You’ll pay more for privacy with AT&T’s gigabit broadband
AT&T launched its U-verse with AT&T GigaPower broadband network in Kansas City, Mo., over the weekend, with prices beginning at $70 per month. But there’s a catch: If you want AT&T to “ignore” what you’re doing online, you’ll pay almost $30 more per month for the privilege.
U-Verse with AT&T GigaPower previously went live in Austin, Tex., and in parts of North Carolina. The service that went live Sunday in Kansas City includes suburbs in both Kansas and Missouri. The pricing tiers seem relatively simple, beginning at $70 per month for gigabit Internet service; $120 per month to add TV, including HBO; and $150 for gigabit Internet service, TV, and VoIP phone.
