How 5G wireless technology connects you to the world from the comfort of your home.

How our 5G internet is different.

While cable internet relies on wired connections, T-Mobile Home Internet uses the power of over-the-air 5G to provide reliable connectivity where wires can’t reach. Plus, we won’t tangle you up in long-term contracts.

How our 5G home internet works.

T-Mobile’s 5G network is built on a series of cell sites that use radio waves to send and receive data. Your gateway converts the nearest 5G signal into Wi-Fi, allowing you to access the internet wirelessly.

Optimizing your 5G home internet connection.

Does the placement of your 5G gateway matter?

Yes, and here’s why.

Just like plants need sunlight to thrive, your gateway needs 5G radio waves to deliver the best wireless performance. Putting your gateway in a window helps it connect to the nearest 5G cell tower or data hub, allowing for faster download and upload speeds, lower latency, and greater capacity than placements without a strong connection.
