Hello. So I got T mobile home internet, due to the best available in my area being AT&T (which I despise).
After running a speedtest, I was thrilled to see the results. I’m a big gamer, and faster is better! Or so I thought. Trying to play PC games, I was constantly errored out and disconnected. Wondering why, and getting pretty upset, I hit google to find answers. Apparently its a port forwarding issue? I’m not that savvy when it comes to these things.
My question is, is there any kind of fix? Or should I just count my losses, stick with AT&T?

Hello! I apologize that you are having issues with Home Internet. I personally use T-Mobile Home Internet for Gaming, and I can agree with you it can be a little frustrating getting it to work with Video Games if at all. The reason for this (confirmed by a Supervisor from Home Internet department) is because the High-Speed Gateway lacks the “UPnP” feature which in short terms is used to connect to certain aspects of a Video Game such as Chat Systems for example. Without UPnP, video gaming can be tough. T-Mobile is aware of the issue, and they are working on a fix, but don’t know when it will be released. I hope my answer has helped. Have a great week!
