T-Mobile has started piloting home Internet service, sending invites to a limited group of T-Mobile customers in rural and underserved markets for high-speed fixed wireless service.

The T-Mobile Home Internet pilot is offered exclusively in areas where the Operator expect to deliver speeds of around 50 Mbps through fixed unlimited wireless service over LTE – with no data caps.

Pricing it at $50 per month with AutoPay, the service comes with no annual service contracts, no hidden fees and no equipment costs, says T-Mobile. Due to LTE network and spectrum capacity constraints, the T-Mobile Home Internet pilot is limited by invitation-only to existing customers in specific areas. The Operator target to reach 50,000 households by the end of the year.

According to TMobile, home internet customers may notice speeds lower than other customers due to data prioritization, during congestion.

Two weeks ago, I laid out our plans for home broadband with the New T-Mobile. Now, we’re already hard at work building toward that future. We’re walking the walk and laying the foundation for a world where we can take the fight to Big Cable on behalf of consumers and offer real choice, competition and savings to Americans nationwide.
