What is prevailing rate?

Hi! My partner and I have been considering switching to either fiber 500 or 1000, because we are not happy with our current service. I understand that the pricing for each tier is pretty straight-forward, but I am confused about the "prevailing rate" that goes into effect after the first 12 months. There is no indication of what the rate increase could even be when I review the plan at checkout.

Does that happen after every 12 months, or just after the first year? How much is it?

I searched for answers to this, and I didn't find any info that was helpful, but maybe I've missed it. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!

That's the old AT&T pricing system.  There are no more promos so no need to worry about Month 12 Surprises. 😁

The price you see on https://www.att.com/internet/attfiber/ is the price you pay going forward (well, until they do inevitable price increases).

Prevailing rate would be the rate in effect at that time…

Some years there may not be a price increase, this year (2022) there was a $3 increase to those not on a plan.

There is no way to know what the rate will be, however if not acceptable you can always change providers if that is your desire.
