Wireless carriers are getting into the residential broadband game, energized by the throughput promised by faster 5G networking. Verizon launched its 5G Home service last year in a few test markets, and now T-Mobile - in the midst of a merger with Sprint that is still pending regulatory approval - is spearheading a pilot program to do the same.
The Uncarrier announced today (March 21) that it's rolling out the new fixed service on an invitation-only basis to 50,000 households in "rural and underserved areas of the country." The only problem? Depending on where you live, it might not be a very good deal.
