T-Mobile promises cheap 5G services
« on: March 22, 2019, 07:09:42 AM »

T-Mobile has just announced that it's starting limited home internet pilot, an invitation-only test for in-home internet service on LTE, which is meant to connect up to 50,000 homes by the end of the year, in both rural and underserved markets in the United States.

The carrier states that due to LTE network and spectrum capacity constraints it can't expand the pilot to more than 50,000 households, but if T-Mobile's pending merger with Sprint is approved, it will most certainly cover more than half of US households with 5G service by 2024.

If you're interested, then you'll be happy to know that the T-Mobile Home Internet pilot is offered exclusively in areas the carrier expects to deliver speeds of around 50 Mbps through fixed unlimited wireless service over LTE (no data caps). The cost is $50 per month with AutoPay, and there are no annual service contracts, no hidden fees, and no equipment costs.

Considering customers pay at least $80 per month for wired in-home broadband service these days, T-Mobile pilot programs seems quite a good deal. Moreover, the carrier claims that if the merger with Sprint is approved, it will be able to cover more than half of US household with 5G broadband service by 2024 possibly at the same price.
