How do I get AT&T fiber at my house when they don't offer it yet?

Three options…. No particular order

Fastest method is relocation to where the desired service is available, currently over 20 million residential addresses have FTTP option and the take rate is around 37% or 7.5 million fiber subscribers means 12.5 million address have the service option but not yet subscribed / installed. 

Potentially most expensive depending on your financial situation is Dedicated Business Fiber, plan on $100,000 for installation and 3 to 4 years of service based upon the speed tier you choose. DBF is a 1:1 fiber connection from the main source to your address, no other addresses provided for. 

Last and most common, WAIT / SEE…. There is still about 30 months left of the current 5 year fiber build out to reach 30 million addresses which will be 25+ million residential with about 7+ million being MDU of apartment/ condo complexes, 4 million addresses of small businesses and 1 million Enterprises or Large Businesses. 

Zip Code? Some zip code are over 80% fiber while others are less than 20%… none are 100% fiber. My zip code is currently estimated at 6000 fiber out of potential 13500 residential, there is an additional 1500 addresses not within ATT footprint but is CenturyLink (Lumen) footprint. 

edit… residential fiber depending on splitter assigned is a 1:32 or 1:64 shared connection on single fiber stand back to the Central Office, compared to DBI is that 1:1 connection.

Just my thoughts
