• AT&T Fiber 2 GIG: $110/month + taxes

  1. Some businesses maybe able to make effective use of such bandwidth, however, for the average home consumer, one is never ever going to come remotely close to making effective use of a 2GB pipe.

    1. I remember in the early 90’s that a CIO told me they would never deploy 80386 CPUs to the desktop because no one would ever need that much power. Never say never in technology!

          1. Bill Gates – a dreadful man, a “frien of Epstein’s likely on several of Epstein’s tapes and a true creep. Stealer of the graphical UI, Gates was the original tech oligarch to go bad and metaphorically stab people in the back while rifling through their wallets. Bill Gates – pure scum. A man destined to sit at the foot of the devil as a foot stool, a man who you can compare to a stool and a polished tùrd. Gates is very polished but he’s still a tool, and a stool

  2. Save your money. In my Southern California neighborhood, T-Mobile has full 5G coverage, and it’s 3x as fast as my cable broadband — 600+ mbits/sec vs, 200 bits/sec. I not quite sure how that compares to the AT&T Fiber speeds, but I was honestly amazed that my iPhone has better download speeds than my cable-fed desktop.
