    • The average time for installation is four hours, but can vary based on your order or complex wiring needs in your home.
    • If you do not own your premises, obtain any necessary permission to allow AT&T to use the wiring inside your unit and to make alterations to the property if needed for installation prior to your installation date.
    • Make sure all connections for your TV/computers are visible, because your installer does not move furniture.
  • If installing yourself, you will receive your equipment 1-2 days prior to your Due Date. Simply follow the instructions included in the guide of your self-installation kit.
    • Residential inside wiring does not always support customer self-installation. 
    • A telephone jack is required near your modem or wireless gateway to ensure your Internet services work properly.
  • If you cannot complete the self-install, or would like additional jacks installed, we can arrange a professional technician to complete the installation and you will be charged a fee.
