T-Mobile introduces a prepaid version of its 5G home internet

2022-03-10 19:03 by


T-Mobile has announced a new plan for its 5G home internet service, which won't require applicants to undergo a credit check. The prepaid service will carry T-Mobile's Metro branding, and customers will be able to sign up for it at Metro retail locations. This brings a prepaid option to T-Mobile's $50 a month service, which doesn't have any data caps or contracts, which could be appealing to users who don't have great internet options available from traditional ISPs.

T-Mobile says the modem Metro users will get is the same as the ones provided to those who sign up directly from T-Mobile. The carrier tells CNET that the broadband experience should be the same regardless of whether you signed up through T-Mobile or through Metro. T-Mobile has touted that "typical" home broadband download speeds should be between 35-115 Mbps.

There is, however, one difference between the T-Mobile and Metro versions of Home Internet. T-Mobile is not running any credit checks for those signing up at Metro. Instead, it is charging a one-time $99 equipment fee to purchase the modem/router.

T-Mobile 5G Home Internet is currently available to more than 30 million homes nationwide, for both prepaid and postpaid customers. And access has recently expanded across the Southeast, Texas, Indiana, Kentucky and Ohio. Availability is based on network capacity, which is increasing all the time. To see if Home Internet is available for your home, visit your local Metro by T-Mobile store.
