AT&T has various plans with different connection types like IPBB, fixed wireless, 5G, and fiber. Most plans include fiber, with download speeds up to 5 Gbps, making AT&T one of the top fiber providers in the U.S. T-Mobile 5G Home Internet solely offers fixed wireless service with its 5G network and has download speeds ranging from 33 Mbps to 245 Mbps. It’s new to the market but has slowly bridged the digital divide for rural residents who don’t have fast wireless connections.
If you’re worried about the value of getting an internet-only plan from either provider, AT&T’s lowest-priced plans cost just $35 per month. T-Mobile 5G Home Internet is within the same price range as AT&T, but it offers only one plan with a fixed wireless connection for $50 per month with AutoPay. It all comes down to availability and whether you want faster speeds.
