If you’ve ever thought about moving to T-Mobile’s 5G Home Internet, now’s the time to try it out.
T-Mobile recently announced a number of new benefits that come with 5G Home Internet, including a 15-day test drive and up to $500 to cover early termination charges with your current service provider.
5 new advantages of T-Mobile 5G Home Internet
In the past year, T-Mobile has launched 5G Home Internet and expanded its 5G network to the best available from the three major cell phone service providers. Now T-Mobile is adding even more benefits to its 5G Home Internet service.
As of May 2022, here are the latest additions to T-Mobile 5G Home Internet†
One of the worst things about switching ISPs (other than shopping for a new plan) is whether the new service will really be any better.
1. Test drive
Happy, you can now try Home Internet for 15 days before canceling your current Internet service. This is a great way to make sure T-Mobile Home Internet works for you before you let go of your existing service.
To get started, go to T-Mobile’s website and make sure Home Internet is available at your address. After that, you can sign up for the service as usual. If you’re not happy, you can cancel the service within 15 days, return the gateway device, and be charged nothing, according to a recent T-Mobile press release.
2. Avoid early termination charges
If you’re locked into a contract with an Internet Service Provider (ISP), early termination charges can be another reason not to switch. Now T-Mobile allows you to cancel your current contract at any time by: covers any early termination fees up to $500 when you switch to Home Internet.
3. Price Lock
Many ISPs advertise online with promotional prices. You sign up for one monthly rate, but after 12 or 24 months, that monthly rate can rise to 30% or more. You don’t have to worry about this at T-Mobile.
T-Mobile has implemented what it calls ‘Price Lock’, which locks down both home and business internet plans for $50 per month with no monthly taxes or fees as long as you are a customer.
4. Savings on Family Plan
T-Mobile customers with a Magenta MAX family plan can now add Home Internet as if it were just another phone line. That locks the price at $30 per month, which is a savings of $240 per year on Home Internet!
T-Mobile Magenta MAX is a great phone plan for families who really need unlimited data. At Clark.com, T-Mobile Magenta MAX even holds the title for the best unlimited data plan overall. It has also been voted the best unlimited data plan for seniors with a discount of 55+.
You can check out the details of the Magenta MAX plan here on T-Mobile’s website.
5. T-Mobile Tuesdays
T-Mobile has a five-year tradition of handing out “more than $1.5 billion in acknowledgments” to customers through various offers and promotions, according to the recent press release.
T-Mobile has expanded these offers to make them available to all T-Mobile customers, even if they don’t have a phone plan. On May 10, 2022, T-Mobile Tuesday’s offers included $50 off any streaming device and 50% off YouTube TV for an entire year. Read more about T-Mobile Tuesdays here.

About T-Mobile 5G Home Internet
If you are unfamiliar with T-Mobile Home Internet, you should know that it works a little differently than standard Internet plans because it is a fixed wireless service.
T-Mobile Home Internet provides access to high-speed 4G LTE or 5G service in your area through a gateway device that acts as a router and modem. The gateway device converts the signal to WiFi that you can use on your smartphone, computer, tablet and other devices.
While download speeds may be slightly slower than traditional internet, T-Mobile’s 5G network provides access to some of the fastest speeds available compared to other cellular service providers. According to the site, T-Mobile Home Internet customers can expect download speeds of around 35-115 Mbps.
|Plan||Price||Download Speeds||contracts||Extra cost||availabilty|
|5G internet at home||$50 with auto pay||35-115Mbps||No||No||Checking availability|
T-Mobile currently offers only one internet subscription for the home; it costs $50 per month with autopay. Beginning in May 2022, you can also add Home Internet to an existing Magenta MAX family plan, bringing the price down to $30 per month.
