Today, T-Mobile announced two new Home Internet plans: Home Internet “Plus” and “Away”. The latter, Away, is designed for customers who are always on-the go, and need Wi-Fi at many different locations around the country.

The new Away plan gives customers access to T-Mobile’s nationwide 5G network anywhere they go via the company’s G4AR gateway. The service works pretty similar to the company’s standard Home Internet, except this new plan will not enforce a single address.

Two data tiers available

There will be two data plans available for the new Home Internet Away. First, the unlimited plan that most people would want. It’ll cost a pricey $160 per month. Then, there’s a cheaper option for just $110 per month that offers 200 gigabytes of data instead of unlimited.

The biggest factor here is cost. Even compared to the competition, which admittedly has a few more limitations than T-Mobile’s option, $160 a month is pretty steep, and over 3 times what most people are paying for standard Home Internet from the company. That being said, this is meant for “frequent travelers like RVers, campers, or digital nomads” as T-Mobile says, so you’re paying for the privilege of access nationwide, not just at a single address.

Changes for existing customers

The news also means T-Mobile will now finally be implementing address checks via GPS for existing customers. The home internet gateways that have been provided since the 5G Home Internet launch have all come with GPS, though T-Mobile never enforced the address requirement. That will now change.


The new Away plan will be available on May 8th. Customers will be able to sign up online on T-Mobile’s website or via support/in-store.
