T-Mobile Reduces Home Internet Price By 17%
  • T-Mobile U.S. Inc (NASDAQ: TMUSslashed the price of its new 5G wireless home broadband service by 17% to win more internet customers from cable and phone companies.
  • The new price is $50 a month, down $10. The six-month-old service is available to over 30 million homes, just a fraction of the U.S. total.
  • Last month, Verizon Communications Inc (NYSE: VZ) offered a $200 credit to new customers for its $70 a month 5G home internet service, Bloomberg reports.
  • The price cuts in the rollout of new 5G wireless services highlight the challenges of displacing reputed phone and cable companies.
  • About 106 million subscribers get broadband from cable and phone companies at an average cost of $65 a month. 
  • The price promotions follow weaker sign-ups for internet service in late summer. The demand for broadband access surged around the U.S. through mid-2021 due to the pandemic triggered remote working and learning. 
  • Price Action: TMUS shares closed lower by 0.05% at $125.40 on Tuesday.
