Are you new to Denver and looking to get set up with a wireless cell phone and internet plan? Or maybe you’re a long-time resident who is looking to change service providers or upgrade their existing services.
No matter what your situation is, if you’re looking for internet, cell phone or TV service, AT&T is a good service provider to go with. However, based on our testing, as the best internet service providers in Denver we highly recommend companies CenturyLink and Comcast.
AT&T Inc. is an American multinational telecommunications conglomerate headquartered in downtown Dallas, Texas. It is the largest telecommunications company in the world by revenue and the 17th-largest telecom operator on the planet with 130.4 million mobile customers.
AT&T also provides a broadband subscription television service through DirecTV (acquired in 2015) and a fiber optic subscription television service with AT&T U-verse.
American Telephone and Telegraph Company (AT&T) was established in 1885. It was originally a subsidiary of the Bell Telephone Company, founded by Alexander Graham Bell after his invention of the telephone.
In 1899 AT&T acquired the Bell Company for legal reasons, leaving AT&T as the main company. AT&T offers three main services to its customers: wireless (cell phone), internet and TV. In the last year, they were investing hundreds of milion in Denver to improve coverage,reliability and speed (read more about it), so this company belongs to better ISPs in this city.
AT&T is the second largest provider of mobile telephone services in the United States, behind Verizon Wireless. AT&T provides a wide selection of plans and devices for customers to choose from. The official website currently has a selection of 31 cell phones ranging from the new iPhone 7 to simple flip phones.
AT&T also offers a very wide selection of tablets and accessories.
Of course, every cell phone needs a service plan to be useful. They have the most reliable network in the nation. According to the 2016 Nielsen Certified Data Network Score, the company has the best mobile network in the United States.
Currently, they are only advertising one talk text and data plan; the Mobile Share Advantage Plan.
How this plan works is up to ten devices share one pool of monthly data, and each user has unlimited monthly talk and text. The monthly cost of the plan increases with the number of devices and the allotment of data.
This plan is very convenient for families because every device is under one bill, and AT&T makes it very easy to change the allotment of data on the plan. So if one month your family will only need 5GB of data but the next you’ll need 8GB, it’s not a problem.
Mobile Share Advantage makes it much easier for customers to manage their monthly bill, and make adjustments according to how much data they need. Since talking and texting are unlimited, you won’t need to worry about that. There is a good review about this plan published on http://www.pcworld.com/article/3109316/mobile/att-mobile-share-advantage-mimics-t-mobile-dropping-overages-in-favor-of-throttling.html.
In recent years, AT&T has made an effort to increase its media holdings by acquiring DirecTV in July 2015 for $48.5 billion and announcing a deal to buy Time Warner for $85 billion.
AT&T provides broadband subscription television services through DirecTV, offering customers great cable television service at a very affordable price.
DirecTV is currently promoting plans starting at $35 per month which include bonuses like equipment for up to four rooms, HD DVR service, and premium channels like HBO and Showcase for 3 months at no extra cost.
In addition to DirecTV, this company offers an internet service which runs on the incredible powers of fiber optics. This service is called U-verse TV. U-verse allows customers to access over 234 channels in brilliant HD, record up to 4 shows at once with Total Home DVR, and stream shows virtually anywhere you go on your phone, tablet, or computer. U-verse plans range from $50 to $125 per month.
They offer three main internet services: DSL, WiFi, and Fiber Optics. All of the internet services AT&T provides are incredibly reliable.
DSL is the slowest internet service this company provides, with speeds ranging from 200 Kbps (kilobytes per second) with their least-expensive internet plan to 6 Mbps (megabytes per second) with their top-tier DSL plan. This is very slow service.
WiFi speeds in Denver range from 6.1 Mbps to 75 Mbps, which is considered incredibly high-speed for a Wifi connection.
And lastly, we have AT&T Fiber, with bandwidth ranges of 100 Mbps to a mind-blowing 1000 Mbps. At that speed, you could download a 2-hour HD movie in just 4 seconds! Internet plans range from $30 per month for DSL service to $80 per month for Fiber.
If you’re interested in any combination of the services I’ve mentioned, AT&T offers bundle deals which have a great value.
