    T-Mobile open up Wireless home Internet

    If this works then I am going to fire Comcast as my ISP that is slower than my phone today on Speedtest and more expensive. Not to mention Comcast has had 6 4 to 28 hour outages this year and cost $60 a month. https://www.t-mobile.com/isp/index

    I have Comcast and I had to gigabit package in the reliability is pretty darn good. I can't say the same though for T-Mobile with their data consistency over here

    Is having T-Mobile wireless service required? This would be perfect for someone I know stuck on DSL with 512kbps upload speeds.

    Yes but it has to be available in your market though.

    Comcast suxs. In my area Comcast is lucky to hit 30 Mbps if it doesn’t go out when it is raining. I don’t ever want to give Comcast even one penny of my money I hate them so bad. However they are the only show in my area if you want more than 10 Mbps from AT&T until now. I don’t know how fast T-Mobile will be but it is sure faster than Comcast now with speed test on my phone and cheaper to boot. Sure hope Wireless ISP works since I would love to see Comcast and NBC go bankrupt.

    I live in south Florida and T-Mobile is as good as Verizon or better depending on where you are. AT&T is number 3. If T- Mobile merger goes through then at least in Florida the third most populated state will be owned by T- Mobile.

    Wireless internet service providers in my area suffer due to lack at our density. Even T-Mobile Max's me out at 5 megabytes a second. And I'm not even close to the 50gb cap before I get deprioritized. T-Mobile really really really really has to densify significantly before I even think of using their home internet service when it becomes available in my area.

    Comcast works pretty well for me. But it's expensive. Now with T-Mobile their speeds have to be much more consistent. during rush hour and most of the day the speeds are not that good. I've averaged 5 megabits a second. Even during non-congested periods. and in my area it seems like T-Mobile is doing some coverage expansion and enhancements.

    Then fire T- Mobile and get what works for you. T-Mobile is going to be the First Nation Wide 5G NR network in the nation.

    I have TMobile... T-Mobile works great for my phone but for a home internet provider their Network will need some serious improvement. I'm not saying that they're horrible because they're not. I'm just making a simple statement about the speed that's all. And T-Mobile home internet is not available yet in my area. Because I don't think T-Mobile considers it ready yet for here.

    T-Mobile WiSP will be 5G NR very soon that I admit will only be between 20% to 25% faster with 5G. The hope is that Sprint merger. If the Sprint merger happens it is going to be a blowout increase in bandwidth for WISP. I don’t expect T- Mobile to flip a switch even in 2020 and beat out Comcast. I live in a 40 year old home with water damaged Comcast copper Coax cables that can’t come close to your fiber Comcast cables not just in my neighborhood but for my whole city. Comcast service is in my neighborhood every other day trying to just keep it’s service working. As a board member for two hundred homes HOA, I had a face to face this week with Comcast at the city hall Where Comcast just got a $500 fine By the city for every day about leaving cables above ground since July 10th. That was after about 5 meeting with the mayor that was more that happy to get some extra money from Comcast and make hundreds of votes happy to make Comcast bury their copper cables. Our HOA is in the last year of a 10 Year HOA deal that cost us over $140K a year without ISP for basic cable TV. Comcast thinks the are the only show in town since they have a exclusive cable contract with the city.

    Doesn't Comcast ever think of fixing the lines in your place? But also how is T-Mobile by your place?

    No way to check without agreeing to let t-mobile call you. Why just say yeah or nay. It's s--t like this which really turns me off to a company.
