The problems of sluggish speeds and low data caps—long the bane of rural internet—are finally getting solved with new technologies. T-Mobile’s new LTE home internet service gives customers access to contract-free broadband service at competitive prices. And, unlike satellite internet, it offers unlimited data.
While media attention has been riveted on the skies above for rural internet solutions (hello, Starlink), T-Mobile has been working on the ground to deliver the best broadband for rural areas—without all the hype and rocket launches.
T-Mobile LTE home internet service doesn’t rely on expensive cable or fiber infrastructure, or on billion dollar satellite networks. Instead, T-Mobile internet delivers a wireless home internet connection using cell phone data networks.
In some areas, the T-Mobile home broadband plan delivers 5G speeds and in other areas it’s 4G, depending on where you live. Reviews for the service have been largely positive, with a lot of notice going to the lack of taxes and fees. The $60-per-month subscription price includes all taxes and fees, and T-Mobile advertises no price hikes (although the price did go up from $50 during the beta trial that began last year).1
As long as you have mobile phone service at your home, you have a good chance of being able to get LTE home internet from T-Mobile or another LTE provider. It’s not available in all T-Mobile areas yet, but it’s growing. You can get T-Mobile Home Internet in parts of 27 states and 450 cities and towns in the US.
