at&t now allows you to purchase your own equipment on FTTN

If you go to the ordering page for U-Verse, they give you the option for either $6/mo modem rental or $100 one time charge. This works on TV + HSI, and HSI only plans.

Umm nope, At&t let us purchase our RG for internet service since Uverse was deployed. So... Nothing new there
All I see is new redesign "ordering service" website.

Actually, for the TV/HSI combo it would be new, wouldn't it?

I don't think the option to purchase the gateway has ever been offered for bundles that included TV.

The price does seem unusually low for any of the gateways that handle IPTV. They definitely cost more than 100 dollars.

I'm talking about customers who are ordering both TV and internet. Previously TV and internet customers were forced to rent $6/mo, now they do not have to.

The owning of the modem of was previously only allowed for customers who ordered internet only.

Why would you want to own your WG? I've had uverse for a few years and I have had to replace the wg multiple times...I know it's another 6 bucks a month to rent but it seems well worth it since they will replace it if you have issues.

I saw this yesterday. I don't think it's actually letting you choose. I believe it's just stating that you have two different possibilities. 1. $6 if internet is combined with TV 2. If not, $100 one time internet fee.

I say that because there's no way on the website to actually choose this.

Yeah, Darkness is right. The wording on the site sucks, but I have no doubt it means that if you have TV service as well, you have to pay the $6 a month, or if you forgo TV service, you can buy the gateway.
