Gigabit internet speeds: At&t prices go up after AT&t outage
The biggest internet provider in the US has increased prices for gigabit internet services in response to the US Federal Communications Commission’s decision to block AT&T’s internet service provider (ISP) plans.
AT&s US cable company said on Thursday it would start selling its own services, including its internet-only and high-speed internet plans, from September, the same month as the FCC’s order.
“We are disappointed by the FCC decision and are now looking at how we can ensure that we are providing customers with the best value available in an open internet environment,” AT&ts US head of corporate communications and corporate affairs Craig Thompson told Wall Street Journal.
“As we continue to assess the options, we will provide more details as soon as we can.”
AT& t said it would not sell its internet service, but would offer customers the option of paying extra for the service.
AT & t also said it planned to offer gigabit broadband for internet customers in the next few months.
At&t said its plans would not change, but customers could choose between two tiers of service.
“This change will be effective immediately,” the company said.
AT&t and its rival Comcast have been among the biggest internet providers in the country, with prices of their services ranging from $70 to $100 per month.
ATs customers pay for internet through an internet connection.
AT said it plans to continue offering gigabit speeds to those customers that already subscribe to the AT& ts high- speed internet plan, which allows them to use the internet for a maximum of one hour a day.
“Our customers are our number one priority,” Thompson said.
“We are committed to providing customers the highest level of internet speeds and our customers are not.
We want them to be happy with the service they are getting, so that we can continue to deliver a great value proposition to our customers.”
AT &t said it has more than 800,000 customers in 31 states, and plans to extend service to more of them in the coming months.
