      Looking to switch internet providers. AT&T is up to $85 per month. T-Mobile is offering internet for $50. Talked with a rep from AT&T who offered to lower my bill only slightly or reduce speed which would lower my bill.

      He warned that T-Mobile internet was slower and would not be suitable for our situation. (We are a family of 5 with 2 computers, roku TV, laptop and ipad).

      I realize that is his job, to discourage me from switching. Has anyone made the switch? Is so, are you happy with your service? Any regrets?

        Internet providers are only as good as the signal in your area.

          I currently have a an open complaint filed with the FCC against T-Mobile…..just say NO! Spend more money if you need to, just avoid them.

            AT&T is better. We’ve done T-mobile , then AT&T and now Verizon! Can’t wait to be able to go back to AT&T after this 2 yr contract.

              I have T-Mobile 50$ a month. I have had several devices going at once. No issues.

                T-Mobile internet is not the same internet as AT&T. T-Mobile internet is really like using wireless data and AT&T is actual internet.

                If you don’t have good wireless service at your house with T-Mobile you will not have very good success using their service to replace your internet.

                  AT&T told me two separate times they’d lower my bill. Can’t trust anything they say. They never did lower my bill, not once! I won’t use AT&T – they lie!

                    Look into the prepaid plans with AT&T as thinking they had a 50 or 60 plan.

                      I recommend going with T-Mobile home internet. You can check their website to see how strong their signal is at your house.

                      I agree, AT&T is just trying to discourage you from leaving their company.

                        I have Verizon internet which is very similar to T-Mobile, I run 2 Roku tvs, a MacBook, iPad and several Alexa devices just fine.

                          I had T-Mobile for a while in a desperate attempt to save money. They let me use the router for a week to see if the signal was good enough to work. I live nearby the store that sold it to me.

                          It worked decent enough during that week, but then got spottier consistently worse over time.

                          I couldn’t get service to just my iPad a lot of times and I couldn’t ever use 2 TV’s at a time.

                          I ended up switching to a local wireless internet provider, Sparklight, and I finally have decent internet.

                          I ended up qualifying for free internet through them because of my income. It’s only 100 mgps but I can have 2 TV’s going plus an iPad and laptop and it actually works so much better than T-Mobile. Comcast is in my area, and several people have told me their service is worse than T-Mobile.

                          But Sparklight has worked well for me.

                            Everyone is going up! Only thing is. Those specials where you get it for 50 a month for a year. Well when that time is up. You’ll get a big increase. Then there you go trying to find cheaper again. It’s such a mess.

                              I have had T-Mobile for almost 4 years now. Never had an issue. Family of 4 here. 2 laptops, smart phones, 3 smart TV’s, PlayStation, and a switch.

                                I switched to T-Mobile and it was horrible. I cancelled during the free trial and they still charged my account (theft in my opinion since we didn’t have the service) switched to Verizon ($70) and it works for streaming tv, an iPad a couple phones and a computer. I think if you have their phone service it’s cheaper.

                                T-Mobile might work but if not it’s a 25-minute hold before customer service answers and can’t help you.
