After increase prices for some of its wireless plans, AT&T announced another raise but this time it’s good news. New AT&T Fiber customers will benefit from faster internet speeds starting today. The speed boost is only available for entry-level and mid-level plans, which will get a 200Mbps boost to their upload and download speeds. Basically, AT&T’s cheapest fiber plan, the 100Mbps plan will now become Internet 300, while the previous 300Mbps plan will increase to 500Mbps, becoming the new Internet 500 plan. The 1 GIG subscription (Internet 1000) will remain unchanged for the time being.
Following the change, AT&T will offer customers three fiber plans tailored to different needs:
- 1 GIG: $60/month for a year + taxes and $10/month equipment cost
- 500Mbps: $45/month for a year + taxes and $10/month equipment costs
- 300 Mbps: $35/month for a year + taxes and $10/month equipment cost
In addition, AT&T has announced that it will offer its Internet security to Fiber customers at no additional cost. Those who want extra protection can access the Smart Home Manager app and are automatically protected from online threats throughout their household, including Wi-Fi. Normally US airlines offer these kinds of deals to new customers, but in this case AT&T takes a slightly different approach. Qualifying existing AT&T Fiber customers currently using Internet 100 and 300 will be automatically upgraded to Internet 300 and 500 at no additional cost.
