So, to throw in some much needed carrier news you might be interested to know, many of you already know when it comes to Fiber-optic delivery of dedicated *synchronous *internet access, AT&T is one of the hardest carriers to beat service and price-wise against any carrier, but they are continually being beat up by the Cable operators who offer low-cost shared asynchronous coax cable which gives consumers super high speeds for download and a more throttled upload - so where AT&T is feeling the "heat" it offers lower rates to combat the cable threat in that area. So, Comcast has proven overall to be the biggest menace to AT&T's plans in given markets where the two telecom giants compete for market share, and as such, AT&T has lowered its Ethernet Internet access rates in those markets to what we are calling "Comcast rates" so to speak.
For customers whose site address is in a city or town not served by Comcast as the default cable operator or franchise holder, such as Mediacom, Charter, Time Warner etc then there are similar but higher cost rates for the same circuit speeds because AT&T is simply not feeling the competitive threat in those areas yet. So, generally AT&T customers are being told by their assigned reps and by call center agents, other consultants etc that they can not qualify for the lower "Comcast rates" because they are not in a geography served by Comcast. However, unknown to most at AT&T, there is a unique "exception" process we can go through if your address proves to be within 500 ft of available AT&T fiber, where we can request Comcast level discounting on Ethernet circuits even in these areas not served by Comcast - if approved, AT&T will give you the Comcast rate.
Currently, a Comcast area client can get 10M w/ 23 channel VoIP PRI and 6900 free long distance minutes for only 587.50 monthly - very hard for any competing carrier to beat this with a dedicated circuit. Pricing starts at 587.50 for 10M + 23 cc PRI and goes up to 1,451.00 for 100M + 23 cc PRI. Inquire if you need further details - thank you Steve
