T-Mobile Launches a Backup Home Internet Service to Make Sure You Are Always Online For $20 a Month





Do you need to always make sure you are online? Do you work from home and are worried about internet outages costing you at work? Now, starting at just $20 a month for select T-Mobile customers, you can get a backup Home Internet plan to keep you connected using T-Mobile’s 5G network.

The service costs $30 a month with AutoPay, but if you have an eligible T-Mobile voice line, you can get the service for just $20 a month with autoplay. This service will give you up to 130 GB of 5G data each month.

The service is not meant to be your primary internet but it seems to be targeting customers who work from home and want to make sure they are always online.

Here is how T-Mobile describes this service:

  • 130 GB of 5G data a month.  Enough to keep a typical household connected with Wi-Fi for up to seven days a month when their primary internet service goes down.  
  • A 5G gateway included at no extra cost. There are NO monthly equipment fees at T-Mobile! Home Internet Backup customers get all the equipment they need, without paying a penny more.
  • Fast and easy setup. Go from box to browsing in 15 minutes or less with a simple self-install process. And when that primary connection goes down, quickly switch over to the T-Mobile Wi-Fi signal for connectivity.  

Terms and Conditions:

During congestion, customers on these plans may notice speeds lower than other customers and further reduction if using >1.2TB/mo., due to data prioritization. After 130GB monthly data allotment, speeds up to 600Kbps. Not available in all areas. $35 device connection charge due at sale. Regulatory fees included in monthly price for qualified accounts. Savings after $10 monthly bill credit. Limited-time offer; subject to change. Qualifying credit, voice line; and new Home Internet Backup Internet line required. If you have cancelled Internet lines in past 90 days, you may need to reactivate them first. AutoPay requires bank account or debit card, otherwise $5 more/line/mo. Price Lock guarantees regular monthly rate plan price of current internet data for new lines with qualifying service (the Home Internet Backup plan is not eligible for Price Lock). T-Mobile will pay your final monthly recurring service charge if we raise your rate and you tell us you are leaving within 60 days. See 5G device, coverage, & access details at T-Mobile.com.
