Are you rooted?

Also, try going into recovery and clear the cache partition. To do that, turn your phone off, then turn it on by holding volume up, home, and power. Do this until you see a little bit of blue text in the upper left and then let go. You'll get a screen with the Android logo and you'll see some blue text. Use the volume keys to scroll down to clear cache and use power to send the command. Then go back to reboot unit and try applying your OTA again.

Would you consider flashing the new firmware through Odin? In that case, the issue would be solved definitely, and you could get the phone unbranded.

Default samsung server issue

The file to download is 600-800 MB in size (yes Mega Bytes). It will take an hour or more to download even for a good internet connection. For a lot of people with less than perfect connection, it's likely that the download will break mid-way. What's more? the server do not support resume.
I suggest to bring your phone to the authorized service shop/center.

Is there a way to get the AT&T update via wired connection/PC/Kies?

I also keep having this issue where it says "Connecting to DM Server" and then nothing seems to happen. Then when I check again later it tells me to buzz off and that I have to wait 24 hours to check again.
