I live in a rural area an while I am pretty close to a T-Mobile tower, there are lots of trees. I just received the T-mobile home internet receiver and, so far after 3 days, I can tell this is not going to work.
My internet is currently through Frontier and I get about 16 up and 1 down.
T-mobile had promised me I would get 20 minimum down. Well, it is more like an average of about 10 to 11 mbps down. I have hit mbps twice during constant speed tests.
Sadly, this just is not living up to promises or expectations. It likely works fine in an urban setting, but the signals are just too weak in rural settings, or at least the one I am in.
T-mobile is very loose with there definition of areas where this can function as described.
