Posted by Delacroix on 6/17/24 at 10:40 am
Do you have to use ATT's equipment or is there a list of compliant modems I can purchase myself? I am currently with Cox and have a nighthawk router and Arris Surfboard modem. I'd assume I'd need new equipment with ATT? I'm supposed to have 250mbps speed, but it fluctuates as low as 40 someti...

[quote]No you have it right. I’m sure saving while they’re in school could be beneficial for some too. Maybe? For my personal situation, I can write off $2,400 for Start K-12 contributions, saving me $102 (4.25% marginal rate). While tax free growth is nice, any START funds used cannot be also us...
