Staying connected is a necessity in today’s time. We cannot go a day without using the internet—whether it is for working from home or attending school online, shopping or banking, surfing the web or scrolling social media, streaming TV or playing competitive online games. But, the luxury and freedom of staying connected to the outside world come at a price. And, no one appreciates a huge monthly internet bill when they've barely received reliable service all month long.

With AT&T, you don't have to worry about your money going down the drain. Because AT&T endeavors to take care of its customers by delivering quality service via its countrywide network that spans 21 states. What’s more, AT&T comes forward with multiple ways for customers to pay their AT&T bill. The provider understands today’s fast-paced life runs like clockwork, and it is essential that consumers should have a variety of methods to pay their monthly dues in whichever way fits their lifestyle better.

In this quick and handy guide, you will learn about the different ways you can pay your AT&T Internet bill with convenience.

How & Where to Pay AT&T Internet Bill?

As we said, AT&T gives you several choices in how you can pay your bill every month.

You can pay the AT&T bill by phone. You can choose to stay old school and make the payment in person. Or go with the traditional snail mail to send in your monthly dues. And, if you love the convenience of doing things online, go ahead and pay your AT&T Internet bill that way.

Plus, you can use bill-paying services such as eBill through your financial institution — credit union or bank. So contact your ISP or check out eBillPlace to determine if your bank allows electronic billing service. Else, you can use doxo to take care of all your billing in one place with one password.

Pay Your AT&T Bill Online

To pay your AT&T Internet, AT&T Home Phone, AT&T Wireless, or even DIRECTV bill, all you need is your myAT&T account — which you can access via https://www.att.com/ or the myAT&T app on your mobile device. But in order to access the account, as a new customer, you first need to create an AT&T user ID. If you have multiple accounts — wireless, internet, TV, or home phone — you’ll be able to use this one user ID to manage all your AT&T accounts and services.

Click here to create your AT&T user ID, and follow these instructions:

  • Select your account type from the listed options.
  • Enter the AT&T account number or AT&T phone number listed for the service.
  • Enter the billing ZIP code.
  • Enter an ID and set a password for your account. Remember your password must not be the same as your ID, your first or last name, your account number, or your email address. It should be at least 8 characters long and must consist of a mix of numbers and letters.
  • You’ll be prompted to enter contact info for the user ID you have created. And asked to set up your security questions and answers. You may also be prompted to accept or decline the paperless billing option. If you choose to go for paperless billing, you’ll be provided with a link via email. Select it to verify your email address.

Now, that you have an AT&T user ID and password, you cannot only pay your bill online but manage all secondary accounts and services you are subscribed to via myAT&T.

The process includes verification of the phone number linked to your AT&T account, verification of your account via the last 4 digits of your SSN, and billing ZIP code.
