AT&T Laying The Cable

  I have been watching holes in the ground … I lead a pretty dull life …
For the last two days AT&T has been running the fiber cable .. Not sure if they dig a trench or if they pull it somehow …  But they are working and today the were hooking up number 23 Fort Worth Fire Station.  We live in the apartment complex right next to the fire station.
I want the 1 Gbps high speed Internet service.  I hope we get it soon.

att-cable-layingcable-laying-2  I hope we get the high speed Internet soon.  No idea at this point when we will get it.  I would think they would want to hook people up as soon as they can and pay for the cost of the cable going in the ground.

AT&T GigaPower

 A salesman came to the door yesterday and said that AT&T fiber was being put in .. he made it sound like it was installed now.  I asked him how fast the service was and he said 12 Mbps.  I said I have 65 Mbps now.  He said did you check today?  I said yes this morning.
  I live in west Fort Worth (TX) and today they are digging out on the street.  I think they are digging for the boxes to put in place for fiber.
We got Charter Cable right now and get 65 Mbps down and about 5 Mbps up.
If AT&T does bring in their fiber we could get 1 Gbps down.  The cost would be $90.00 a month.  The problem with that is that is the 12 month price. So after 12 months they would increase the price. My guess is that the price would go up by about $30.00 a month.

I am happy with our current service and speed.  But my 27 year old grandson pays for our current Internet and I know he wants faster speeds.  I think he would pay for AT&T GigaPower.
