AT&T fiber internet-only plans offer speeds fast enough to stream all your favorite TV and movies. AT&T offers affordable home internet-only service plans without forcing you into a TV bundle.
AT&T’s Fiber Optic internet is known as AT&T U-Verse internet, and it’s the best home internet they offer if you intend to cut cable TV. However, they also have very speedy internet labeled IPBB in many areas of the country.
AT&T’s IPBB internet takes ADSL2+, VDSL2, G.Fast, and Ethernet technologies and combines it with a mix of fiber and copper infrastructure to deliver speeds up to 100 Mbps in some parts of the country. AT&T also refers to this technology as IP DSL. Please note that AT&T continues to offer these speeds. However, they have stopped offering their slower legacy DSL as of October 1st 2020.

AT&T Internet Plan Descriptions
The first tier internet plan (AT&T Internet 100) offers speeds up to 100 Mbps for only $45 per month in the first year. In year two, the regular pricing kicks in, and the cost going forward is $55 per month.
100 Mbps is more than enough for your TV streaming needs. An HD stream typically will require between 5 Mbps and 10 Mbps of internet speed. That means 50 Mbps will allow you to stream 4 HD shows or movies on four different televisions at the same time and still have bandwidth left over to surf the internet.
A step up from the first tiers are the AT&T Internet 300 and Internet 1000. The first offers up to 300 Mbps also starts at $65 per month for the first year. However, after the first year, the price jumps to $80 per month.
The Internet 1000 plan offers up to a gigabit of internet speed for $70 per month for the first year. However, after the first year, the price jumps to $100 per month.
AT&T has also lifted their monthly data caps, so these plans all support unlimited downloading.
