AT&T Bringing $180/Month 5-Gigabit Internet to 70 Cities

AT&T today announced the launch of upgraded AT&T Fiber plans, which support speeds of up to 5 Gigabits for some customers. There are two separate plans, one "2 GIG" plan and one "5 GIG" plan, available to new and existing AT&T Fiber subscribers.

According to AT&T, the new plans are available to nearly 5.2 million customers across 70 metro areas including Los Angeles, Atlanta, Chicago, San Francisco, San Diego, Los Angeles, Raleigh, Miami, and Dallas, with a full list available on AT&T's website.

AT&T Fiber 2 GIG is priced at $110 per month plus taxes, while the highest-speed AT&T Fiber 5 GIG plan is priced at $180 per month plus taxes.

AT&T is enacting a new "straightforward pricing" policy, which means there are no data limits, no equipment fees, no annual contract, and no "deals" that will see prices increase at 12 months. These high-end plans include AT&T ActiveArmor internet security, "next-gen WiFi support," and HBO Max access.

With the launch of these new multi-gigabit internet plans, AT&T is calling itself the "fastest major internet provider." AT&T intends to continue to expand its faster connection speeds to additional customers, with plans to cover 30 million customer locations by the end of 2025.

What's the point of these? No WiFi can transport this kind of data. And who needs this for workstation-at-home work?
People with ethernet at home. Multiple people using the multiple WiFi access points at once on WiFi 6e.

Go AT&T. Competition is great and hopefully will spur other ISPs to up their game.

I don't understand this mindset. Its like saying "Why pave the roads, cars can't go faster than 30 mph anyway" back before roads were paved. Something will always be a bottle neck.

I have AT&T's 300 Mbps fiber, downgraded after trying 1 Gbps for a couple of months. My family of couldn't stress the network to a point where we would benefit from 1 Gbps.

That isn't to say others wouldn't benefit, but before spending more money, one should understand what their true needs are. If everyone is on Wi-Fi, you probably can't get much faster than 700 Mbps even with the best Wi-Fi router.
