ATT Fiber (Gigapower) vs Comcast Xfinity

Looking for anyone that has had experience moving from Comcast Xfinity to ATT Fiber (Gigapower) Service. For clarity, I'm not talking about ATT DSL nor ATT Uverse.

I have no illusions about customer service - I know they both rate mediocre there. I also am not so concerned about cost comparison. It's really more about the install, uptime, consistency of speed the ISP is delivering. If all evils are about equal I'd make a move to take advantage of the increase in speed ATT Fiber provides.

Any personal experiences anyone can share will be gratefully received. Thanks!

  • I recently made the switch to ATT Fiber in May and haven't looked back. The only problem I've had was this last storm took the internet out for a brief second. Installation was pretty normal. I actually helped the guy run the cable only because I knew where I wanted...

    I recently made the switch to ATT Fiber in May and haven't looked back. The only problem I've had was this last storm took the internet out for a brief second. Installation was pretty normal. I actually helped the guy run the cable only because I knew where I wanted it run, and more importantly, where I didn't want in run. I prefer to use my own router, but it is not a simple hookup. You are almost forced to use their router which is built into their modem(no extra cost). as far as the speed goes, you can't beat it. I have 3 kids and we all game, watch videos on our own computers. Not to mention all the other devices that are connected to the network. I used to have the highest speed Comcast had to offer residential and we had problem with it being able to handle our needs. In summary, I would say if ATT fiber is offered in your area, get it. Currently I pay $70/month promotional. After a year it is supposed to jump to $90/month.

  • Correction: $99/month after one year.

  • Thanks, Nate. Sorry I did not rely earlier. I appreciate the info.

Stolen flowers 🌺

Who ever is stealing my plants from the Porch just ask I can give u seeds n u can grow ur own. Is this happening to anyone else. Twice they stole plants from me n 3 of my neighbors down the block plants were stolen from them and one plant was dug up rite in front of the house. Boy O boy if u can't afford plants 🌱

  • Someone should put out some nice pots and figure out how to hook up electricity to them so that they would be discouraged from stealing anymore after they are electrocuted.

  • NW-sider, that is my neighbor and he is the sweetest man! These people are sick! I wish we could have it spray ghost pepper spray in their face when they pull on them!

Social media is an inexpensive way for neighbors to stay informed. Maybe some day we will have a print news source but until then the Dunning Community Chat page will suffice.

The grass roots successes of this page only prove that when you have a group of good neighbors working for the common good anything is possible.
