Upgrade to 1GB Internet for existing customers

Why does AT&T charge an equipment fee when they don't for my current fiber optic 300 mbs service? Also, why don't current customers receive any benefit from reduced rates? I want to increase speed to 1GB but keep hearing the $49.95 rate it's for new customers only. Guess I'll be switching to Cox gigabit service.

if you have internet you have equipment therefore charged a fee the 4995 is to entice new customers and get that price for 1 year on a 2 year contract.

@magnumforc some long term customers have no equipment fee. New customers have it. If you have att internet you have a gateway. Even if you have bypassed it.
