T-Mobile just made its 5G Home Internet plan cheaper; here’s the new price

T-Mobile, the nation’s third-largest carrier, recently dropped the price of its home internet plan. The company is also offering a prepaid Mastercard for customers who sign up for the service.

As reported by CNET, the T-Mobile Home Internet plan is decreasing in price from $60 to $50 per month. This new rate includes a $5 monthly discount for enrolling in automatic payments. Customers can save up to $20 monthly when bundling the service with the company’s Go5G Next, Go5G Plus, or Magenta Max phone plans.

The basic home internet plan from T-Mobile includes up to 245Mbps download and 31Mbps upload speeds. For $20 more per month, you can purchase T-Mobile Home Internet Plus. You’ll see the same speeds at this level, but also receive a Wi-Fi Mesh Access Point and the 5G Wi-Fi Gateway included in both plans.

T-Mobile is also now offering a $200 Virtual Prepaid Mastercard for new home internet signups for a limited time.

Like most phone companies, T-Mobile often changes the price of its services. For example, in January, it raised the cost of its home internet plan to $60 from $50. In May, it also raised prices, this time on some legacy phone plans, by up to $5 per month for each line.

Rising prices are not unique to T-Mobile. For example, earlier this year, AT&T raised the cost of its unlimited phone data plans by $1 and introduced a higher-priced option offering faster data speeds to customers. In March, Verizon, the nation’s largest carrier, increased the monthly price of its 5GB Get More phone lines by $4.

You can sign up for T-Mobile home internet from the company’s website or app.

Among the many promises of 5G technology to deliver faster speeds and global connectivity is the ability to bring that world without wires to where you live — beyond your mobile phones and tablets and into your home.

Today, most of us rely on home broadband networks that operate over wires — cable, fiber optic lines, or even plain old telephone service (POTS) lines. However, as 5G coverage and capacity expand, wireless technology has begun to give even the fastest wired broadband connections a run for their money.
