The number of broadband subscriptions in the U.S. is expected to reach 92 million in 2020, according to the Institute for Local Self-Reliance (ILSR), and a 2015 study by the National Cable and Telecommunications Association (NCTA) suggested that broadband subscriptions would account for more than 90 percent of all U.S. households in 2020.

Cord-Cutters and Drones
Nestled beneath the Golden Gate Bridge, AT&T’s San Francisco Bay Area network is called AT&T Fiber to the Home. For years, AT&T Fiber to the Home has offered gigabit speeds to residents of San Francisco and Silicon Valley. But its successor, AT&T U-verse, is now offering 10 gigabit speeds to customers living in Northern California. The service will become available in October of this year. According to the website, AT&T U-verse is available to homes, offices, schools and businesses with a fiber installation. It costs $120 a month and $60 for businesses. (Source: AT&T U-verse FAQ) But that isn’t enough for some. Last year, more than 3 million Americans cut the cord with cable TV and internet services. That’s the most in at least 25 years. The Internet and TV companies are trying to get people back online with a mixture of broadband and TV. The idea is that if you can get Internet, you can watch television.
The biggest of those players is AT&T. Back in July, the company launched its U-verse GigaPower Internet service. If you want high-speed internet, U-verse GigaPower offers service in 11 markets. It also offers customers HD cable and a limited amount of Internet service. And you get a discount if you sign up early. The new AT&T deal does not come with TV.
The new AT&T deal also comes with a new pricing plan. AT&T is offering a 25-megabit plan that offers 1 gigabit speeds for $25 a month, and then you can upgrade to gigabit speeds for $10 a month. If you want to subscribe to both the new Internet and TV offerings, you’ll need to purchase the two services in order, or split the bill. Here’s a rundown of the new AT&T pricing for the full month of April.
For a 25-Mbps connection, the unlimited Internet tier is $50 a month with a 1-gigabit-per-second download speed and 6-gigabit-per-second upload speed, and a 1-terabyte-per-month data plan is $90. (That’s a $150 monthly cost.)
