What could be more impressive than boasting (theoretical) coverage of over 40 million homes across the country for a network properly inaugurated less than 18 months ago? What about true nationwide availability?
Unlike the full-fledged Home Internet service, the newly launched Lite tier comes with a data cap that speed addicts will certainly not be happy about. We can even see ‘regular’ consumers becoming frustrated with their monthly 100GB limit, especially given the horribly modest 128Kbps speeds that you somehow have to achieve if you go over that limit.
Your Home Internet Lite plan is also no cheaper than the “standard” T-Mobile Home Internet service, at a flat rate of $50 per month including all taxes and fees, as well as one of several gateway devices at no extra cost.
At this point, you might be wondering why you would ever opt for T-Mobile’s Home Internet Lite service, and the answer is, well, you wouldn’t. The whole idea here is to offer something for people who cannot get unlimited Home Internet due to (temporary) network capacity limitations until this unlimited service can reach more places and homes.
Of course, if you do sign up for Home Internet Lite, you’ll get a free upgrade to unlimited Home Internet once that happens, and until then you can always opt for a high-speed cap of 150, 200, or 300 GB for $75 respectively. , $100 and $150 a month if 100 gigs aren’t enough to meet your browsing and streaming needs at home.
