Today, T-Mobile has announced an extremely limited pilot program that will be available to eligible US households. The pilot program will be limited to homes in rural or underserved areas and to only a "limited few" customers.
T-Mobile says that customers should expect speeds "around" 50Mbps and no data caps. You'll have to be a current T-Mobile customer in select areas. The carrier has announced an invitation-only pilot of its new home internet service, which will support as many as 50,000 homes this year. T-Mobile has said it feels optimistic everything will be approved in the first half of this year.
"During congestion, Home Internet customers may notice speeds lower than other customers due to data prioritization", T-Mobile said. However, it's unclear whether or not T-Mobile will throttle your connection based on usage.

Since the initial home internet rollout is invite-only, T-Mobile can control who gets to use the service. They'll pay $50 per month with autopay activated. Granted, T-Mobile is targeting parts of the country that may not have a breadth of choices in terms of internet service providers, and the company is also promising a service devoid of "annual contracts, hidden fees and equipment costs", which is worth its weight in gold in the residential broadband space. Most industry experts say that will increase prices over time, an assertion that T-Mobile flatly denies. With the 5G network that it says it'd be able to build after combining with Sprint, T-Mo expects that it'll offer 5G broadband service with speeds of more than 100Mbps to more than half of USA households by 2024. Yet both companies had previously said they would build top-tier 5G networks on their own, and they've both announced steady progress in building their separate 5G networks even as they seek merger approval.
T-Mobile's home Internet service is based on LTE for now, and T-Mobile has a nationwide LTE network with speeds that are about the same as Verizon's. And when it comes to competition, T-Mobile has been able to undercut its rivals many times in the past.
