T-Mobile expands 5G Home Internet across Indiana, Kentucky, Ohio
Broadband World News, , 2/16/2022
BELLEVUE, Wash. – On the heels of debuting 5G Home Internet in the Big Game, T-Mobile (NASDAQ: TMUS) today announced they've expanded access to the service in 62 cities and towns across Indiana, Kentucky and Ohio, building on recent expansions across the Southeast and Texas. Across the three states, more than 3 million people still have no access or only one choice when it comes to traditional home broadband. With this upgrade, T-Mobile Home Internet is now an option for nearly 5 million homes in the area. For towns like Greensburg, IN or Morgantown, KY – places where more than 25% of residents have no access to high-speed internet, T-Mobile is introducing a new option, helping to free customers from their landline ISPs.
In 2022, a reliable home broadband connection is crucial for just about everyone – for work, for school and for staying connected to loved ones. But during the height of the pandemic, research showed that technology barriers still prevent many workers from doing their job virtually, impacting low-income households at a much higher rate. Today, more than 40% of adults in low-income households do not have broadband service at home. Even worse, during the height of the pandemic, as families across the country transitioned their children to virtual learning, studies showed that hundreds of thousands of students in every state were unable to fully participate in a virtual classroom environment. In Indiana, Kentucky and Ohio alone, more than a million students were without an adequate high-speed internet connection. That's ridiculous. But those are just two examples of how traditional ISPs are failing Americans.
As part of T-Mobile's merger with Sprint, the Un-carrier committed to making fixed wireless internet a real option for millions of Americans, and with more than 30 million households already eligible for T-Mobile Home Internet nationwide, T-Mobile is making good on that commitment at a time when reliance on connectivity is at its highest.
About T-Mobile Home Internet
T-Mobile Home Internet is no-BS home internet for just $50/month, period. Landline ISPs have been having their way for years - charging bogus fees on top of the monthly rate, increasing prices after a year, requiring long-term contracts, providing terrible customer service… the list goes on. And they've gotten away with it. But T-Mobile Home Internet is different.
Access has recently expanded in 62 cities and towns across Indiana, Kentucky and Ohio, listed below. Availability is based on network capacity, which is increasing all the time. Check if T-Mobile Home Internet is available for your home at https://www.t-mobile.com/isp.

Launch of 2-Gig and 5-Gig FTTP tiers in 70-plus markets puts more pressure on cable ops to enhance their existing DOCSIS 3.1 network or accelerate their upgrade activity centered on the new DOCSIS 4.0 specs.
