T-Mobile announced that its home Internet service is exiting the pilot phase and would be available in virtually all of its markets for a flat rate of $60 per month provided automatic payments are enabled.

The $60 fee includes all taxes and there is no separate equipment fee or contract required.  The 4G/5G modem that is provided with the service doubles as a Wi-Fi router and access point.  Users get unlimited data at speeds of up to 100 Mbps with no throttling.

With no hint of modesty, T-Mobile CEO Mike Sievert said that “We’re quite literally the only company that can kickstart this new era of connectivity, that has the network to upgrade America’s phones, homes and small towns to 5G. And we’re just getting started.”

The self-proclaimed “Un-carrier” also announced its “Great Free 5G Phone Upgrade” that offers users a free 5G-capable phone.  The program includes a free upgrade for iPhone 11 owners to an iPhone 12, as well as a free less expensive 5G phone with any trade-in.

T-Mobile said that the new home Internet service would be available in many rural areas and announced it would hire 7,500 new employees in small towns and rural communities over the coming few years in addition to providing $25 million in grants for what it termed “community development projects.”
