T-Mobile, the second-largest wireless carrier in the United States, announced plans to launch its home Internet service product for consumers. At its Un-carrier Next event on Wednesday, T-Mobile unveiled detailed plans to acquire Comcast, Charter, rural broadband providers as well as AT & T and Verizon in the home broadband sector. According to T-Mobile, the service will be made available to 30 million Americans to launch in the 48 contiguous states and Hawaii. There are also no taxes, contracts or equipment fees for 4G / 5G modem rental, which doubles as a Wi-Fi router, and the service comes with an “expected” average download speed of 100Mbps.
While the airline has increased the price of its pilot program from $50 to $60 per month for new customers, T-Mobile has announced that of the 30 million people who want to use the service, 10 million are located in rural America. Prospective customers can check if their address is eligible for the service on T-Mobile’s website. It has also been noted that intended users do not need to be a T-Mobile mobile customer to sign up for the service, and should they decide to cancel the service, they only need to return the router to the airline.
