re: ATT deception about internet speeds and plans
I know I have their modem but when I signed up there was no equipment rental. This may be just for fiber customers though. I pay 60 even a month for 100Mbit

was there anything special you needed to do other than saying "I have my own modem"? I'm looking at switching to their gig speed from Comcast 100 mb.

i Use their modem..... but there isnt a rental fee.

But yea they require their mode. Im unsure how but for fiber, only there modem can receive their packets. I have tried everything to by pass it without losing speeds but using IP pass through and just using the router as is, kills your speed.

Some people say they are getting IP Passthrough to with but i wasnt able to on my nighthawk R7000

re: ATT deception about internet speeds and plans
Our residence had just signed up with Cox three weeks before last years flood. In the past we made the rounds with both U-verse internet and DirecTV. Due to location our tiny development (all of maybe a dozen houses off Elliot) was limited at that time to AT&T's highest download speed, 25Mbps.

We are now entering our 8th month back with Cox, where their triple bundle was less expensive than a la carte TV and internet. This was a no-brainer buying decision that we and others soon discover.

As part of their Ultimate high speed package we get the theoretical 300Mbps max download. Within close proximity to the Panoramic gateway (modem/router combo) using Oookla's speed test I've recorded as high as 330Mbps.

As a BR resident there aren't many options customers have for TV or high speed internet, and with our 12 months with Cox coming up I decided to find out what, if any, improvements AT&T has made since we had them.

The AT&T rep assured me that in our particular location the internet download speed had since been doubled to 50Mbps. He also added that it was a fiber connection, to which I voiced my obvious disbelief. "No, it really IS fiber. To the home!", he insisted.

Further investigation on the best gateway used in new account installations revealed that it is, in fact, powered by a VDSL/ADSL modem. NOT fiber, and certainly NOT to the residence.

No matter really, as I intend to stay with Cox for at least internet. Once you're used to 300 down it's inconceivable to accept any less.

The frustrating part about it is the huge number of potential customers who aren't as tech savvy. Those I really feel for.

The town I use to live in had fiber but you had no need for a modem, CAT5 was run straight into the house and you could plug it straight into your computer or router. Every house in the service area had what I assume was a modem installed on the outside of the house where the cable box was.

I think I'm around $120 for gig fiber and middle tv package with 4 dvrs

I was previously paying like $190 for Cox.

that's what I'm looking at now. been a cord cutter for almost 3 years, but the wife is missing that cable feel. I guess to an extent I am too, but I don't watch much TV.

the gig Fiber with Uverse tv looks like it'd run me about the same as Comcast internet and DirecTV Now we currently have.

Verizon Fios offers that option.
