Frequently Asked Questions

What internet providers can I get in Atlanta?

Both AT&T and Xfinity are widely available in the Atlanta area. AT&T stretches a little farther out from the city, but both have coverage basically everywhere in the downtown area. Viasat satellite internet is also an option in Atlanta, if that works better for you.

How much is Xfinity Internet?

Xfinity internet packages start around $29.99 per month and run up to $299.95 per month, depending on the speed you choose. Prices and packages vary by area, so see what’s available in your area to get the most accurate information.

How do I turn off Xfinity Wi-Fi?

To disable your Xfinity Wi-Fi, open a web browser and enter 10.0.0.1 in the address bar. This will take you to your router’s preferences. From there, simply select the Disable button in the Wireless Network field and click Save. To turn it back on, just repeat the process and choose Enable instead.

How do I get my Xfinity modem online?

You can get your Xfinity modem online by checking out our guide to Xfinity self-installation. Just follow a few important steps, and you’ll be connected.

How can I boost the Wi-Fi signal from my Xfinity modem?

If you need to boost the signal from your Xfinity Gateway modem, consider a Wi-Fi extender. These devices can increase the range and signal strength of your network, which can improve performance in dead zones or areas far from the router’s location.

How do I make my Xfinity Wi-Fi more secure?

Making your Xfinity Wi-Fi more secure can be done in a few simple steps:

  1. Use a secure password: Include numbers, symbols, and uppercase and lowercase letters. Change your password regularly.
  2. Use your firewall: Both your computer and router are likely to have a built-in firewall. Turn it on! The exact process will vary from device to device, but it’s usually pretty easy. Ask tech support for help if you need it.

Have guests use the public Xfinity hotspot rather than your private network: This will keep your password private. Plus, Xfinity Gateways broadcast a public hotspot by default, so there’s no setup necessary.

How much is AT&T Internet?

AT&T plans start at $40 per month and go up to $90 per month. This makes AT&T a great choice for reliable and affordable internet service. Of course, you’ll have to check your specific area for exact pricing and plan details.

What is AT&T Fiber?

AT&T Fiber is AT&T’s fastest internet service, with speeds up to 1,000 Mbps. As the name suggests, it operates using fiber-optic cables rather than traditional copper cables. Fiber has the potential for much greater speed and bandwidth capacity than standard cables.

How fast is AT&T Fiber?

AT&T Fiber speeds range from 100 Mbps up to 1,000 Mbps—that’s pretty fast.

Since 1/5/19 I have talked to 8 representatives. I have had 4 accounts created I believe. Every single person told me something different. First I was told the incorrect price 3 different times. Then when I finally agreed (even though it was not what I was quoted as well as I requested for the recording to be pulled of the phone call but was told they couldn't) the tech came out to install and couldn't and I was told there was a system outage in my area ironically. I called to reschedule and was told there is already DSL interent at my address. Spoke with 2 or more reps when they finally realized they were looking at the wrong address. They had to create a new account AGAIN and was then told I owe a deposit even though 2 days ago I didn't. Finally that got resolved and Omar in retentions located in Nashville Tn ID oc406u FINALLY resolved my issues and was able to make me want to stay. EVERY SINGLE OTHER REP HAS BEEN INCOMPETENT AND ALWAYS ASSURED ME THAT I GOT THE RIGHT PERSON TO FIX THE ISSUE BUT YET THEY JUST ADDED TO THE PROBLEM. AT&T has HORRIBLE customer service and I honestly would tell someone to run before signing up.

It is JUST ok. Internet is kind of slow, and price is decent. Customer service was pretty good, but I am interested in looking for other brands if the speed/value is better
