T-Mobile has opened up the exclusive T-Mobile Home Internet pilot to Kent, Muskegon and Ottawa county residents.
T-Mobile Home Internet – priced at $50 per month — provides home broadband on the Un-carrier’s LTE network.
With additional capacity unlocked by the merger with Sprint, T-Mobile is preparing to launch 5G Home Internet commercially nationwide, covering more than 50 percent of U.S. households within six years and providing a desperately needed alternative to incumbent cable and telco ISPs.
“Three months into our merger with Sprint, we’re just at the very, very beginning of seeing the incredible benefits of our combined network but the early signs are extremely promising — particularly in rural America — not just for traditional wireless service but also for home broadband,” Mike Sievert, CEO of T-Mobile, said.
Internet service providers and cable and satellite TV companies have the lowest customer satisfaction ratings out of 46 industries according to the American Customer Satisfaction Index.
T-Mobile Home Internet expects to deliver average download speeds around 50 Mbps or more through fixed unlimited wireless service – with no data caps. T-Mobile said there are no annual service contracts and no hidden fees and no equipment costs.
