Where can you get T-Mobile’s 5G home internet service? Let’s go to the map
T-Mobile has released a list of cities and towns that will get its new 5G home internet service, so of course I made a map.
The Google map below is from T-Mobile PDF list of cities and towns who are expected to receive the service first, an area that will initially cover 30 million homes. The list is based on metropolitan areas, so some large consolidated areas (such as “Philadelphia-Camden-Wilmington”, a tri-state metropolitan area) are shown as a dot so as not to clutter the map .
Everything is approximate, anyway. As with other such services, T-Mobile doesn’t give an exact coverage map, but at least it gave me a good reason not to. T-Mobile only sells the service based on available network capacity. In other words, if your neighborhood has the wireless network capacity to support 50 households and 100 try to register, half of those people will get an “unavailable” message. Signups will also be limited because the company only has a certain number of Nokia modems that it uses for home gateways.
Nevertheless, this map gives some initial indications. Major metropolitan areas and small towns are represented on the map; it’s an open question how far city coverage will go, but remember that a location needs T-Mobile 5G coverage to be viable.

T-Mobile sells the service for $60 a month, including taxes, fees and modem, with no contract. The company says users should expect download speeds of around 100 Mbps and projects that 7-8 million people will have signed up by 2025. To learn more, go to Tmobile.com/isp.
