The American telecommunications giant AT&T is starting to offer unreal internet speeds to their customers, while at the same time the vast majority of Greeks is still surfing with ADSL.
The company is undergoing upgrades at its existing fiber cable lines, and now gives the opportunity to its network users to choose between 2 and 5 Gbps options!
If you’re not familiar with the module, 1 Gbps is 1.000 Mbps.
Therefore, it’s 2.000 and 5.000 Mbps respectively, when even 100 is considered a luxury in Greece.
Additionally, thanks to the wiring’s nature, the applied speeds are absolutely symmetrical both ways.
That translates to identical packet download and upload transfer speeds, thus we ‘re talking 2/2 and 5/5 Gbps (down/up) for each case.
This spectacular performance requires new equipment with Wi-Fi 6 protocol support, which is though provided for free by AT&T to whoever applies for one of the available plans.
The cost for all of these is formed at 110$ / month for the 2 Gbps plan, and 180$ / month for the 5 Gbps one.
For the sake of comparison, the highest nation-wide available broadband internet speed in Greece is 200 Mbps, provided by COSMOTE at the price of 51,9€, which is roughly 60$.
