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 Home Internet Plans
AT&T offers three home internet plans. They are:
AT&T Internet 100 – Download speeds up to 100 Mbps – $50/month for the first year. $60 a/month after 12 months.
AT&T Internet 300 – Download speeds up to 300 Mbps – $50/month for the first year. $80 a/month after 12 months.
AT&T Internet 1000 – Download speeds up to 1 Gigabit – $70/month for the first year. $100 a/month after 12 months.
AT&T Internet Plan Descriptions
The first tier internet plan (AT&T Internet 100) offers speeds up to 100 Mbps for only $50 per month in the first year. In year two, the regular pricing kicks in, and the cost going forward is $60 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 steam 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 $50 per month for the first year. However, after the first year, the price jumps to $80 per month. This plan also has a 1 terabyte monthly data allowance, but that will be more than enough for most cord-cutters.
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. There is no monthly data cap on this plan, so you have unlimited streaming.
