Cost of new install.

What is the ball-park $ figure of the new install these days? Do AT&T require a term commitment? I am located in a Chicago suburb, btw.

Also, I have an old and hopefully still working Speedstream 5360 modem - can these still be provisioned on AT&T network? I use pfsense as firewall / router currently, and am happy with it, would prefer to continue to use it if I can and opt out of using the ISP-provided gateway.

Any feedback is greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance.

The dsl fee is billed in advance, so you'll be billed for a partial month and a full month for the first bill

All the dsl plans can be ordered without a term commitment

The 5360 will work with att dsl

You should be able to decline the modem purchase during or after the dsl order
New coustomers qualify for a 50% off modem purchase
And your 5360/ pfsense as firewall / router can be used

wayjac,

I am not following you here - could you re-phrase/expand a bit?

Thanks for answering my questions!

If you placed the dsl order today and the bill cycle ends on the 30th

You'll billed for the remainder of January and you'll be billed for all of February in advance

If you order uverse internet you are required to purchase the att modem/router

If you order the regular dsl you can use 5360/pfsense as your firewall / router

With the uverse internet pfsense must be used as a second firewall/router because only att modems can authenticate/connect to uverse internet

Depending on where you live U-Verse could be the only thing available to you. DSL is slowly being phased out in favor of Uverse. With Uverse you aren't required to purchase any equipment you can also use your router. Call and see what's in your area.

If its uverse with tv you arent charged for a modem but if its IPDslam (ADSL2+) then have to pay for the modem/router

5360 has no line statistics access, and essential tool when dealing with att comedians, and crumbling infrastructure.
Invest $20 for a used better modem.

OK, so maybe DSL is not my best option.
What about the upfront cost of Uverse installation?
What $ amount to expect?

Thanks everyone!

Uverse is a slightly different form of dsl

The up front costs are about the same.

You must purchase/lease the att equipment.

For U-verse I was charged $289.00, with a $100.00 rebate which is on a prepaid Visa card, which they expect you to put toward your bill.

That would make the U-verse bill total $189.00
This is the installation and cost for U-verse you will owe
Hope that this will help.

It depends on who you talk to and what promos are going on There are times when you can get free installs
