Some notes on the service:
  • Speeds 20-140 mbps download, 5-30 mbps upload depending on your location, time of day, phase of the moon, usage on the network
  • Sometimes the service completely drops out, at least once a day, and my video meetings stop working for 30-120 seconds.
  • Not great for gaming due to latency.
  • You don't have to pay for the box but you will be charged $350+ if you don't return it in good condition at the end of your service.
  • The box forgets its wifi settings when it loses power.
  • It has a battery but the transition from outlet to battery power instigates a reboot of the box.
  • WiFi on the box is not ideal - connect your own access point via the ethernet ports.
  • The box does NAT + DHCP. You cannot bypass this.
  • May require a hard credit pull.

Quote from eyeofthetiger :
Comcast Xfinity is still better than this
You're seriously comparing these services? Of course Comcast or AT&T Fiber or even Uverse is better than this! The only people signing up for this service are those where Comcast is horribly oversubscribed and unusable during business hours, or whose dedicated Internet service is spotty due to bad lines or unreliable equipment, or people who live in an area not covered by high speed Internet but by some miracle are in-range of T-Mobile internet.

I have been using this since Monday of this week. T-mobile advertised an avg down speed of 25 Mbps, but I have been getting more around 100 Mbps down and 20 Mbps up (YMMV). Although that is good and comparable to my current Spectrum, my teleworking has been more sluggish than usual when using the T-Mobile.

From my quick research, T-Mobile is shipping new devices that are 5G capable, so they are not enabled yet... Also to mention, the new devices they are shipping will not allow you to change any settings except for wifi name/password...

Where are you living. How do you get $10?
After introductory, I was able to negotiate but still over $40.

You are obviously on xfinity's low income plan of $10 a month, that's not really compatible. My bill is almost $90 a month so you have to consider the value

I've been reading that they don't have a cap per se but they can throttle you to a lower speed during "impacted times" after you hit a specific threshold, like 50 GB.

Some of us live where fiber or cable isn't an option.
I have DSL, but am technically beyond the physical limit from the switch.
With no options other than satellite, I asked them to hook me up anyway.
On a good day, I get 3 Mbps, just barely enough to stream a show.

I have a company Verizon hotspot for WFH that gets 25 Mbps.
I had the T-mobile hotspot trial and it was well over 10.
NEITHER company was willing to sell me wireless "home internet," even though I meet their criteria. -The problem being my zip code includes areas that are served by multiple high speed options.
Both would be more than happy to sell me hotspot service, however, with higher total cost and data caps.

I have cricket(AT&T) for cell service, but I quite often miss or drop calls inside my house. (I don't care, because if I'm home, I prefer the landline anyway and I can't beat the cricket multi-line plan I have.)

Can someone give more details and such about pricing options, contract, speeds, etc? The link requires you to give too much personal data which I know they will end up sending me tons of junk mail. Thanks.

1. $50/month with autopay, $55/month without autopay. Taxes and fees are already included.
2. No contract. There is a buyer's remorse period (20 days?)
3. Read my comment earlier for speeds.

It is only available in certain markets at the moment. Not everyone will be eligible due to location.
