Why is it that AT&T ran fiber cable through my property and I have 0 access to it? No indication that it will ever be available either.?

    It doesn't have to be AT&T Home internet, it can be a multitude of things, cell service, fiber for interconnects, dark fiber.  You can't just tap into it like a phone line.

    You should ask AT&T.

    It's possible that the fiber is what is known as a trunk. A trunk is used to connect two AT&T facilities and isn't appropriate for "subscriber" connections. It would be like having your driveway connect directly to an Interstate Hwy, where you better be going 70MPH the instant you leave the driveway.

    If they ran cable through your property, they must have an easement. That easement would be noted on the deed. (EDIT: They can't just decide that it would be convenient to run cable through your yard. They must have an easement.)

    If someone on the property ordered cable, that also gives them the right to run cable to the house but not through the property.

    You do know that you physically have to hook up to fiber...and PAY AT&T for monthly access, right? It doesn't just magically hook up by itself
