How much is the total bill for fastest internet and phone with fees,taxes?

We're shopping for internet-phone bundle. I can't get any info on the AT&T website on the exact cost including fees, taxes so I thought I'd ask here what the monthly bill has been. Thanks.

The bundle I'm looking at is

1000 Mbps connection

with AT&T FIBER—INTERNET 1000  

Includes unlimited data

Unlimited Calling

with Phone Unlimited North America

Best value

$94.99 /month  
current price $ 94.99 per month
for 12 months plus taxes. Includes a $5/mo. discount with AutoPay and paperless billing discount. $10/mo equipment fee applies.

for 12 months plus taxes. Includes a $5/mo. discount with AutoPay and paperless billing discount. $10/mo equipment fee applies.

So how much will I end up paying each month with this plan? Also, it seems to be saying you have to agree to a minimum of 12 months.

Not everywhere has the same taxes. Any quotes should be before taxes and of course including the intro discounts. So you just add those in to compare full cost at current rates.

Also you must verify if that option is even available at your address in the first place. Fiber is not available for everyone.

Getting the info online after entering your address?

Some known details...

The $94.99 is for 12 months by agreeing to both paperless mailing AND autopay... having these 2 lowers the bill by $5 per month for 12 months. Thus without this extra discount the 12 month price is $99.99.

Phone will be subject to your local state/county/city sales taxes PLUS government fees, I would estimate $10 for taxes and fees. Could be higher if in California compared to Wisconsin with sales tax of 5% or any other state. But using 10% of billing to cover fees/taxes should be close.

Then add $10 for the equipment thus $94.99 + $10 is $104.99 plus taxes and fees would bring total monthly to around $115 to $120. Add $5 if not doing paperless billing with autopay. I would BUDGET $4 per day for total $120. 

After 12 months the FIBER speed tiers increase $20, thus the $99.99 would be $119.99 PLUS any increase of the phone service after promo. Do not forget the $10 equipment fee brings expected price of $140 to $150 in 12 months.. BUDGET $5 per day for $150.

Full Tech Installation is $99 due on first bill along with the pro rated 1st bill plus next full month as ATT bills 1 month in advance. Would expect first bill with above mentions to be $225 to $250 depending on days left in initial billing cycle.

Section 5 is for Home Phone while Section 6 is for Home Internet. 

Be sure to read all of section 1.

Thanks My Thoughts for the info. I'm in Arkansas (regarding taxes) if that makes it easier to give a more accurate estimate. So you have to commit for 12 months and after that  internet goes up $20 one time? Also, is the top speed internet the only one that is genuinely unlimited data (without any extra charges or throttling)? I only saw the phone number for further info. I prefer to rely on chat as there's something in writing vs a phone call. We're comparing a local service and AT&T to replace Cox which has gotten too expensive.

I thought I read installation fee was waived.

Also, would I get HBO Max with this? Thanks

Chat is not reliable. Very bad information comes from it lately, plus no record of it is saved to the account for reference. Outsourced and/or poorly trained agents resulting in a lot of misinformation or false promises coming from chat. Sometimes I think they are treading water with existing agents because of the severe low staffing from the pandemic.

So doesn't matter at all what a chat agent mentions. When you place an order, read the order confirmation as well as fine print on the website. That is the only valid proof in writing.

You could try calling your state tax office. They may be able to get you that info. Internet service cannot be taxed from a Google search. The state tax office should be able to confirm that too.

Hi, @swphn.

 

Thank you to all the aces for the useful information.

 

On that link that you provided, it does say that if you get AT&T Fiber it will include HBO MAX. You would have to get the fastest speed though, which is the 1000 Mbps. This is the only plan that includes it per the link that you provided.

 

Let us know if this helps.

Given some differences in State taxes and fee's, I was just hoping a number of regular users who had phone and genuinely unlimited internet would simply say how much they pay each month.

I would say to budget $20-$25 for state and local fees and taxes.  If you're lucky it will be less.

There's really no way for anyone outside of your immediate location that can say exactly what local fees and taxes will be.  I live in N. Texas and our city and county both love to add taxes and fees onto any and all services.
