When is AT&T Fiber Going to be Available - Things to know from AT&T

Internet_Fiber.jpg

When is AT&T Internet coming to my neighborhood? We're Working On It

 

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. We do not have information if or when it will be.
  3. The area is not built for U-verse – some areas are not U-verse ready. The Community team does not have information if or when it will be. Distance and equipment can play a key in instances like this.
  4. Another competitor services there 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!

Note: In order to get higher speeds, you must be within a certain distance of the serving equipment or the equipment must be present in the area. Points 1 and 2 apply in these scenarios. If internet is not available, there are other options.

 

Gigabit Speeds, When Is It Coming?

Check out our coverage map to see where AT&T Fiber is at and cities underway. If AT&T Fiber is available, you can order now!

 

If your neighbor has AT&T Fiber, we can research your address to see if it's available. Remember, distance and equipment still play a factor as mentioned above. 

 

Heads Up: Some areas, or homes, may not have AT&T Fiber, yet. There a many factors including those listed above. It can take time to build out areas for fiber so please pardon our dust.

Hello,  

 

i currently am residing in zip 75002.  I recently moved from zip 75013, which is about 5 miles away.  At my old home I had AT&T gigapower, which was amazing.  At my new home the best available is AT&T DSL, with a max speed of 18mbs down and 2 MB’s up, which is 1.8% of my former internet speed.  I have called, tweeted, facebook’ed, etc and haven’t been able to get in touch with anyone who can give me an idea of when faster service might be in the area or how to go about petitioning the right people to do so.  The area I live in is a affluent area, and one of the major complaints on local message boards and social media is about our lack of internet services.  Please help!

This has been a decade battle with ATT to improve their service in my town. We get told over and over that's "it's" coming. The town as a whole has pretty much and have been planning on a source to come in and revamp the town and basically kick att out. ATT is constantly trying to buy new companies when they can't even take care of what they got, as far as Cell Phone service they are way behind Verizon, and way behind some of the cable companies on the internet. They don't give a flying cug about their customers. I'll give you an example, my town was the last in Texas to get touch tone dialing, yes I said it, touch tone freaking dialing. PPL here are fed up and they are looking for a Chattanooga style internet structure. I'm sick and beyond sick of att and their nickel and dime crap. I'll be switching all my services to someone else next week and then I'm going to all my family members to do the same. Tired of their double talk and straight up lies.

I have a similar fiber availability question. There is fiber on the pole at tthe end of my driveway and it has only one line connected and several available connections. It’s been that way for a few months but AT&T online and customer say that fiber isn’t available at my address. 

Two AT&T servicemen have said that it looks available on the pole at my house.  The neighborhood has fiber. 

Would someone just okay the servicemen install it at my house?

The U-verse is terrible at my house. A repairman will be back today for that. 

thanks.

I am moving into a home in a new development on land where a house used to exist.  The original home was on a large corner lot that was subdivided into 7 units with a new private street.  The address of the original home, along with neighbors on either side of the lot/development, one on one street, the other on the other street around the corner, all are able to receive Uverse TV and 75Mbps internet speed.  However, when I enter the addresses of the new homes now on this site with address on the new private street, the max speed shown is 18Mbps and no Uverse TV available.  I believe the database just doesn't recognize the new addresses, but physically they are located where 75Mbps Uverse and TV should be available.  What would it take to get the database updated?  I've called support a few times now and various UVAT tickets filed, but no resolution.

 

If the issue isn't resolved, I will sadly need to resort to getting service from Comcast.

Well this experience has been extremely frustrating and a huge slap in my face.  I managed to get one of the vacant lot's address in my new development validated at the recommendation of the rep, who correctly put in a UVAT ticket for that address in lieu of mine since mine was blocked by the system for seeing a "duplicate" ticket due to previously unsuccessful tickets filed.  She thought it could help get my address validated in the future once my duplicate ticket expired.  Well, AT&T still refuses to accept my validation request at my address saying it's not available even though I successfully got my neighbor validated.  Reps upon reps have claimed to email/contact their superiors for resolution to no avail.  Rejected UVAT tickets have been escalated with no effect.  My neighboring lot (an empty vacant house still under construction) now can get Uverse TV and faster internet speeds thanks to me, yet AT&T still refuses to sign up a willing and ready to pay customer.  I must have called and spoken to at least 10 different reps over the course of the last 6 weeks.  I am completely befuddled and dumbfounded.

Issue was finally resolved by a very helpful phone rep who went the extra mile to get the address validated.  Thanks.

PLEASE HELP.  The neighborhood above us has U-verse and the neighborhood below has U-verse.   The fiber optic line and box to connect to it across the street from our neighborhood entrance. We have been told that U-verse is not available to us. Why is this the case?   Also,  Our next-door neighbor has AT&T fixed wireless, however; the rest of the neighborhood has been told that it is not available to us.   What is the rationale for this?   Thank you.

I have been asking for AT&T fiber in the neighborhood of Biltmore Park, Huntersville, NC. We do not have an HOA!!! Spectrum and Dish are here, but the neighborhood is not regulated. I know that myself and a number of other neighbors would love AT&T Fiber! I would be happy to do a survey if you would like to consider this area for install.

I hope that this helps bring your services to this area more quickly! Even the Spectrum Tech guys can't believe the low quality service Spectrum is providing! And I no longer have security - they just stopped it!

Thanks, Liz
