Is AT&T good?
Telecom behemoth AT&T looms large among internet, wireless phone, and TV services—it even owns several of your favorite entertainment outlets, like HBO®, TNT, and Warner Bros.
AT&T offers DSL (digital subscriber line) and fiber-optic internet services, as well as internet-based TV service, all of which rank consistently near the top in CableTV.com’s customer satisfaction surveys. Yes, even in customer support, the toughest category of all.
While AT&T’s internet plans are relatively straight-forward, the TV side can be a bit confusing. AT&T TV and AT&T TV NOW sound alike but aren’t—and AT&T-owned DIRECTV is in the mix, too. The differences are important, and we’ll explain them in the FAQ section (a big one: AT&T TV requires a two-year contract).
But, if you live in an area where you can take advantage of AT&T’s fastest internet (fiber) and most channel-loaded TV service (AT&T TV), it’s a combo worth the price.
