After a long early life in a pilot program, T-Mobile’s 5G home internet service has finally arrived. The bar for decent, reasonably priced internet service in the US is embarrassingly low, so T-Mobile’s terms might sound like a dream: $60 per month, no contract, no installation appointment, no equipment rental fees, and no data caps. It’s a service that’s very much in its early days, and reviews so far note some inconsistencies in performance among other quirks.
The other thing you might want to consider is that T-Mobile is changing their Privacy Terms of Service as well. If you were already a customer you might have received a Text Message similar to the one pictured. It seems mundane – and some of it is – but what it is really saying is that T-Mobile will now be collecting information about your Internet and App usage to sell to 3rd Parties. These polices apply across their services so it implies T-Mobile is not just getting into the Internet Service Provider business but (expanding their role in) the Data Collection Business as well.
