AT&T Internet Prices Are Going Up, But There is a New AutoPay Discount





AT&T Trucks

AT&T has started to notify some customers that their DSL internet bill will be going up $10 a month starting July 16th, 2023. The good news is you can now save $5 a month off of your home internet if you autopay, but there is a catch. This comes from Cord Cutters News readers, who sent us a copy of the notice on their bills.

Now AT&T is requiring customers with auto pay to use a debit card or bank account to get the $5 a month discount. You must also be using paperless billing.

AT&T is joining a growing number of companies that are limiting auto-pay discounts to debit cards or bank accounts as payment methods. This comes as companies are trying to break free from the high cost of credit card fees.

T-Mobile has also started to notify customers that if they want to keep their auto-pay discount, they need to also switch to a debit card or bank account.

If you are an AT&T Internet customer, keep an eye on your bill as your date for the price change may vary depending on where you live. Also, the amount of money that AT&T Internet will go up can vary by area.

Here is how to signup for AT&T auto pay:


You can use your bank account, debit card, or credit card to sign up for AutoPay.
