Re: verizon and TMobile offering LTE fixed wireless home internet with no data caps
The thing is with mobile cell phone hotspot sharing, they will throttle your data past a point. If you got really good speeds, it may be worth considering the home internet, which removes throttling and data caps. How an apartment complex thinks its a good idea to force people to use terrible DSL, mind you its ADSL, not VDSL, in 2020, and prevents any other providers from entering is beyond me. I was told in my area, the minimum speed would range from 50 mbps to 150 mbps download, and at least 15 mbps upload, Which is an astounding 1500% improvement in upload performance at least compared to DSL The celular coverage map also shows a 5g signal, so its only a matter of time before they upgrade this area to 5g home internet instead of LTE, which will likely double that 50 mbps minimum even further.

As an aside, for those "of a certain age" (read: 55 or older), T-Mobile offers its unlimited 55 Plus plans at great prices as far as I'm concerned. My partner and I ditched our land line and our woefully slow DSL service and have been using the mobile hotspot feature of our phones as our exclusive internet service for just around 2 years now.
