CenturyLink mainly offers DSL and fiber internet, whereas T-Mobile 5G Home Internet provides fixed wireless service for residential homes only. The latter is newer to the market but already covers more than 30 million households. T-Mobile 5G Home Internet is a faster wireless connection alternative for rural residents who’ve been stuck with slow and unreliable satellite internet service.
Looking at download speeds, CenturyLink offers faster speeds than T-Mobile 5G Home Internet. Its highest-priced fiber plan has download speeds up to 940 Mbps, which is more than T-Mobile 5G Home Internet’s download speeds between 33-245 Mbps. If speed is your primary concern, then CenturyLink takes the lead.
Both CenturyLink and T-Mobile 5G Home Internet offer unlimited data and don’t require contracts with their plans.
