A year ago we covered the news that T-Mobile would be expanding their sales of prepaid offerings to traditional T-Mobile stores and would start to offer “non-voice products” in rural markets. It appears that’s now happening, as an internal document shows Metro by T-Mobile is now offering Home Internet to existing customers.
The document, shared below, simply states that Metro by T-Mobile is now offering Home Internet to their customers as an “add-a-line” service. This means only existing Metro customers that have voice lines already (or presumably new customers who activate voice lines) will be eligible to add Home Internet.
Home Internet became available in select Metro locations on February 15th. The document states that all Metro sales locations will offer it by February 24th.
T-Mobile’s 5G Home Internet service has been quite popular since its launch in early 2021. Customers are provided one of two 5G gateways, a Nokia-made model or a model made by Arcadyan, that are easily plug-and-play. T-Mobile promises an average of anywhere between 35 Mbps and 115 Mbps down on the service, with some customers exceeding that by quite a lot depending on available signals types and strengths.
There’s currently no word as to what the cost will be for Home Internet, but it is likely to cost the same $50 per month as it does on the T-Mobile side. Metro by T-Mobile plans include taxes and fees just like most of T-Mobile’s postpaid plans, so taxes and fees are likely included on the Metro Home Internet line as well.
Metro by T-Mobile customers interested in signing up for Home Internet can do so at some local Metro stores now, with a full roll out to all locations by February 24th. You can check if your home is covered using T-Mobile’s Home Internet eligibility tool.
