When is Faster AT&T Speed Going to be Available? - Info from the AT&T Community

Internet_Fiber.jpg

Learn why faster AT&T speeds may not be available

First thing first, AT&T is working on expanding internet service as fast as possible. Unfortunately, a lot of planning, equipment, manpower, and time factor in. When are faster speeds coming? We do not have a date. What we can do is explain why it may not be available, yet, what to look out for, and how to research your address. 

Gigabit Speeds, When Is It Coming?

We are continually expanding our fiber footprint to more households every day. If you’d like to check if service is available to you now or to sign up for a notification if it does become available in the future, please visit att.com/NotifyMe . We will send you a notification via your preferred method as soon as AT&T Fiber becomes available to you.

5 Gig internet is the next evolution of internet. At this time, we are working on expanding that footprint but AT&T does not have information on which neighborhoods will get it and when. Our support teams are also unable to give timelines as they can change. 

If AT&T Fiber is available, you can order now!

Note:  AT&T Internet is not available in all areas, but AT&T is working to change that! Below, you will find information explaining:

  • Why services may not be available?
  • Other AT&T internet options?
  • News about AT&T Fiber expansions?

Why AT&T Internet is not available  

  1. Distance – AT&T Internet is a distance-dependent service. If you are too far away from the equipment, certain services may not be available. This means your neighbor may have service but your home cannot.  
  2. Equipment is not available – To get service, AT&T Internet equipment has to be in the area. In some instances, it isn't. As above, this could mean a neighbor may have it but service was not expanded to your home. We do not have information if or when it will be. If you have 1 Gig Fiber and want to upgrade to 5 Gig, please be patient with us we work to expand that footprint. 
  3. The area is not built for AT&T Internet/ Fiber – some areas are not internet ready. The Community team does not have information if or when it will be since installation is factor dependent as mentioned at the top of the page. Distance and equipment can also play a factor in instances like this.
  4. Another competitor services the area - This happens from time to time but it does not mean all services are not available to you. Check out other internet options below!
  5. For some internet services, what is offered during the point of sale is an estimate. Most of the time, what is offered will be installed. To determine if service is available, our techs will perform tests beforehand and let you know of any issues. 

Note: AT&T has two ways to bring traditional internet to your home, via copper lines or fiber. To get Gigabit speeds, fiber is required. In order to get internet and/or higher speeds, you must be within a certain distance of the serving equipment and the equipment must be present in the area.  

 

I see they are spraying lines, is AT&T on the way?

Maybe. Marking locations is a best practice for most outside crews. They are used to mark an area where a gas line may be or even a water line. On the other side, it could mean AT&T is going to place cable. Until cable and everything that powers internet is placed, our internal systems will not be updated. You can fill out a form, shown below, for more information.

When will Sault Ste Marie get fiber UVerse? Most people here are on Charter because it's ten times faster than ATT. ATT is still using the outdated copper lines.

I would switch if we ever get good internet here.

I have just moved from Texas to Oklahoma. In my area, less than 5 miles away you can get Uverse, but where I live you can't get anything satellite internet. How can customer reach out to someone that actual can upgrade a community with DSL or something like Uverse internet? 

 

I live in zip code 74019 and part of Claremore, OK has ATT services for homes and others do not... but I can get an ATT land line. You would think if I can get home phone service I could get DSL.

How can I request ATT service to come to my neighborhood? We just built a house 10 miles away from our previous home which we had ATT. There are only 2 internet providers and 1 telephone provider and both choices are HORRIBLE! Our neighborhood has about 400 homes and rapidly growing. We need ATT!!! Please help!

I live in the middle of a town in CA and the people across the street have fiber for internet, the Wal-mart ON TH SAME BLOCK and the Walgreens and other stores on this block have fiber for internet but you abandoned me to Hughes over-priced tiny data allowance purgatory. Will you ever get your act together and pull it?
