Home Internet usage

Worry free! Our plans offer more data than most of our customers use.  

How is AT&T responding to COVID-19?

We’re committed to keeping you connected.

Data usage basics

We measure data in gigabytes. That’s the amount of data you download and upload from all the connected devices in your home each month. Each of our plans comes with a monthly data allowance.

Our internet plans

You will receive an email notice the first time your usage exceeds the monthly data allowance. In subsequent months we will continue to send you alerts if your usage approaches or exceeds the amount of data included in your plan. If you exceed your monthly data plan a third time (bill cycle), and as our agreement provides, we’ll charge you $10 for each additional 50GB of data provided to you that month. The maximum overage charge is $100 a month for AT&T INTERNET℠ or AT&T FIBER℠ and $200 a month for DSL and Fixed Wireless Internet.

A $30 unlimited data allowance is also available for AT&T INTERNET customers to purchase as an optional feature of your internet service. Or if you purchase DIRECTV or U-verse TV service with your internet service on a combined bill or purchase AT&T TV with a qualifying AT&T INTERNET service, you will receive an unlimited usage allowance. That’s a $30 value at no additional charge as part of the discount. This is only available for AT&T INTERNET or AT&T FIBER, not DSL or Fixed Wireless Internet.

More about Internet data usage

How much data do I need?

Some things to keep in mind as you estimate your data:

Downloading an HD movie is very data heavy, while sending a simple text email uses hardly any data at all.

Streaming video or music uses data that can add up quickly.
