Availability in my neighbor.

Only internet service available is Internet Basic 768kbps.

If i order this service, can i upgrade it to At&t Fiber? or upgrade isn't available either?

the internet im having is (Edited per community guidelines) unmatched download and upload speed.  500mb download and 20mb upload.

What im (Edited per community guidelines) hating this Spectrum is almost every where in K-town in LA has no other service providers available except Spectrum.

please send me good news...

Only internet available is in Kbps? Ouch, that is just about dial-up.

You have to check availability on AT&T's site for what they might be able to provide.

756 kbps is more than 10 times better than dialup!  (Not that it's saying a lot).  

500/20 is still better than  .76/.26. (or .8/.4 if you're "lucky").

Well yes that is more as 56Kbps is the limit of dial-up. As a single computer (and nothing else) would struggle even on 1.5Mbps (what I used to have not too long ago), the emphasis was that internet in Kbps (as in measured below 1Mbps) is very low. The benefit is that it is still an always-on connection, so for DSL users means not tying up the phone line (and of course no screeching connection noises).

The official FCC broadband definition is currently 25Mbps down and 3Mbps up minimum. So I wonder what they call it when below official broadband but above dial-up.

I stand by my opinion that priority needs to shift from maximizing internet capability in the most fortunate areas to improving existing areas to the minimum standard of "official" broadband (stable, not flakey connections), including expansion to those with no internet at all. Our country needs a more stable infrastructure across the entire nation.
