Bumping this thread instead of making a new one.

We’re trying to decide between Cox and AT&T. Online our new address doesn’t show availability for AT&T yet, will call and see offers.

Best from Cox I’ve gotten is

$40 for 30 MBPS for 36 months
$60 for 150 MBPS for 36 months

I don’t think we need more than 150 MBPS at the moment. Does that seem like a good deal since the price is for 36 months?

I figure that after 3 years we could maybe reassess prices and speeds and maybe move to AT&T if they offer a better deal.

I think ATT prices are cheaper...their gigabit is only $70 i think and includes free install/gateway-router, Cox makes you buy their modem or lease it from what I remember unless you have your own compatible modem.

We have a cable modem already.

If I can get 100 for $40 I’d do that. AT&T just shows unavailable at our address online, need to call and see pricing.

stop in at an at&t store and see what they can do.  could be their website isn't up to date.  let them know one of your neighbors got a deal recently for the $40

Just called ATT and was told that they located my address, but service is unavailable there. That’s pretty annoying since I know for a fact that nearby people have att service right now.

Gigabit is 1000 up/down  ;D  I think the $70 is standalone?...I pay less with a package deal and their rates go down every year I use them. 

I'm a Cox hater, hated them as they had a monopoly in a lot of Irvine over the years and had horrible customer service and rates kept going up year after year.

Well at this point we need internet and AT&T says internet service is unavailable at my address. I can get TV service for some reason though.

So what options do I have? Sign up for Cox and then cancel before 30 days if AT&T does have service at my location and they’re just saying they don’t right now because my address is so new?

I’d probably have to go with the 150 MBPS for $60/month, which goes up to $84 after 36 months. So far that’s the best offer they’ve given me. May go to a store and see if they have a better offer.

This question is for people who previously had cox but switched to AT&T.  Did AT&T have to run their own cables or they can can use existing cables? If they have to run their cables, do they a good job in hiding them?  Thanks

No issues with cabling when I got ATT, took the installer about 2-3 hours, I believe the previous owner had Cox.  Note that our home does have Cat5 run throughout the house with an access point upstairs which probably made the install easier.

Cox is a horrible company - bad business practices. They know you only have a few options for broadband and will take you for everything they can right now. They are now capping you each month and charging $10 extra for each whatever amount you go over. I have gigablast and went over last month so I had to pay extra.

I can't say ATT is much better either because I remember they were really slow.

I can't wait till google or verizon or other players come into our market.

No issues with ATT fiber speeds consistently 950MB up/dl

Monthly cap is 1TB which probably covers 98% of use cases.   You must be doing some serious 4k streaming to go over your allowance...

Gigabit fiber with ATT has no limit on data usage.  Looks like ATT may be the way to go for @Netperx

AT&T Fiber is the way to go for any customer.  The problem is most neighborhoods don't have AT&T Fiber.
