The operator also announced that it is upgrading all of its customers (including those who were previously on Sprint) who have a limited data plan to an unlimited 5G plan for free.
Additionally, T-Mobile Home Internet over 5G launches today with 30 million eligible households, making the operator “one of the nation’s largest broadband providers by service area” from day one. . The statement sarcastically adds that “there are already more homes than Verizon expects to cover by the end of 2023.” Oh, and 10 million of those eligible households are in rural America.
