As a result of the pandemic, remote working and learning has increased dramatically, driving data consumption and broadband usage to an all-time high. In 2020, the pandemic led to a 51% spike in broadband traffic, and in 2021 traffic jumped again, up 11% from 2020. And virtual experiences are set to continue for years to come . By 2025, an estimated 36.2 million workers, or 22% of Americans, will be working remotely, an 87% increase from pre-pandemic levels. This change has made access to reliable home broadband even more crucial than it was before the pandemic.
But access is not the only problem. For those with home broadband, they’ve probably been stuck with fixed ISPs, which are notorious for things like terrible customer service, skyrocketing bills after the first year, and monthly fees for everything and everything. anything. In 2020 alone, ISPs charged customers over $9 billion in additional fees alone. It’s crazy. And T-Mobile is tackling it head-on.
T-Mobile Home Internet is different. It’s a new alternative to traditional home broadband, and it’s available to more than 30 million homes nationwide. It builds on T-Mobile’s core 5G network and leaves behind old-school ISP tactics like annual contracts, monthly fees, and bombastic promotions. And now it’s available to millions more in the South.
