3 Months Later Review T-Mobile Home 5G Internet Review
what is going on guys welcome to,greggills tv this video is all about,t-mobiles home internet now you can get,it for 50 bucks and within by the time,this video probably posts you can,probably get it for 30 bucks if youre a,t-mobile magenta max customer so you can,get it for really cheap 50 bucks or 30,bucks,either way is super super cheap and what,it does if you havent seen my video on,this is its a little router access,point that you have router modem all in,one that connects wirelessly to their 5g,and it gives you internet all throughout,your house or hopefully all throughout,your house unless your house is,completely massive and for 50 bucks you,get the modem you get the router,obviously the all-in-one you get the the,service you also get a bunch of freebies,such as their t-mobile tuesday stuff you,get mlb tv for free you get paramount,plus tv for free for one year you get,half off youtube tv i believe now uh,thats one of the new extras i believe,you also get netflix for free that could,be another one free so double check on,those last two,because they just had an announcement,about it,but anyways you get a ton of freebies as,well so for 50 bucks you get all of that,and you also get since its running off,their 5g you get crazy speeds i,literally get speeds up to almost 700,megs download and then about 100 megs,upload ive seen people get faster than,those two or maybe not faster on the,download side but definitely a little,bit faster on the upload side maybe 150,maybe 750 800 on the download but,ultimately you get really really fast,speeds potentially if service is good,where you are and that could be,potentially one of the drawbacks about,this is that either it isnt available,where you live for whatever reason uh or,it is available but the speeds are just,uh whatever 150 megs which honestly is,probably fast enough for most people a,small family um,again completely fine with basically,anything youd want to do but when you,get into that upper tier of what kind of,what i get its really really good now,how has the reliability been over those,90 days and i have to say,since i did the video and since i kind,of got things figured out and ironed out,theyve been amazing very very good so,the initial problem i was having is that,i was using the t-mobile router internet,thing um and from me a house is a little,bit bigger and then we got a backyard so,some of the cameras um,would they wouldnt disconnect but,sometimes they take a little bit longer,to connect so for me it was,the the the coverage for that modem uh,router was just a little bit too small,for my liking so i started using my,old router and when i had my router set,up is just a router and the t-mobile,thing set up as a router and a modem,they were kind of getting each other,confused and my old router was just not,performing well and was kicking things,offline it was just an awful thing so i,changed my old router into an access,point and still at that point my,coverage for some of my stuff just,wasnt that good i had moved where my,rudder was to my office because my,office potentially gets or does get the,best t-mobile speeds in the house no,matter where i put it you want to put it,on the second floor generally and you,want to put it by a window and for me,that just works out the best,for where i am so thats why i had to,move the router from my bedroom to my,office now with that said again i still,wasnt that happy so what i did is i,ended up getting a new mesh,router setup and things did improve but,they still werent that great so i went,up to that next tier of devices and its,very expensive but i got a very very,nice asus,router mesh router and it just works,great everythings super fast,everythings great coverage is amazing,now,me complaining about the router side of,things you might be completely happy and,fine with what t-mobile gives you and,just live off of that or you might have,another router that you can use,that works perfectly fine with,everything connected to the t-mobile so,really its just a little bit of cat and,mouse games on there to figure out,whats going to work best for you so,after i made those changes reliability,again has been absolutely amazing my,internet has not gone down im not,getting any stuttering videos uh when,im streaming because we stream a lot,here we go over i think we go two or,three terabytes of data every single,month and thats obviously me uploading,my videos and me uh,my whole family streaming videos and,playing video games and downloading,video games and all that stuff so we do,a ton of that stuff so no lag on that,downloads have been amazing uploads are,even better than what i had with cable,internet way better like,three times better which i was getting,about 35 megs on cable and now im,getting about 100 or so sometimes a,little more sometimes a little less than,that but ultimately way faster my,uploads to youtube go so so good,um and then gaming gaming was an issue,at times with the old setup when i got,my own router set up in there,everythings been great um ive been,able to do group chats when im on there,i can download my games on xbox and,playstation 5. um again i havent had,any issues everything has worked ge,online gaming has worked really really,well so everything about this service i,i honestly cant complain currently with,what ive got the price is super good,like for 50 bucks and im getting better,download and better upload speeds than,paying 150 bucks on cable is crazy also,you get they dont you get unlimited,data so if youre worried about them,slowing you down they dont slow you,down i do terabytes of data you can go,on the t-mobile,reddit tm its called tn i think its,called t-mobile high-speed internet or,something,on reddit and see what people write,nobodys getting slowed down nobodys,getting throttled none of that so if,your questions are even youre going to,get throttled youre going to throw them,we havent we wont theyre even saying,t-mobiles even saying that theyre,going to lock these prices in basically,forever so which is crazy for 50 bucks,so if youre on the fence about getting,this id say give it a try now i cant,guarantee its going to work for you as,good as it does for me based off where,you live and how close you are to the,towers and everything like that but at,50 bucks and like i think you get like a,free 15-day trial its definitely worth,the try im completely happy with it and,i completely recommend it to basically,anyone that wants low-cost,internet with amazing amazing high,speeds and no throttling and you dont,have to pay for unlimited data because,you already get its included in that,price and you get all those freebies,that i talked about as well so check all,that stuff out thanks for watching if,you want to sign up it is linked down,below and well see you guys down the,road also before i forget i will link,the two routers that worked pretty good,for me as well if you want to pick those,up if you have a slightly bigger house,or you need something a little bit more,beefier,peace
T-Mobile 5G Home Internet : Finally Worth it?!
whats going on youtube as they say if,you dont succeed at first try try again,and this is the third time im trying,t-mobiles home internet connection this,is a brand new 5g gateway and i got to,tell you this is way way way much more,improved than the other two gateways,although they kind of got rid of a lot,of the more advanced features if you,will and this is more of a basic,plug-and-play type of solution pay no,attention to your connection is weak im,here in the office and i dont even get,cell phone signal so i did have this,place near a window and i was getting,some really awesome speeds but is this,enough to get rid of your coax cable is,this enough for you to have your whole,home coverage based on t-mobiles,internet well i had up to 33 devices,connected so i can give you my thoughts,on that lets get into it and check out,t-mobiles latest 5g gateway together,[Music],before we get into some of the settings,and whatnot just take a look at the,overall gateway the 5g gateway from,t-mobile its a nice device its pretty,small its supposed to be put right in,front of your window to get the best,coverage obviously and they do have an,app which ill show you that helps you,set it up but it really is plug and play,once this arrives in the mail all you,have to do is plug in that power cord,and youre good to go now on the front,you have this nice handy screen here,thats going to show you your signal,strength and of course right now its,weak im in the office i dont really,get much connection here itll show you,how many devices are connected out of,64. and this is a wi-fi 6 router so your,wi-fi 6 devices are going to have a nice,strong signal and in terms of 2.4,gigahertz and 5 gigahertz there isnt a,way to separate those bands so some iot,devices might have might have a little,bit of an issue connecting with it all,of my devices connected without any,issue thats just one thing i want you,guys to know for more advanced features,guys what id recommend you do is go,ahead and get a separate router maybe,you already have a router and all you,need to do is pretty simple just get an,ethernet cable now you have two ports on,the back you can plug it into either one,of these ports plug your ethernet cable,into that lan port of the 5g gateway,there and then get your router this,happens to be an asus router and plug it,into the wan connection of your existing,router and this way youre going to be,able to use all the functions of your,existing router except for port,forwarding and you can also use this as,an extender so you can connect devices,here and you can connect devices here,this is this is not going to create,really a mesh network because you are,going to have two different ids two,different ssids but this is a way that,you can use all the features of your,router if you guys need to plus you can,extend it so thats always a little bit,of a plus now in terms of range i,actually did have to connect my existing,router just because where i am theres a,lot of interference,and this just wasnt cutting it and and,thats nothing against t-mobiles,gateway i do have a gaming router and,even with that i still need to create my,own mesh network just because thats not,powerful enough to get through all the,nonsense here in new york city but if,you live out in the country i think this,is going to be able to serve a two-story,house as long as you dont live in that,mansion if you do live in that mansion,thats awesome get yourself a mesh,network and connect it to it you can,also see messages if you get any,messages like service messages now i,havent sent myself a text message i,dont think youd want to do that but,im pretty sure youd be able to if you,wanted to use this as a text line and,you can change the language but thats,basically it when it comes to the,gateway so let me show you the app and,then were going to talk about more of,my experience using t-mobiles 5g,gateway as my main internet device the,application that you need to download is,called t-mobiles home internet and this,is available for ios or for the android,so head over to your play store or to,your apple apple store and go ahead and,search for it i just forgot the name of,apples app store forgive me if you will,and as you can see i just connected to,the 5g gateway using my cell phone right,here its going to give you that same,same readout so youre going to see that,my my connection right now is really not,that good its the same readout thats,on the gateway so you can go ahead and,connect to wi-fi and check your status,right from your phone you dont have to,go to the actual gateway and and kind of,look at it yourself youll be able to,see how many devices are connected so,you can see my jabbers s22 ultra is,connected and you can also manage a,schedule as well so if you wanted to,create kind of like i id call this,parental controls you can disable when,this device can actually use the,internet all you can do is disable a,time when when your kids can use the,internet or even if you wanted a device,not to be able to phone home at certain,times you can go ahead and use this,again its pretty simple but you do have,all the days of the week that you can go,ahead and limit the internet access to,whatever device you want to limit youll,also be able to set up your ssid so,heres my ssid you can change the,password and again,you cannot go ahead and switch the bands,you can only do a five gigahertz band or,two gigahertz or leave it at automatic,and with automatic again its going to,choose whichever device is on 2.4 in,whichever device is on 5 gigahertz now,your results might vary i did have one,phone that did not want to connect for,some reason but all of my other devices,connected without any problems at all so,i think they did a nice job again if you,want more advanced features all you guys,have to do is plug in another router you,probably already have one so just go,ahead and plug that in and play around,with some of the settings yourself and,you can also hide the ssid if you want,to,so this is a way that you can change,some of the features on your 5g gateway,itself and support you can go ahead and,call customer care or whatnot,now thats basically it guys i mean you,can see the advanced cellular metrics if,you wanted to go in and kind of see what,tower youre connected to and what band,youre connected to you can go ahead and,do that,you can also go ahead and reset your,gateway and speaking about resetting the,gateway i only had to do this once in my,one month of testing thats when i had,about 25 devices connected and it kind,of wigged out a little bit i did have to,reset it but other than that its been,working flawlessly i never had to reset,it and thats definitely a huge,improvement from the older 5g gateways,that i tested from t-mobile with those,ones i definitely have to restart it,every so often so im very happy to see,that they fix whatever issue they they,needed to fix there but thats basically,it when it comes to the t-mobile,application another thing i do want to,mention about t-mobiles home internet,this is unlimited no limits are based on,the amount of data you can use i did,notice that during rush hour and during,peak peak internet times if you will i,did get a slower speed on the t-mobile,5g gateway versus on my own phone so i,know is not really prioritizing home,internet at the moment they want to give,people on their cell network the fastest,speeds possible now that being said guys,unless youre running a speed test every,five or six minutes youre not going to,notice that slow down it just happens,from time to time so i did see it,dropped from about 300 megabits all the,way down to probably about 60 or so but,if i had to put an average on my speeds,id put my speed at about 150 which i,dont think is that bad at all and the,uploads always been about 40 or 50 as,well ill show you some speed tests in a,little bit but thats just one thing i,wanted to note about deprioritization,you are going to get less speeds on this,devi

T-Mobile Home Internet Review with final Thoughts of the product #tmobile #tmobilehomeinternet
hey guys thank you for tuning in,we got this video coming guys as you,guys see right here those T-Mobile home,internet products right there you got we,got all three of them the 5G units so,why dont you go grab your soda your,drink,and your popcorn,and lets get this video started because,this is going to be a little bit of a,longer one were going to test these,units,catch catch the whole video to the end,guys,all right lets get this intro rolling,right about,now,[Music],hey guys thank you for tuning in here to,another video on the channel as you guys,can see right here we got the three,official 5G gateways from T-Mobile home,internet as you tell you could tell,right here we have the Nokia which,everybody calls the trash can so we have,that we got The Arcadian,which is the one that got released last,year and then we have the most recent,which is the set the sagcom fast 5688w,so were gonna go over these units,were gonna test them or you know well,do the t-speed test well do well check,signal strength well see how the UI,works on all these so what I want to do,is just go over which one would be a,better option you know which one seems,to get better signal strength and,has a better interface so lets get this,going so everything is going to be,hardwired so right now we have it,hardwired to my desktop,the Segway,so here we go were gonna pull up the,specs real quick so you guys can see so,the Segway what is it sag com Im sorry,fast,5688w,and these are the bands that it connects,to so for 5G this is your N24 and 41 and,66 and 77 and then 71. oops those were,backwards my bad LTE band two four five,twelve twenty six forty one forty six,and 71.,and this these are Wi-Fi six with four,by four Mimo,all right,and,64 devices is maximum you can connect,all right lets uh lets do a baseline,speed test on this unit,as you can tell we are hardwired 20 ping,so this is going to be based off of a,hardwired connection,yeah guys this is going to be pretty,interesting well see what happens with,this,oh yeah,all right were looking at a 249,on the down,which is not bad,itll get you itll get you going,and we are looking on the upload it,looks like its gonna be like a,13.6 yeah 13.6,all right so then what were going to do,next is were going to do the fast so,you know what your video playback speeds,are going to be,of course it should be uncapped so it,should be pretty damn close to what the,speed test is,all right so were looking at a 230 on,Fast which is good so what were going,to do guys is Im gonna play one of the,videos here on my channel so we dont,have any issues with uh copy strikes or,anything so were gonna do is were,gonna put it at,4K 4K 60 frames lets just start the,video over from the beginning lets see,what happens all right hey guys,lets see,are we getting uh right here,okay as you guys can see right,right here so it is playing ahead oops,sorry about that lets turn that down a,little bit so the video is playing ahead,which is not bad it is keeping up,lets put it back to normal Zoom,okay so were keeping up lets just do a,couple of fast forwards here,okay,lets see how quick okay so it keeps as,you can see guys it keeps up pretty,quick with the playback,Okay so,some delay but,its not bad its okay,okay so there you go,so now lets do um lets go through the,interface guys so lets see here so its,192.168.,12.1,oh so we cannot access,the router the menu of the website even,though on the back of the Gateway here,Ill see here we can cover some of this,stuff up,it says here,the admin IP,is literally,[Music],192.168.12.1 which is what we have up,here huh,so on the SAG on the what is it sag Sac,comp we cannot access that,we cannot access that also its going to,be app based so let me grab my other,phone sign it in the Wi-Fi so then we,could see what its doing and well be,right back,all right guys we are back sorry about,that as I this is going to probably be a,little bit of a longer video guys so,just letting you guys know so were,going to do a Wi-Fi test real quick here,with the,the SAG what is it called uh Sage M calm,so there you go 26 paint 600 this is on,device testing with the Wi-Fi connection,k290 down,its not bad guys I mean its okay,but yeah Ill Ill give you guys my,final thoughts on fix wireless at the,end of this video and 16.1 on the app,okay and then this is basically guys so,you have no connection so you cannot do,no,no uh freaking the 192.,168.12.1 so you have to use the app on,the new Gateway,you have to end up using the app if you,want any um,any how do you call it statistics to,this so lets see here so if you go to,more,or is it more and then Advanced cellular,matrix there you go so were connected,to a band two,negative 97 rsrp positive six sine r,and then were on n41 negative 108 rsrp,with a negative 18 sine R so yeah guys,this is what our connection is with this,Gateway,now,lets move on to the next Gateway so,what Im going to do is Im going to,unplug,or actually hold on Im so sorry,we forgot to do one more thing here,so what were going to do is were going,to time real quick were just gonna,download a quick 100 Meg file were just,going to do a quick,something easy,so lets reset it so lets do click,and then once I hit save lets see here,let me put you all right here,okay,okay there we go,see here were already a seven seconds,eight seconds so you guys see the timer,so were at 25 Megs downloaded already,and this is on the hard wire right here,so were just doing 100 Meg file just to,make so the video dont drag out,so,this will give you like uh kind of,Statistics a little bit of how the,connection is on a hard wire but,Wireless should be the same on Wi-Fi but,yeah guys the,as you can see you know our speed test,Baseline was 200 what was it 280 down,or lets see here or Baseline yeah it,was like 280 if Im not mistaken lets,see your results,290 so 290 was our results,we already have 53 seconds for 100 Meg,file,so 80 Megs right now downloaded were,already at one minute two seconds,were gonna do a full time on this,okay there you go so one minute 10,seconds 100 Meg file downloaded okay,guys now Im gonna hook up the next,Gateway,and yeah well go from there,okay guys now we are connected to the,Arcadian,all right so heres our Acadian good,signal,lets see lets go through our bands so,were connected to band two as a primary,negative 102 rsrp with a positive two,sine r,and our n41 negative 107 with a negative,12 sine r,but we are connected n41 okay,so now lets do um,lets do a baseline speed test on the,Wi-Fi real quick,okay 22 pink seven Jitter,and this is off Wi-Fi right now,on The Arcadian,as you guys will see right here,it is on the T-Mobile,d341 which thats what I have it labeled,as so 129 down,and our uploads going to be about 22.3,okay now lets do a baseline speed test,here on the desktop,15,and this is on Hardline as you guys can,see right here,it is hard light on The Arcadian so,were looking at 119 down,which is about comparable to our phone,device speed test so its not off too,much,we just it seems like The Arcadian has a,little bit of better upload so,24.03 okay now lets do our fast,so we get our Baseline on our video test,right here,so like I said it should be pretty close,to the the test of of the speed test or,video what the heck,um that was interesting,okay,okay 210 lets retest the speed real,quick because thats interesting that,was a big spike right there,oh wow 61 ping,huh,interesting this is interesting guys,yeah 89 down and,huh,n is 24 up huh this is interesting guys,hold on guys I gotta answer this phone,call Ill be right back,okay sorry about that guys so lets go,over the Arcadian KVD 21 Gateway,go over the band specs so lets see here,so 5G bands its n41 and 66 and 71. LTE,is,b245 12 41 46 66 and 71 with the Wi-Fi 6,on a 4×4 Mimo,and two the rj45s,okay so lets see here guys lets see if,we can access the 192. okay so we can,access 192.168.12.1,it lets us do that but it is,recommending us to download the mobile,app it says here,from setup to monitoring and p

????Full Review – Tmobile 5G Home Internet, after 50 days – pros, cons, problems and solutions #TMHI
hey guys this is peter and now ive had,the t-mobile 5g home internet for a full,billing cycle,actually for a month and a half so now,im able to answer a lot of the,questions and speculations that a lot of,you have had,im going to give you all the pros the,cons the issues and some of the,workarounds that i found,so uh well first off lets get into the,good news the good news is,i have had this for over a full billing,cycle and we hit,over a terabyte and a lot of people said,theyre never going to let you hit up,that above that,and uh not slow you down well they,didnt slow me down,and other people speculated that thered,be hidden fees there wasnt its just,50 a month so fantastic um,that is exactly what t-mobile promised,and what theyre delivering,now for some of the issues that i went,through oh first off,it works so well that i was able to,cancel comcast i did call them up and i,learned a lot,canceling because they pull out their,best operators and i got some tips for,you so stay tuned on that but i,am pleased to tell you that uh gaming,was not an issue,now i did go ahead and i made a video,that showed you how i put external,antennas on this thats right i took it,apart,its almost like they want you to they,were right there and easily accessible,i put some pigtails on it i put up my 4g,external antenna my best best one from,proxycast,and guess what i got better signal with,better speeds and a better ping,and just a great all-around uh service,now i do think also that a lot of people,are testing this wrong,do you know even if you plug into the,device itself if youre not using the,right cable,maybe youre using a cat5 cable you need,at least cat5e to hit over a hundred,otherwise im getting speeds of like 80,or 90. those arent what you want,make sure you get a cat 5e or a cat 6,cable,and test it and then youll get the real,scores also,this thing supports wi-fi so you can,also connect over wi-fi,to get the best speeds you want the new,wi-fi 6 which this is,a capable of its 802.11 ac,but you also need a device that is wi-fi,6 compatible to see over 100 megabits so,a lot of people said i saw,4g speeds well that could be true but,maybe you werent testing it correctly,so let me get into some of the issues,that i found and i think the biggest,issue is that this gateway,its beautiful gateway uh is both a well,its a gateway which is,a a junction point between two,dissimilar networks,so in this case its cellular and its,wi-fi,well the best wi-fi location in your,home may not be the best signal,uh for 4g so that was my case,i had to put it in a weird spot and able,to get uh in order to get some good,signal from uh from the 5g and get good,speeds,but it wasnt the optimal place for my,uh,for my network so here we go i found a,workaround on that and im going to tell,you what it is and,well one of them is i just dont use it,as,an access point i use it as a modem only,and the part of the reason is well just,that here let me get into it,or this gateway as an access point,doesnt support all the old legacy stuff,it is a 5 gigahertz so theres its,confusing because theres 5g which is,cellular,but theres also 5 gigahertz wi-fi its,a 5 gigahertz,wi-fi solution which means it doesnt,support any of the 2.4 gigahertz,so some of the older stuff that the kids,have including some of the pcs that i,have,they only support 2.4 gigahertz wi-fi,and uh,well it doesnt work with that so thats,kind of a major issue for legacy stuff,now you may want to say you could argue,that for a really strong robust,it department would say uh we we,i want to allow those for security,reasons but this is home,this is kids and our kids have devices,and tablets and game boys and all that,stuff,you want to be able to have that it,should be an option to turn that on,heating issues a lot of people reporting,heating issues with this and yeah,the more devices you put on wi-fi on,this it really,especially the high-speed ones it starts,to generate some heat which actually,does degrade the performance,i sidestepped all of that yet again by,using this as a modem only,it supports up to 64 devices so they say,but you know what,i have a new modem im testing out this,one has more ports in the back,similar design in the fact that its a,chimney but this has,a qualcomm processor in it that supports,200 devices,so im excited to test this out and see,all the speeds that i get,this is going to replace my new wi-fi,and uh or because be the homes,new wi-fi and im going to put it in the,same place the old one was,so thats going to work for me as well,um lets see,geolocation thats another issue so,when youre running a program like,google tv or,hulu with their local tv or fubo with,their local tv,theyre going to actually look at your,geo location where youre reported as,and you can see this running a vpn itll,show you where youre reporting as,im reporting a sacramento thats like,150 miles away,they have different crimes they have,different football teams they have,different weather,uh its really not good for tv but i,imagine that this,is a growing pain and its you know,something that that will soon be fixed,they know where this device is in fact,they locked it,and they approved the spot and they know,which tower im hitting,they got to go ahead and report that and,then everything will be fixed,but i did want to report that that was,an issue i did,uh also want to mention a lot of people,asked about,do you have the ttl fix and can you get,in there and do port forwarding so i can,run my,uh my plex server yeah those options are,missing on this at least currently,you cant do any of that so um and then,if you of course,you do it what im doing and use it as a,modem and get a different access point,that does have those features,well its going to be one level too low,in order to implement that,so its still not going to work for that,but ive been tickled with it,i went ahead and canceled my comcast,theres no gaming issues,speed is there the anxiety over,downloading too much or watching 4k,television is all gone im just loving,it again,i dont feel guilty for taking a nap,with the tv on because,it doesnt affect me anymore so really,good,ive been really happy with it and those,are the issues that i found,and this is what im going to be,reviewing next i think that is the right,work,around because you want to put this this,access point in the best spot in your,house where you get the best 5g,signal you dont want to put it in the,spot where you get the best wi-fi,coverage,so i think they deserve to be separated,the fact that it only has two ports,rj45 uh that means that uh,well you want to go to something else i,got to get to my switch i have,i probably have lets see i have three,hubs so uh you definitely want to be,able to plug all that stuff,in i actually use my entire house with,this,so im going to unplug my device and uh,plug my old wi-fi and put in this new,one and let you know how it works,coverage and everything so um,thats coming up anyway guys that is the,takeaway on this oh i did do some speed,tests and i want to show you that in,fact,im going to do one right now and show,you that,so here all right so i do want to do a,speed test for you because so you can,see all the pings and all of the other,stuff,this is after a full month look at this,its going to,report my location it should say,sacramento,yeah its saying that what sacramento is,my closest one because it thinks im in,sacramento,thats not so great,look at that ping 21 pink my sons not,having any,complaints about that i usually get,about 200.,come on get me there 200 200,well i saw 190 saw 198,actually oh there it is again theres,200 all right,thats exactly what ive been pulling,all the time and i usually see about 60,here,and yeah its pretty much very,consistent,21 ping is pretty good i usually get a,22 or even a 24,but anything under 30 is great for first,person shooters and my son has had no,complaints,so he said dont tell people i said its,good it just doesnt suck,so i guess thats a
T-Mobile 5G Home Internet Stress Test
whats up everybody Im Josh and this is,help HQ today were going to be doing a,stress test on my T-Mobile 5G home,internet service,so I have about nine people in my family,but at any given time were not all here,obviously but we have a lot of stuff,going so I would say at a minimum we,probably have five people using the,internet all at the same time and so,that could be anything from iPads or,tablets were talking someone streaming,media on a TV playing game consoles PC,gaming you name it,um we do it here so,I just want to give you a little little,tiny glimpse of how well the surface,actually works and if it would be good,for you to even check out now obviously,depending on where you live and like how,far you are from a tower is going to,determine if youre going to get service,thats even comparable to what I get but,at least you can have a baseline to go,off of I already made a review video and,Ill throw a link up in the description,or Ill throw a link up here rather I,can put it down in the description too,why not uh for you guys to view if you,want to get into that were not going to,be covering that here and so we had,Xfinity Service we were paying for the,gigabit service through them and I have,since canceled it because it was so,expensive and so weve kept T-Mobile 5G,home internet service and if youre in a,situation thats similar to us hopefully,this will help you figure out whether or,not it will meet your needs so without,further ado lets get into the stress,test okay so the first thing that were,going to do is Im going to go up and,show you what my setup looks like and,then I got Eli here and hes going to,help me start turning on all of our TVs,and devices and well see how good this,works so you may or may not know with,the T-Mobile 5G service its using a,cell phone tower and so,I have to have my modem up in my,daughters room because its the highest,point in the house in a window thats,closest to the direction of the tower,that we have so my setup looks like this,so I have my modem I have the Wi-Fi,turned off and then Im using an aero,Pro 6E mesh system and you dont get a,lot of options with the aero systems and,uh I might make a video on that later,but so I have a manage switch connected,and then we have our Nas,but um for the purposes today I just,want to show you so we do have,excellent service okay so Elis going to,go ahead and turn this on and well,start streaming something,and this is in the same room that the,actual modem,is in,okay so we got one TV going lets go get,a couple more on,head over to the next room,pick something else,do Disney,okay so we got two devices going now,okay were going to turn our third TV on,now uh using a different streaming,service this time were going to do,Disney Plus,so we got Netflix YouTube and Disney,plus running and then uh well go down,and I believe my son is already using,his iPad and I think hes watching,YouTube as well and then well turn on,an Xbox and see if we can play a game,online,okay so we got three TVs going,we have one with Netflix one with,YouTube and one with Disney Plus,uh thats about what we normally have,going on and I can show you guys lets,just walk around here real quick,so,still playing,still going,and as you can see my son the whole time,we were doing this hes got his iPad,going and looks like hes watching,YouTube as well but lets just see how,far we can push it so lets turn on,another TV why not,play,okay so we have four TVs going and uh my,sons on his iPad and now were gonna,try and turn on,oh nope,I was wrong we have one more,on their tablet,and it looks like theyre also watching,YouTube,so this is the Xbox series X that were,logging into just picked that game its,fine yep,go if I gotta run to those points,see how it says B2 yeah yeah you gotta,go,B1,[Music],B2 go to anyone you want,B2,B2,and you see it doesnt have any problems,it doesnt appear to be laggy nothing,stuttering so we have all that on but,were gonna push it just a little bit,further Im gonna go turn on another,Xbox so then well have four TVs two,iPads one Xbox series X and were gonna,go turn another one on right now,Team Deathmatch,Ed,I apologize Im doing this with one hand,but as you can see,its working,so Im going to leave this on,lets go check on the other TVs,so were gonna head back upstairs,and well see if everything else is,still on and working,still working yeah,this,Im,good,all right lets go actually lets go,this way,still working,wow just made it back upstairs lets,check the other TVs,still playing,and again,okay so we have all of that stuff,running and I want to do one last thing,because uh short of turning my sons,gaming PC on uh I dont have anything,else to turn on in my house,so I want to do a speed test real quick,so,just to see what we get with all the,stuff on,so I am down in my basement I am the,furthest point away from the router,and even with my mesh system I dont,have one in my basement lets just see,what we get,okay so to recap we had,what four TVs going all with different,streaming platforms so we had Netflix,YouTube Disney plus and Philo uh and,they all continued to stream during the,test then we had,um two of my kids were using their iPads,and they were both streaming YouTube and,then we turned on two Xbox series X,consoles one was playing Battlefield,2042 no hate for the game,and then the other one was I think it,was like Black Ops 4. both were able to,connect to a multiplayer game online and,they were both lag free,and so I dont know,um what your needs are but I think,thats pretty damn good so we had like I,said Xfinity and it obviously it worked,really well for what it was but it was,just really expensive we have the,magenta Max T-Mobile plan so we are able,to take advantage of the T-Mobile 5G,home internet discount so we actually,get it for thirty dollars a month and,theres no data cap and it just works,great for us so the the one thing I will,say uh is that,if you want to PC game it will work,but,um my son even after we,added these in we were able to lower his,ping,um but with the power line adapters,but he still complains about lag and the,peeing especially if hes playing a,shooter it doesnt,you know like hell take I dont know,Im not a PC Gamer all I know is he,complains that it doesnt work as well,as it did when we had Xfinity Internet,so there is that if youre a console,gamer though whether youre doing PS5,Xbox Nintendo switch,they all work fine online so we dont,have any problems doing multiplayer we,dont have any problems with more than,one person doing a multiplayer game and,I dont know if thats like on the Xbox,or PlayStations and as far as like the,servers go so,but its we dont have any lag we dont,have any issues its just when we play,uh computer games on Steam is where my,son has problems let me know down in the,comments if you plan on trying out,T-Mobile 5G home internet how it works,for you I know its a mixed bag it,really just depends on how well T-Mobile,service is in your area and uh how far,away from a tower you actually are Id,like to throw a big shout out to my son,Eli for helping me out with this test,you wanna,and uh thats it that about does it for,this one so dont forget to like comment,and subscribe and,Ill see in the next one peace,[Music]
Is T-Mobile Home Internet Worth It? 4 Things to Know Before You Sign Up in 2022!
this is a video about t-mobile home internet 50 a month no annual contract no hidden fees ,and no data caps should you sign up keep watching i tested t-mobiles home internet ,service when it first launched but there have been some changes since then and these changes are good ,for consumers for starters you can now test drive the service before you commit you now have 15 days ,to try out t-mobile home internet risk-free that according to this t-mobile news release ,from may 2022 it goes on to say that if you dont like the service return the included gateway and ,you own nothing this is a huge development because when i tested t-mobile home internet in 2021 ,it didnt really work out at my location i cancelled immediately but i had to fight ,t-mobile to get my money back they tried to charge me a full month of service dont worry about that ,anymore and importantly the new 15-day t-mobile home internet trial lets you set up the new ,service while keeping your existing service as a backup so if t-mobile doesnt work for you you can ,just go back to using the internet provider that you already have but if you want to continue with ,t-mobile home internet and drop your existing service t-mobile says it will pay up to 500 in ,early termination fees with your old provider and the second thing you need to know before you sign ,up is that t-mobile phone customers get the best deals more on that in just a second but first take ,a look at the offer that is available to everyone 50 a month with auto pay taxes and fees included ,and the gateway too on top of that the price is now locked as long as you remain a home internet ,customer and to be clear that 50 a month price for home internet is available whether you have ,a phone plan or not but there are added savings if you do have a phone plan for example when you ,add home internet to a magenta max family plan the price drops from fifty dollars a month to thirty ,dollars a month for the internet service now for a single line this t-mobile plan is not cheap it ,does become a better value for families and for people who are serious about streaming magenta max ,includes netflix plus one year trials of apple tv plus and paramount plus at recording time theres ,a lot going on there and in may 2022 t-mobile added two more sweeteners for home internet ,customers who also have a phone plan these are limited time deals but they show how aggressively ,t-mobile is trying to gain subscribers the first is 50 off youtube tv for a year which saves you ,nearly four hundred dollars based on the services current pricing and also this fifty dollars off ,any streaming device like a roku when you have home internet and a voice plan on your account now ,to number three and this could be a deal breaker for people who have fast internet service from a ,cable provider or a phone company data speeds may be slower than you realize this information is ,from t-mobiles website home internet customers can expect download speeds between 33 and 182 ,megabits per second meanwhile typical upload speeds are between 6 and 23 megabits per second ,and look here during congestion home internet customers are de-prioritized and may notice ,slower speeds compared to other t-mobile customers the home internet service uses t-mobiles same ,5g and 4g lte network so coverage is going to vary depending on where you live during my ,testing in 2021 i only got one or two bars never a strong signal but if the service works as its ,supposed to and you get the advertised download speeds that should be just fine for streaming ,video and surfing the web so my recommendation is that if you pay for fast internet service from ,an existing provider run a speed test before you consider t-mobile home internet for example i get ,500 megabits per second download speeds from my 55 a month plan with at t so for me t-mobile home ,internet probably is not worth saving five dollars a month even in ideal conditions because i get ,fast and reliable speeds with my current provider at nearly the same price but for people with fewer ,internet options t-mobile home internet may be worth considering based not just on the price but ,also those data speeds number four t-mobile home internet is not available everywhere more than 40 ,million homes are eligible to sign up for t-mobile home internet at the time of this recording but ,that leaves out a whole bunch of the country this is the website where you can check eligibility ,ill drop a link below when i entered my new address you can see here that i am not eligible ,for t-mobile home internet at this time if the service is not available where you live yet you ,see there is a wait list that you can join to get notified as soon as it arrives and ive joined the ,waitlist for my new location i hope to be able to test out t-mobile home internet because the price ,is right and we really do need more competition among internet providers see you next time
T-Mobile Wifi Review: 6 Months Later
hey t-mobile gateway is this an adequate,work environment for you oh yes thisll,be fine i can work here all right thats,great just uh let me know if you uh need,anything okay,oh my god are you okay whats wrong i,dont know i i just cant work here,anymore i need to quit i cant do that i,cant do that that was weird ill get,customer support on the phone,guys the gateway just uh took off on me,well hello there i am the exact same,gateway but i can work in a better,environment okay good for you uh just do,your thing wherever you need to do your,thing okay perfectly fine sir i have a,good connection to the tower and,okay uh maybe if one of you guys comes,back you want to try working on this,side of the house now that would be,great we can make that work all right,thats fine,yeah this is perfect are you sure,youre gonna be okay this time around,should be perfectly fine i like it here,this is good i have a good connection,here all right good good just just,no more freak outs i cant take any more,connections very stable this is this is,perfect,its fine were good,six months later lets begin,so yeah we signed up for home internet,back in february and were not quite at,the six month mark but im ready for,kind of the update video itself if you,havent followed my previous t-mobile,internet reviews ill kind of give you,an update that the first month was great,the speeds were around 200 to 300 down i,was typically averaging somewhere,between 30 and 50 upload and i was very,happy with it i had it right on my desk,next to my computers and then after,about a month of use the service totally,died on me and it didnt work for like a,solid week and a half it would,occasionally come back online but only,for brief moments and then it would go,off again unable to even watch basic,youtube videos on the tv it was just,totally off customer support argued with,me on the phone for quite a while on,what the issue was whether it was,scheduled maintenance or a defect on the,gateway depending on the time of the,week they would have a different answer,oh yeah theres maintenance in your area,and then oh no theres definitely not,maintenance somethings wrong with your,gateway so they sent me a replacement,gateway and at first it was pretty bumpy,it was still unable to live stream,consistently for me but after a couple,of weeks and honestly once we moved the,gateway into a different part of the,house which is further away from my,computers and the most confusing thing,about this is basically we put it in the,living room and i know exactly where the,t-mobile tower is for the sake of my own,privacy im not going to video the tower,for you but basically the tower is,directly behind me here and no matter,where we put it in the house we cant,get like a perfect five bars but we can,get four bars on my desk we can get four,bars at the window in the living room,maybe the googly eyes are what fixed it,if you think thats cute my wife added,them and if you think thats cringy my,wife added them and even though its not,technically closer to the tower its,just in a different part of the house we,havent had as many issues as soon as we,moved it over there so im not trying to,be the troubleshoot expert here but when,i did use it for that first month and,then it started freaking out and not,working for like weeks at a time i was,using it on ethernet because i just,figured that would be the most optimum,way to have a solid connection that was,consistent for my live streaming,schedule and all of the videos i was,planning on uploading and again the,gateway said it had a very good,connection with four bars and everything,but it was more prone to having those,slowdowns or those shutdowns even when i,was on ethernet but now that nothing is,on ethernet and its in the other room,further away from my work computer it,seems to be fine and we havent had any,issues since that last big rant video i,posted its had great uptime just last,night the movie we were watching,buffered for like five seconds but we,can leave that up to chance with maybe,server issues i checked the wi-fi on my,phone and it was fine but yeah ive been,doing several hour long live streams,here and ive had zero frame drops in,the past few months and i dont even,think it would necessarily be an,overheating issue because when we were,first experiencing issues it was like,still pretty cool here you know it was,like the springtime now were in the,heat of the summer and were getting,several hundred degree days and the,t-mobile gateway is not near the air,conditioner in the house its in a,pretty hot location so i dont think it,was overheating in my office maybe its,either just not optimized for ethernet,use for extended periods and maybe i,fried mine just by pumping too much data,through that ethernet port or maybe my,first unit genuinely was defective and,this replacement one is just a luckier,batch but it definitely feels bizarre,that by keeping the gateway out of my,work office its actually able to,perform better even in here so all of my,live streaming all of my work is done,over wifi now nothing is over ethernet,and yet the connections have actually,gotten arguably a bit better the speeds,are of course very volatile you know,theres certain times in the week where,ill run a speed test and itll be like,100 down and around 30 up and later,times in the week ill run a speed test,and ill get over 500 down but luckily,the upload seems to stay pretty,consistent so still between 30 and 50.,occasionally i see it go over 50,megabits upload which im very happy,about because i dont really download a,lot of huge files so the download speed,isnt super important to me but with,comcast on their best plan with the,highest tier i could get it still rarely,ever broke the 40 megabits upload and,this one consistently breaks it and with,starlink you know at first it was around,20 megabits up and then as the year went,on it slowly got worse as i think more,people started to overwhelm the network,and right before i canceled it was,struggling to break 10 megabits uploads,so im very grateful i went with,t-mobile considering thats far cheaper,than both comcast and starlink and its,month to month i dont have to agree to,some crazy long-term contract t-mobile,claims that their price is not intending,to ever change on this which is good but,the speeds you get are absolutely going,to be dependent on the region youre in,so if youre really close to a t-mobile,tower your speeds will probably be great,or if youre far away from a tower it,may be kind of crappy plus youre also,at the mercy of the internet traffic,that that tower is facing that,particular day because you are,de-prioritized compared to actual,t-mobile phone usage so i get the,feeling that you know theres certain,people that come into my area for,different events or for work and maybe,more t-mobile customers are the reason,that some days of the week i experience,lower speeds and then when they all go,home and theyre not working or whatever,thats when my speeds get better but,luckily even when the speeds are at,their worst theyre still consistent and,stable and theyre good enough that we,can watch all the tv we could possibly,want and i can still do all of my live,streaming and working so ill admit,after i got that second gateway and it,was still kind of acting up on me i was,just about ready to cancel like i was,price checking xfinity i was looking for,comcast deals and i was very very close,to canceling because i figured after all,of these headaches and after all these,long talks on the phone about,troubleshooting were still getting,issues but that seemed to be short-lived,and i appreciate a lot of you guys for,watching and giving me advice because,some of you have had t-mobile home,internet longer than i have and you,basically double down and i can confirm,that the location in your house makes a,really really big difference even if it,doesnt logically make sense like i did,not move the gateway closer to the tower,its prett
