4 out of 5 stars from 1 rating of AT&T

AT&T mobile services are present in the whole United States but their other services that include the land-line internet and digital television is present in 22 states for now. They want to expand their services but for now they are just confined to where they are.

The other best service which they provide is the dialup internet service that can be accessed from the most parts of the United States. They have lot of services and their quality is also very good, they will provide you what you had signed up for.


Speed is very variable depending on the infrastructure and weather conditions and lot of other reasons so do not assume that you will get exactly the speed that is said by the internet service provider and that is not just for the AT&T it is common for every other internet service provider.

AT&T offers speeds that range from the local dialup 786kbps to 6mbps dsl connection. They also have the fast and seamless optic fiber technology, though this technology is not present in all the areas that are under the coverage of the AT&T but where this technology is present it provides the fastest internet service that is available in the market.

Their speed foe optic fiber technology is 45mbps and this is very good speed for those who want to enjoy the fastest internet service. So the actual speeds are close to the speeds that are displayed by the provider.

It depends on you what type of package you want for yourself. If you are just the normal user of the internet that only browse and do casual and light stuff then dsl and dialup is good for you.

But if you want to enjoy the fast internet in which you can download the HD movies and do some heavy uploading then you should opt for the fiber optic technology if that is present in your area.


You will also get lot of extra services with your internet subscription. You will get email and internet security software that you can use to protect yourself from the viruses that are going to damage your pc.

The most important thing about the AT&T is that you can use the nationwide Wi-Fi network. This is very cool because you can use your home based internet subscription to connect to the internet when you are not in your home. You will also get the free parental control and anti-spam software for free.

For assistance, you can get in touch with AT&T by phone and chat. You can find volumes of assistance information online from start-up guides to program news. U verse, DSL and dial-up all are offered with 24-hour tech support. You can also visit your local service store.

No Setup Fee and Bundle your Services

AT&T makes an awesome option if you are looking to get your television, phone, and Internet all in one destination. Finding a DSL firm that is prepared to provide you this kind of contract is rare, because many companies do not provide these other service at all or they simply do not offer packages with DSL.

This will make AT&T's offer exceedingly valuable and one thing you should certainly think about when choosing an Internet service provider for yourself.

With AT&T, you do not have to spend a setup fee to get accessibility to their DSL Internet. All you have to do is sign on, purchase the device, and get your system set up, and you will be prepared to go.

This is great because some organizations can charge an instead very costly set-up fee, and your Internet services ends up becoming a bit more costly than it appears from looking at the regular price. But you will not have to concern about this with AT&T network.


One Year Warrenty

If anything goes wrong with your DSL during the 1st year of your possession, AT&T takes care of it at positively with no extra cost. This is because they offer a one-year guarantee on their DSL packages, something that is quite hard to see and very useful to own. Although you may never need the guarantee, it shows that AT&T stand behind their service and that can give you a lot of comfort of head.


6mbps Maximum Download Speed and Below Average Upload Speed

The download speed offered by AT&T's dsl Internet are a little lower than what you find with many other DSL service providers. The top speed is six Mbps, which is okay for those who do not spend a ton of time period online.

Heavy Internet consumers could have an issue with these speeds, particularly if downloading music and enjoying online games are part of their typical routine, as these tasks can take a very long time to load on a slow online connection.

AT&T's upload speeds also drop behind the forerunners in the industry, with even their most costly plan not quite achieving one Mbps. This should not be as concerning as their slow download speeds simply because you will likely download much more, than you upload.

Although, there are many of other DSL Internet providers who offer faster speeds than this, so this is what to keep in mind while thinking about AT&T as your DSL Internet service provider.
