    AT&T has kicked off a new Apple TV 4K promotion, this one tied to the company's Fiber Internet service. For the month of February, anyone who signs up for AT&T Fiber Internet 300 or Fiber Internet 1000 will have the chance to get a 32GB Apple TV 4K at no cost. Shoppers should note that the deal is contingent upon AT&T Fiber being available in your area.

    AT&T Fiber Internet 300 costs $70/month and Fiber Internet 1000 costs $90/month, and both plans require customers to sign up for a twelve-month agreement. For Fiber Internet 300, customers will have a 1TB monthly data cap, and a $10 charge for each additional 50GB of data they need if they exceed their cap. Fiber Internet 1000 has no data cap.

    To get the new deal, head to ATT.com, click "Check Availability," and enter your address. Those eligible for the deal and in an area supported by AT&T Fiber will then see the plans available to purchase. Choose either the 300 Mbps or 1000 Mbps tier, and during the checkout screen enter the promo code GET4KTV to add the Apple TV 4K to your order at no additional cost.

    If you've been planning to switch to Fiber Internet, AT&T's new promo is a great chance to save a lot of money on a brand-new Apple TV 4K. At 32GB, these models currently sell for around $170 at places like B&H Photo.

    AT&T previously offered a notable discount on the 32GB Apple TV 4K during a DirecTV Now promotion, which required customers to prepay for 3 months of DirecTV Now at $105 to get an Apple TV at no cost. The company has since ended this offer, and during a recent earnings report AT&T stated that DirecTV Now saw a large decline in subscribers after the deal ended.

    Anyone interested in the new offer should visit AT&T's website to browse Fiber Internet packages, and be sure to head to our full Deals Roundup to check out more sales happening this week.

    I wonder if the 300Mbps and the 1000 Mbps are actual speeds or if this is branded similar to AT&T 5G

    Verizon FIOS Gigabit is $79.99 and comes with cable channels.

    What am I missing that AT&T thinks will get people to pay more than that for just data?

    I wished I had more options where I live. It's basically Spectrum and AT&T (no fiber).
    So I am stuck with Spectrum for many years already.
    FIOS would be nice to break the monopoly but I don't see this changing anytime soon.

    That's because...
    1. People love free stuff.
    2. AT&T is a junk company that doesn't give a rip about keeping customers.

    Their fiber optic cables are made from braided unicorn manes. 1000Mbps is the minimum speed you will see.

    The plans seem to be capped. And worth noting! see below as they mention in their details.
    I find this practice to be not customer oriented at all.

    "Internet Data Allowances
    Over the last few years we′ve experienced a dramatic increase in the amount of data being sent over our network. Most of this increase has been driven by only a small percentage of our network′s users. So to keep the online experience as optimal as possible for all of our customers, each of our Internet plans comes with a monthly data allowance.

    Our data plans offer far more bandwidth than the average person ever uses. If you get close to your monthly data allowance, we′ll notify you several times. If you happen to exceed your data allowance for a third time, we′ll automatically add 50GB for $10 to your monthly data limit, not to exceed a maximum of $100."

    Are you my neighbor? This is my exact situation and it's awful. Total illusion of choice.

    Correct me if I’m wrong, but there’s no area where AT&T fiber and Verizon FIOS compete with each other.

    actual speeds. It's real fiber. I have AT&T Fiber myself and have tested it at over 1 Gbps up and down to non-AT&T servers. Now, if only I could figure out why DirecTV on demand / PPV channels still buffer for many minutes when the box is hard wired directly to the AT&T gateway. So your mileage may vary.

    If you purchase our plan, the same network, physical cable, plus our expensive box, No Data Caps. Doing business with payday loan sharks could be less painful.

    There is no cap on the 1000 plan.

    Wish this was an incentive for people switching plans. I have the 100mb fiber plan and my promotions expired so I can now get the 300mb for the same price as the 100mb.

    I have the 1000 plan. I consistently get ~940Mbps up and down, with 1-2ms ping. But it could very based on location I suppose. Also the 1000 plan doesn't have a data cap.

    Many areas that have ATT do not have FIOS.

    The tp tier has no caps, and if you are liek me and use 5TB or more a month it's a better deal than the 300 since an unlimited cap of 100 or 300 is an additional $30, making a comparable pricing structure 80 - 100 - 90.

    I get around 200 - 300 mbs via my Orbi all through my house. Haven't tried a ethernet connection yet.

    Fat chance of getting that 79.99 plan for that price to include TV. Verizon requires a cable box ($$) and you pay broadcast taxes and fees ($$). It easily adds $15 or more to the bill.

    Internet only is fee free, for both AT&T and Verizon. That’s how they get you on those TV bundles. They need more bodies paying those broadcast fees.

    I’ve been using AT&T 1Gbps plan for 3 years. The only time I could feel the speed was when I downloaded iOS/MacOS files from Apple. Youtube has been lagging constantly. There is no benefit for the high speed but I couldn’t switch to 300Mbps plan because AT&T increased the price. I’m paying $70/month for 1Gbps but the 300Mbps plan is $70 now.

    Those prices are location specific.

    The area that offers AT&T fiber might ha e higher average prices.

    Plus, FiOS advertised prices do not include taxes, fees, sport access fees, and equipment which could easily increase the monthly cost by more than $30.

    We also live in a world where people pay for internet speeds that they will hardly ever utilize.

    100Mbps more more than enough for most ppl imo.

    I got so fed up with Comcast's cable TV fees (broadcast TV fee went from $1.50 a few years to TEN FREAKING DOLLARS now) that I called them up and cancelled cable altogether. I've had Comcast cable for 20 years. So I made a bit of a polite fuss and asked for a deal on 250mbps internet, which I got for $60/month for a year. No sports fees, no broadcast fees, nothing. That's the total price.

    That's the best I can do in my neighborhood in Chicago. The only other option is AT&T which is about $10 less but tops out at 25mbps. That's insulting.
    --- Post Merged, Feb 11, 2019 ---
    Honest question, are there any providers that provide fast speeds that don't have a data cap? Comcast has 1TB here in Chicago. They do let you go over two months a year, which is kinda nice, but still.

    You can get AT&T fiber without a data cap. I am using the service without a cap.
    --- Post Merged, Feb 11, 2019 ---
    I almost forgot to mention. AT&T used to (recently) advertise 1GB down / upload speed with their 1GB fiber service, They have since amended their advertising and policy to state that anything 600 and above is within the so-called margin of error / service, even though you are paying for 1GB service.
