What Is the Cheapest AT&T Package?

We’ve researched the best AT&T internet packages that have the smallest price tags.

AT&T’s TV and internet packages aren’t the most affordable. But if you need AT&T and have to stay within a budget, here’s what you’ll need to know about the cheapest AT&T internet and TV packages.

Cheapest AT&T internet package: AT&T Internet 300

Package Price Maximum download speed Technology type Details
AT&T Internet up to 100 Mbps $55.00/mo. Up to 100 Mbps DSL-hybrid View plan
AT&T Internet 300 $55.00/mo. 300 Mbps Fiber View plan

Data effective as of post date. Offers and availability may vary by location and are subject to change.

AT&T plans vary by location. If your area runs on AT&T’s DSL-hybrid network, the fastest download speeds you might get are 100 Mbps—but all of AT&T’s DSL-hybrid plans cost $55 a month, even if your internet is slower.

In areas where AT&T offers fiber-to-home internet, the cheapest plan you can get AT&T Internet 300, which is also $55 a month. AT&T Internet 300 gets you a maximum download speed of 300 Mbps, which’ll handle regular web browsing, online gaming, and video streaming for a small to mid-sized family.

While AT&T’s starting plans are more expensive than most internet providers, keep in mind that AT&T’s prices include its equipment fee, which other providers would charge about $10 per month for.

Overall, it’s crummy that you can’t expect the same internet speeds from AT&T no matter where you live—especially when these wildly varying plans have the same price. If AT&T internet in your area is slow, check out other options near you by entering your zip code below:

Cheapest low-income internet package: Access from AT&T

Package Price Maximum download speed Data allowance Details
Access from AT&T with up to 3 Mbps $5.00/mo. Up to 3 Mbps 150 GB or 1 TB View plan
Access from AT&T with up to 10 Mbps $10.00/mo. Up to 10 Mbps 150 GB or 1 TB View plan
Access from AT&T with up to 100 Mbps $30.00/mo. Up to 100 Mbps Unlimited View plan

Data effective as of post date. Offers and availability may vary by location and are subject to change.

Access from AT&T offers affordable internet to low-income families. If you or someone in your household qualifies for Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), Supplemental Security Income (SSI), or the National School Lunch program, you can apply for Access from AT&T. You can also apply if your household income is within 200% of the federal poverty guidelines.

If you qualify for Access from AT&T, you’ll also qualify for the Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP). With ACP, you’ll save up to $30 a month on internet—so if you pair those savings up with Access from AT&T, you’ll get internet for free.

It’s a little bit of extra paperwork to apply for both assistance programs, but it’s worth it. And if you’re offered a choice on your Access from AT&T plan, we recommend going with the 100 Mbps plan, since it comes with the fastest speeds and unlimited data. Watching out for data caps is a real bummer.

Cheapest AT&T and DIRECTV STREAM bundle: Internet 300 + DIRECTV STREAM ENTERTAINMENT

Package Price Maximum download speed Channels
AT&T Internet 300 + DIRECTV STREAM ENTERTAINMENT< $124.99/mo. 300 Mbps 65+ View plan

Data as of post date. Offers and availability may vary by location and are subject to change.

AT&T internet bundles with DIRECTV STREAM to offer streaming live TV. But our experts find DIRECTV STREAM overpriced and dislike its limited Cloud DVR. Check out other live TV streaming services—like YouTube TV and Hulu + Live TV—for a better deal.

But if you’ve got your heart set on bundling with DIRECTV STREAM, DIRECTV STREAM ENTERTAINMENT is your cheapest option. While the $69.99 a month price tag is average for a live TV streaming service, the value isn’t the best. It comes with only 65+ channels, 3 streams, and 20 hours on your Cloud DVR.

Final take

AT&T’s packages aren’t the cheapest, but its fiber internet plans offer a lot of bang for your buck with matched download and upload speeds. And if you qualify for Access from AT&T as well as the Affordable Connectivity Program, you can get up to 100 Mbps internet speeds for free. That’s a pretty sweet deal.
