What are the speed differences between DSL, Copper and Fiber technologies?
Your internet or Wi-Fi speed will depend on several key things – your internet service provider or ISP, which plan or service you have, and the way your home network is set-up. The best way to understand internet speeds is by thinking in terms of upload and download speeds. As an example, AT&T Fiber uses fiber optic technology which provides symmetrical download and upload speeds – and up to 5 Gbps in select areas which is among the fastest of major internet service providers. DSL and Copper technologies are slower than Fiber technology.
*Fastest among major internet service providers, based on 5Gbps offering. Internet speed claims represent maximum wired network service capability speeds to the home & recommended setup. Actual customer speeds are not guaranteed. Single device wired speed maximum 4.7Gbps. For more info go to www.att.com/speed101

However, if you ever want to unlock your AT&T phone for any reason, you can submit a request here. Double-check that you meet all the requirements for AT&T to release your phone off their network. Once your phone is unlocked, it’ll be able to operate on another compatible wireless network.

What is a mobile hotspot device?
A mobile hotspot device is a way for you to bring a private Internet connection wherever you go by using an ad hoc wireless access point. This access point, or your mobile hotspot device, works by sharing your phone’s cellular data to provide you with a private connection outside of your home. Depending on your data plan, a mobile hotspot device can support multiple devices at once so that you can stay connected to the Internet in more places.
