Back in March 2019, T-Mobile announced that they have started to test home internet services using LTE. At the time, this program offered LTE home internet to 50,000 households to begin testing out T-Mobile's hardware ahead of their 5G home internet services launch. Now T-Mobile has opened its $50 a month unlimited home internet service up to everyone (subject to network availability).

"We've tripled our LTE coverage as we work to create a network where everyone in America has access to fast and reliable home internet, no matter where they live." T-Mobile says in a statement on its website.

This new service will offer 50 Mbps down home internet (due to "LTE network and spectrum capacity constraints") for $50 a month with no data cap. T-Mobile is quick to add that the new 5G home internet services will be far faster when it launches. T-Mobile says this service comes with no annual contracts, no data caps, no hidden fees, no price hikes, and no hardware costs.

This could be an excellent option for Americans living in markets with data caps. Using T-Mobile Home Internet could give you an opportunity to stream all you want without worrying about your data cap.

FAQ:
Can I use the LTE Wi-Fi Gateway elsewhere, like my vacation home?
No. The T-Mobile Home Internet LTE Wi-Fi Gateway will be geographically locked to your specified home's location so you won't be able to move it from one home to another.

Anybody know if there's a soft cap?
From their T&C:
Further, to provide the best possible on-device experience for the most possible customers on T-Mobile branded plans and minimize capacity issues and degradation in network performance, we may, without advance notice, take any actions necessary to manage our network on a content-agnostic basis, including prioritizing all on-device data over Smartphone Mobile HotSpot (tethering) data and, for the vast majority of Rate Plans, further prioritizing the data usage of a small percentage of heavy data users using more than 50GB of data in a billing cycle, below that of all other customers in times and locations where there are competing customer demands for network resources, for the remainder of the billing cycle.

Wonder how stable this would be with gaming / streaming if it gains traction and more households start using it.

I would very much like to have this as a reliable option to the monopoly of a utility we have as our internet provider.

For people without Fiber optic option, this will be great. I have Verizon Fios now but will definitely consider T-mobile when they roll out 5G service

Pretty sick of cutting off my data 3 weeks into the month because of xfinity. Seems like a good deal to me if available here and it won't affect gaming much.

You'd want to try it out and make sure T-Mobile gets good speeds at your house. It's good if you're in the city but if you're at all rural probably not going to be great speeds/signal.

They offered a 30 day trial in my area a few months ago. It worked great I got 60 - 90 mbps depending on the time of the day. The only problem is that you cannot do any port forwarding. So if you like to remote into your home network youre SOL

Anyone know what the upload speed will be? I can't find any info for that.

I'm getting 75/16 just now using my phone. I'd be ecstatic with that so I could shove Cox's data caps where the sun don't shine.

It will be a mobile service. They won't run cable to your house, just give you a LTE gateway (like a modem) and you will get Internet from their LTE network. However, the backbone of their cell tower is fiber though.

I believe they don't care where you gonna move as long as you have coverage.

100% location and congestion dependent. I've had upload speeds on T-Mobile range from 0.5mbps up to about 30 mbps.
