T-Mobile 5G Home Internet Vs Verizon 5G Home Internet—Here Is Everything You Need to Know





In 2024 two of the fastest growing home Internet providers are T-Mobile and Verizon with their 5G Internet services. So, which one is right for you and what do you need to know? Here is a quick breakdown of the two options.



T-Mobile’s 5G Internet service skips equipment rentals and is available for $40 per month with no contracts if you have a premium voice line from T-Mobile.

Other plans include $50 a month if you have a regular wireless phone plan. If you do not have a plan with T-Mobile, it will cost you $60 a month.

T-Mobile also has a Travelers Plan that starts at $160 a month and lets you take your 5G Home Internet with you anywhere you go.

NOTE: Both prices include a discount for autopay.


Verizon’s 5G Home starts at $35, offers a Wi-Fi 6 router, and comes with a 2-year price guarantee. This plan is $60 a month without a wireless plan.

Verizon’s 5G Home Plus starts at $45, offers a Wi-Fi 6 router, and comes with a 3-year price guarantee along with Verizon’s unlimited cloud backup. This plan is $80 a month without a wireless plan.

NOTE: Both prices include a discount for autopay.



T-Mobile says their service could slow you down if you use over 1.2 TB of space a month until the start of the next month.


Verizon’s 5G Home Internet is data cap free.


Both companies offer free hardware. T-Mobile is offering a new improved version with a mesh network for an extra fee. That plan will cost $70 a month for the upgraded router and service.


Speed will depend on where you live, but in testing both services offered between 100 Mbps down and 300 Mbps down on average. This is more than enough to stream multiple 4K streams of Netflix at the same time.

NOTE: Your experience may vary higher or lower depending on where you live and how strong your signal is.

Final Thoughts

With the price points you can see why millions of Americans have switched to Verizon’s 5G Home Internet or T-Mobile’s 5G Home Internet. Both are solid options, but you will want to use the plan that you also get your wireless plan from to get the best deal.
