I think I paid a $100 install. It took 4 hours and it took 2 techs. Maybe that's why they raised the install price.

I went with AT&T Fiber.

Free installation and equipment, $70/mo. (w/ wireless plan bundle discount).  Based on my call with AT&T, that price will not change as long as I don't switch to a different service.  Time will tell if AT&T breaks that promise.

Pretty reliable so far.  I'm getting via ethernet around 880down/920up consistently regardless of time tested.

Does anyone go over 1TB since cutting the cord?

Sucks that they have limits on residential data now.

Bumping this post.

Any updated opinions on AT&T vs Cox for home internet? Looking for reliability over cost. Low ping would be ideal of course.

move to AT&T...haven't had any problems.  Never had Gigablast but I'm pretty all these 300 mb vs 1 gig thing is PR fluff.  AT&T's router is bad so you should have a backup. 

We had issues with our setup in part because they were trying to merge our mobile account with our internet account.  But other than that, AT&T is a lot cheaper than Cox.

Does AT&T allow an option to hardwire the ethernet straight to my router from whatever box they have outside my house? This is how I currently have my FiOS setup so I could bypass their hardware.

What is the cost of AT&T Fiber? It's not available in all areas.

Cox Gigablast is $99/month with a discount for us.

It shows as available based on address. 100 Mbps is $50 with 1TB cap. 300 Mbps is $70 with 1TB cap. 1000 Mbps is $80 with no data cap.

Not sure.  They set up the gateway and then run a hardline to the designated outlet.   The hardline seems fine...it's the wifi that's an issue.

Right so if I bypass their router and use my equipment then it would improve the signal.

I don't know if you can bypass their router.  I just have another router with the hardline...works fine.

You need to put the AT&T gateway in pass-through mode and then you can use your own  wireless routeur.

AT&T has different gateway models but there are a lot of tutorial online to put yours in pass-through mode.

It works fine and now I have two wifi routers.
