SAN ANGELO, TX — A new internet service provider is coming to San Angelo soon, according to information released Friday.
Home internet options in Texas are getting a whole lot better. T-Mobile announced the expansion of access to its fixed wireless home Internet service in 57 cities and towns in the Lone Star State. Nearly a quarter of Texas households with access to T-Mobile Home Internet are in small towns and rural areas, helping to improve Internet access outside of major cities for everything from employment education.
Today, nearly 4 million Texans either don’t have access to traditional home broadband or have only one choice. And amid the pandemic, the Texas Education Agency estimated that 1.8 million students couldn’t participate in virtual learning because they didn’t have a broadband connection at home. This is unacceptable.
For millions of Texans and more than 30 million households nationwide, there is finally a real alternative to traditional ISPs. For places like Brownwood, Mount Pleasant and Fredericksburg, cities in Texas where more than a quarter of the population lacks access to traditional home broadband, the expansion of T-Mobile Home Internet means more families can stay connected to the classroom, work remotely, and communicate virtually. And for homes across the state, from small towns to big cities, this expansion means more people can finally ditch traditional ISPs — the industry ranked dead last for customer satisfaction by ACSI.
T-Mobile recently announced the Big Fee Deal, bringing the Internet to millions of homes for just $50/month, period. Landline ISPs have been doing whatever they want for years, adding bogus charges on top of the monthly rate, every month. And they got away with it. In 2020 alone, they charged customers over $9 billion in monthly fees alone. But T-Mobile Home Internet is different – there are no surprises.
- With Home Internet, you get a fixed price – it’s $50/month, with Autopay. That’s it. And no price increase after the first year. Or even after the second.
- There are no taxes or additional fees, no equipment charges, no annual contracts, and no data caps.
- Setup is as simple as it gets – T-Mobile will ship the gateway directly to your home. Plug it in, download the app and you’re connected in less than 15 minutes.
- You get speeds that will let you work, play, stream, chat, game and more.
- If you have a problem, our dedicated experts are just a call or a message away.
- And for a limited time, new Home Internet customers get a $50 virtual prepaid card. It’s a month of service ON US!
More than a quarter of Americans said they worry about paying their broadband bill during the pandemic. With T-Mobile Home Internet, you get a flat rate and reliable service, so you don’t have to worry. And now is the perfect time to sign up. Customers can also get $10 off YouTube TV and Philo for one year, Paramount+ On Us for one year, and Netflix On Us with an eligible T-Mobile wireless plan; Apple TV+ on us with Magenta plans for a full year; AND a free TVision HUB for all new Home Internet customers.
What people say:
“I’m encouraged to hear about the expansion of T-Mobile Home Internet – a new connectivity option in our state,” said state Rep. Trent Ashby. “It’s unacceptable that my constituents in rural Texas have few choices for reliable high-speed internet, but T-Mobile’s continued investment in bridging the digital divide is a huge win that will increase competition and help provide options. more affordable to Texans.
“Families in our city have been left in the dark throughout the pandemic,” said Anthony Williams, Mayor of Abilene. “With the expansion of T-Mobile Home Internet to homes in our community, many of these families will have a new option to stay connected – no more sitting in a coffee shop, visiting a library, or trying to get make do with just one mobile phone – New home internet options mean that children and parents can now learn and work from home, an option some never had.
“We are thrilled that our city has a competitive new option for home broadband, especially since T-Mobile already plays such an important role in our community, through its Customer Experience Center,” said Dr. Armando O’Caña, Mayor of Mission. “For many of our residents, especially those in rural areas, staying connected at home is still a huge challenge, and it is something that is no longer appropriate in today’s world. T-Mobile’s continued investment in the network in Texas is driving increased connectivity in our region.
“It’s hard to believe that in 2022 we could have so many homes without internet access,” said Dow Draper, executive vice president of emerging products at T-Mobile. “Thanks to the investments we’ve made in our 5G network, we have the additional capacity needed to harness the full potential of 5G technology and bring home internet to millions of homes in Texas and across the country.”
