No, the standard drop wire from the terminal to the residence NID has two pairs.
The cat5e home run cable from the NID to the gateway has (4) pairs which is used in Gigabit wiring.
On ATT Fiber, have fiber to Residence then all (4) pairs from the ONT to the gateway are used (RED port on gateway), but for speeds 100 or less (75 is less than 100) only use two pairs (GREEN port).
Again for a speed greater than currently have would need to have an ATT Fiber installation in the select areas of 67 markets in 21 states where 12.5+ million addresses will have this type of connection available by mid 2019. For the remainder of the addresses (about 60 million) would need to hope for improved or different technology to be deployed such as Project Airgig.
You already have a second line, bonded pair is two lines combined to provide the 75M.
One Uverse account per address....
75M is the current top speed tier available in all markets that support this tier.
There are 3 communities are are testing a 100 tier copper (VDSL) speeds. These may become available to more markets in the 2nd half of year.
"I noticed they have expanded the 75/20 and 100/20 VDSL2 profiles to a new area, Wichita, KS. Used to be just Lansing, MI and South Bend, IN. So at least its expanding."
Anything faster from AT&T would require you to be in an area/address that supports or will receive future AT&T Fiber (12.5+ million address by mid 2019, currently about 4 million are completed).

The Gateway will not use more than two pair.
How can we improve?
