I am glad I did not depend on this community forum for my decision to try T mobile home internet. I live in a suburb of Cincinnati and have been using T mobile for 6 weeks now. The first gateway picked up 3 bars signal strength but would not stay connected. T mobile concluded the gateway was defective and promptly sent a replacement gateway which I use with a Netgear Nighthawk router (30 connected devices). I am using a small USB powered fan to keep the gateway cool. I have consistently had download speeds between 200 and 300 mbps with a rare drop to around 100. Spectrum was 200 max. Upload speeds range from 10 to 30. Spectrum was 10 max. The gateway is sensitive. Rotating the cylinder about 30 degrees increased download speed by 50 mbps. Only one internet drop for about 5 minutes late one night which was traced to work on the nearby cell tower.
