T-Mobile has expanded its 5G Home Internet service to 51 markets across Florida, Georgia, North Carolina and South Carolina.
Some customers will see average download speeds of more than 100 Mbps, and the minimum average speed will be at least 25 Mbps “depending on location, signal strength and availability, time of day, and other factors,” T-Mobile said.
When T-Mobile initially launched Home Internet, it used the company’s LTE network, but since then the carrier launched a 5G version of the offering in some markets. According to the T-Mobile website, “T-Mobile Home Internet service makes use of the same great 5G network T-Mobile smartphones run on, depending on signal availability at your eligible address.”
For a limited time, people signing up for Home Internet will get $10 off “for life,” the company said. The regular price is $60 a month with AutoPay.

“Today, thousands more households now have access to fast, unlimited high-speed internet,” Dow Draper, T-Mobile’s Executive Vice President of Emerging Products, said in a press release. “We’re expanding access in places that have never had a real choice when it comes to home broadband, where people are fed up with cable and telco ISPs,”
T-Mobile began trialing Home Internet using LTE in 2019. In October 2020, the company launched the offering in 450 markets. In April, the company launched the 5G version of the offering.
