T-Mobile Tuesday app rejecting received code as invalid
I have installed both the Home Internet app as well as the T-Mobile Tuesday app. Home Internet app is working fine. I tried last week to sign in to the T Mobile Tuesday app but last week just as this week, I keep getting the invalid code message. Last week, I had the code resent several times with no luck. This week, I have only tried the one code that was sent, but I deleted it, re-entered it and clicked Finish at least three times with getting the same response of enter a valid code.
Being redirected to Chinese msn
This is a strange one. I started my laptop yesterday and noticed that the news feed on the taskbar was in Chinese. Clicking any of the news items brought me to msn.cn/zh-cn. Manually trying to go to msn.com redirected me to msn.cn/zh-cn. I thought it was malware on my computer, so I malware checked and deleted my cookies. There was no malware found and deleting the cookies didn't help. Then I tested all the other devices in my house. All the computers and all the phones act the same way. What's more, if I switch my phone over to AT&T towers, msn.com works normally. So, it seems obvious to me that the problem is with T-mobile. I rebooted the gateway and that didn't fix the problem. This may not be a serious problem, but, then again, maybe it is. I don't like that I'm somehow being redirected to a Chinese site. Does anyone have any suggestions/solutions concerning this?
5G Internet Service Oversold & Over-rated
Replaced AT&T with T-Mobile 5g internet. What a zoo! Replaced the 1st Nokia gateway with another because of dropouts of service. 2nd router is no better. I have had 7 "throttle backs" of service within 3 weeks. Service reps are nice but cannot solve the inherent problem of T-Mobile overselling their coverage with cell towers not able to keep up with demand and letting customers suffer the periodic frustration. I am waiting for fiber option from a more reliable carrier.
T-Mobile Home Internet Community
I joined the T-Mobile Home Internet Community in early March and received a couple of emails asking for feedback which I gave but recently when I click on the link from the email Norton puts up an error message stating: Dangerous Webpage BlockedYou attempted to access:https://t-mobilehomeinternetcommunity.com/member/v2/content/survey/32835?contentId=128588This is a known dangerous webpage. It is highly recommended that you do NOT visit this page.Did I join a bogus community?
Horrendous Service For Gaming
I cannot fathom how horrible it has been to try and game using their Gateway. Internet speeds are useless when I keep getting disconnected from Xbox and minecraft. I just wanted to do lan play and for some reason it wasn't working. I ended up resorting to my Hotspot just to play without interruptions. Absolutely ridiculous and I cannot come to use their service ever again. Especially when you have no control over port forwarding or anything.
I was wondering why despite decent speeds (>50mbps), I get video buffers, web messages not being sent, and long pauses to load web pages. Turns out the latency is horrible. Here’s my test a few minutes ago. 135ms download latency and 208 upload latency. I did an internet search on ‘internet latency comparison’ and found this useful comparison of different services. I guess T-Mobile Home Internet is still better than satellite internet. LOL Latency by connection type2,3DSL: 24–42 ms Cable: 15–27 ms Fiber: 10–15 ms Satellite: 594–612 ms
Great service and speeds for the beginning of membership, then unreliable connection and speeds become the norm? Seems like I read a lot of people have this experience with the home internet. I had this issue, and today switched back to the incumbent isp in my area. They have terrible customer service, but at least I get consistent mediocre speeds.
