To comfortably stream TV, you'll want to be using at least broadband download speed, which is 25 Mbps according to the Federal Communications Commission (FCC). T-Mobile home internet delivers anywhere between 33 and 182 Mbps, so as long as your local cell tower isn't overcrowded, you should be able to stream TV with T-Mobile Home Internet without buffering.
Of course, download speed isn't the only thing that matters when streaming. And T-Mobile offers some specifics discounts that make streaming even better.
Does T-Mobile pay for YouTube TV?
You can get $10 off a YouTube TV subscription if you sign up for, or are a current customer of, T-Mobile wireless or T-Mobile Home Internet. If you're a current YouTube TV customer and want to claim your discount, you'll need to cancel your account and sign up again through T-Mobile to get it.
YouTube TV is also the new home for NFL SUNDAY TICKET, so you're getting a pretty sweet deal. Just remember that if you switch from T-Mobile wireless or T-Mobile Home Internet, you'll lose your YouTube TV discount too.
Is YouTube free on T-Mobile?
You can get YouTube Premium free (not to be confused with the live TV streaming service YouTube TV, mentioned above) for 3 months with T-Mobile. YouTube Premium removes ads from your YouTube watch experience and allows you to keep listening to videos even after you've closed the app. Just keep in mind that after the free period, YouTube Premium costs $11.99/mo.
And in case you're wondering, yes, you can actually get both the YouTube TV $10/mo. off discount and the YouTube Premium free trial.
Yes, T-Mobile Home Internet is a good option for rural areas or homes with few options. T-Mobile’s service is reliable and offers steady (although not dizzyingly fast) speeds and an unlimited amount of data. Monthly service includes the use of a modem/router that creates a Wi-Fi home network, so there are no equipment costs.
In many rural areas, T-Mobile Home Internet tops any other internet option. As with any LTE service, your speed can vary based on your proximity to T-Mobile cell phone towers. This is why 4G LTE home internet service providers advertise “speeds up to” a certain number of megabits per second (Mbps).
T-Mobile advertises that speeds are usually 25 Mbps or more, with the disclaimer that actual speeds will vary. And speeds will be increasing in the years ahead. 5G is several years away for most rural areas, but once it expands across the nation, 5G networks will deliver even faster speeds for T-Mobile customers.3
You will want to make sure that you can get good T-Mobile reception in your area, so check T-Mobile coverage maps and talk to a T-Mobile representative for specific information (such as the closest T-Mobile tower to your home).
