Frequently asked questions
What's the best AT&T Internet plan for gaming and streaming?
AT&T offers several high-speed Internet packages, and all of them are capable of handling basic activities, such as browsing the web and online shopping. However, if you're into gaming or streaming, or if you have multiple users in your household, AT&T Fiber is the way to go. Not only is AT&T Fiber fast, but it also doesn't have any data caps, which provides a much higher bandwidth across all devices.
Can I use my phone's WiFi hotspot instead of paying for Internet?
Although there are ways to tether your smartphone to other devices as an alternative to traditional Internet, there a a few reasons why this isn't the best method. First off, when tethered, your connected devices will have a much slower connection than using a router. Also, most wireless plans will cap your data at a certain point, which could severely limit your usage. Additionally, some providers will throttle the speeds provided by your hotspot, which also results in slower connection. Occasional web browsing shouldn't be much of an issue, but if you plan streaming your favorite TV shows and movies, traditional Internet is the way to go.
