.

 

@Bklawitter - If you want, I would be happy to take a look for you, the only thing I would need would be the service address. If you could send that to me in a private message, I could possibly get a little more information for you regarding the fiber.

 

@Luminoth - Are you sure it is a fiber terminal? Normally for apartment complex's there is a fiber sidewall where all the fiber for the apartments come to a common location. Would it be possible to send me a picture of the terminal itself in a private message? If it is indeed a fiber terminal, I would be happy to take a look into it and get what information I can for you.
