The Un‑carrier is expanding 5G Home Internet to 81 more cities and towns in five states, providing millions with a new option for fast, reliable internet.
T-Mobile Media Release | June 30, 2022
BELLEVUE, Wash. — June 30, 2022 — T-Mobile is at it again, hooking up 81 more cities and towns across Colorado, Iowa, Kansas, Missouri and Oklahoma with increased access to 5G Home Internet! Today, T-Mobile (NASDAQ: TMUS) announced it has expanded the footprint of 5G Home Internet across these five states, where more than 1.1 million households still have no access to home broadband. With this latest expansion, T-Mobile Home Internet is available to nearly 5 million more homes. Today’s news follows recent Home Internet expansions in the Southeast, Texas, Midwest and South, bringing a new option for affordable, reliable home broadband to tens of millions of Americans.
Access to fast, reliable home broadband is no longer a luxury. But for too many communities, access to reliable home broadband is still incredibly limited. According to a recent study from the Greater Des Moines Partnership, 40% of Central Iowa homes report download speeds of less than 25 Megabits per second (Mbps), which does not meet the FCC’s definition of high-speed broadband, even though demand for bandwidth has grown at a rate of nearly 25% annually for the last two decades. In Oklahoma, it’s estimated that one in every four students doesn’t have high-speed internet access at home, as roughly 90% of Oklahoma’s school districts are located partly or entirely in rural areas. And in the urban core of Kansas City, MO, officials have gotten creative, launching a program for high school students to install internet in buildings across the city, just to bring basic, affordable connectivity to the city’s residents. It’s 2022. This is unacceptable.
With T-Mobile, more than 40 million households – a third of which are in rural America – are eligible for 5G Home Internet. They’ll get broadband speeds that handle multiple devices at the same time for working, streaming, zooming, online learning, gaming and more! And it’s just $50 per month with AutoPay. Or $30 per month for families with Magenta MAX, T-Mobile’s most popular phone plan – that’s what we call a win-win.
What People Are Saying
“Bravo! Extremely pleased that T-Mobile is committed to increasing home internet service to remove barriers throughout the Denver-Aurora metro area and beyond,” said Colorado Senator Rhonda Fields – District 29 Assistant Majority Leader. “Affordability and cost should never be a barrier to internet access. Diverse communities can achieve the vision of universal, abundant and affordable broadband with this T Mobile service.”
“Residents across Iowa now have a new option when it comes to reliable home broadband thanks to T-Mobile Home Internet,” said State Rep. Brian Lohse, chair of the Iowa House Information Technology committee. “Access to home broadband is not a luxury, it is a necessity and I look forward to this continued partnership with T-Mobile as we continue to expand broadband access across our state.”
“I am elated that T-Mobile is expanding its Home Internet service in Colorado and providing a competitive option for home broadband,” said Colorado State Representative Dafna Michaelson Jenet. “Broadband is an essential service and it’s critical that Coloradans have reliable and affordable options for staying connected. I applaud T-Mobile’s investment in this space and look forward to future broadband expansion to other parts of our great state.”
“T-Mobile’s 5G Home Internet investment in Oklahoma is a great step forward for many in Oklahoma who need faster speeds and improved internet access,” said Rep. Jeff Boatman. “I can’t thank them enough for their commitment and willingness to work alongside many others to improve internet access in the state.”
“Broadband expansion is vital to Missouri’s future,” said Missouri State Senator Sandy Crawford. “T-Mobile’s expansion of its 5G internet service will help families in Sedalia get the speeds they need for both work and personal use. I appreciate their investment in Pettis County.”
“T-Mobile’s expansion of its 5G Home Internet service will help more Kansas families get the speeds they want for work, school and fun,” said Kansas Lt. Governor David Toland. “We are grateful for their investment in Kansas and hope to see it continue.”
“At T-Mobile, we’re all about disrupting broken industries. And the broadband industry is big-time broken. Millions across this country are being left behind, unable to participate in the digital economy and in virtual learning, all because they don’t have access to high-speed internet. That’s just ridiculous,” said Mike Katz, Chief Marketing Officer at T-Mobile. “So today, we’re giving nearly 5 million more homes across Colorado, Iowa, Kansas, Missouri and Oklahoma a new, affordable option for fast, reliable 5G internet. With 5G Home Internet, along with efforts like Project 10Million, T-Mobile is doing real work to bridge the Digital Divide.”
