Have you been thinking about switching to T-Mobile home internet? Want to get a free 50″ 4K TV? Today, T-Mobile started to offer free 4K 50″ TVs with a built-in Fire TV if you switch to T-Mobile 5G Home Internet and pay for two months. You do need to hurry, though, as this offer ends on November 29, 2023.
T-Mobile is also offering its 5G Home Internet service for just $30 a month for any T-Mobile wireless customer. This price is reportedly good as long as you remain a 5G Home Internet customer. In the past you needed to be on select T-Mobile home wireless plans to get this price now, anyone with a T-Mobile plan can get it.
Here is how T-Mobile describes this offer:

So, would T-Mobile TG Home Internet be a good option for you? Let’s break down everything you need to know about the service.
T-Mobile’s 5G internet service skips equipment rentals and is available for $50/month with no contracts. If you have a Go5G Plus or Magenta Max plan from T-Mobile, you may qualify to get T-Mobile Home Internet for just $30 a month.
T-Mobile advertised the service as a 100 Mbps down speed. In our recent testing, we regularly got over 200 Mbps down, but sometimes it would fall into the 100 Mbps range.
Speeds for T-Mobile Home Internet will vary depending on where you live. So, I may get 200 Mbps down, but your speed may be different.
Is T-Mobile 5G Home Internet Fast Enough For Streaming?
Yes, we were able to stream Amazon, Paramount+, YouTube TV, and more without issues using T-Mobile’s 5G Home Internet.
There are a few services that lock you into a home IP location. Because T-Mobile’s Home Internet changes your IP address often, it makes using Hulu with Live TV, for example, very difficult.
Most streaming services need 15 Mbps to 20 Mbps for a 4K stream. Even at just 100 Mbps, you should easily be able to stream the movies and TV shows you want, even at 4K.
