T-Mobile’s got to be feeling pretty pleased about its 5G home internet offering. The number of subscribers keeps rising — it’s up to over 3 million customers, per the company’s first-quarter 2023 report. At the end of 2022, the Federal Communications Commission included T-Mobile Home Internet as one of only 11 fixed internet providers able to cover over 5% of the US population. Just recently, the company made a splash with the latest American Customer Satisfaction Index survey results, which placed it at the top of all non-fiber national internet service providers. Not too shabby.

T-Mobile Home Internet started rolling out as a pilot program early in 2021, and one of my (now former) CNET colleagues, Rick Broida, was one of the first to give it a test run. By April 2021, T-Mobile announced it had launched its home broadband service nationwide. A short year later, it proclaimed it had expanded its availability to 40 million households, and CNET’s Eli Blumenthal gave it a try.

We’ve been aware of T-Mobile’s desire to use 5G to break into the home internet game for quite some time. But now that the company’s home broadband offering is established, what does that mean for you? Does 5G home internet offer something new? Is T-Mobile Home Internet a viable option to replace your current ISP? 

Locating local internet providers

First, the price is right: T-Mobile charges $50 a month (and that’s reduced to $30 for Go5G, Go5G Plus and Magenta Max mobile customers). On top of that, you don’t have to worry about long-term contracts or data caps. Pretty sweet, right?

Definitely, but it’s still early. Although T-Mobile Home Internet is currently available for over 50 million homes across the US, many locations and addresses can’t get it. While 5G is the marquee player on this bill, T-Mobile relies on 4G LTE to help expand its home internet service area. This means that of the 5G home internet providers, T-Mobile will offer the slowest speeds on average. But let’s dig into the details.

T-Mobile’s Wi-Fi Gateway is included in the monthly price.

T-Mobile Home Internet: Where can you get it?

When discussing any ISP, it’s always good to begin by answering the fundamental question: Can I get this service? T-Mobile Home Internet is available to over 50 million households across the country. That makes it the US’s most widely available 5G home internet service. By comparison, Verizon’s 5G Home Internet service has rolled out in approximately 900 markets but is available to around 40 million homes. In the meantime, T-Mobile is open to signups in over 600 cities but more households, many within rural areas.

Check the T-Mobile Home Internet eligibility page to determine if your address is serviceable.

When will T-Mobile Home Internet get to my area?

As mentioned, T-Mobile is the most widely available 5G home internet service. But when you consider that US Census data puts the total number of households in the country at over 124 million, about 68% of households remain ineligible for T-Mobile Home Internet. 

A T-Mobile spokesperson didn’t have specific details on expansion plans but highlighted that more than 10 million households in the current footprint are within rural America. Additionally, there’s a focus on expanding access for small towns and communities. For those outside the current availability window, T-Mobile’s site mentions that expansion could take six months or more and allows interested parties to put their name on the list for down the road.

That said, T-Mobile also announced a Home Internet Lite service, open to anyone within a T-Mobile service area. While that broadens the company’s availability footprint, it wouldn’t be right to include this as part of T-Mobile Home Internet, as Lite has a 100-300GB data cap. 

T-Mobile Home Internet: Plans and prices

Simplicity is one of the biggest things that jumps out at me when I look at T-Mobile Home Internet. There isn’t an array of tiers and options from which to choose because there’s one plan and one plan only.

T-Mobile Home Internet pricing

Plan Max speeds Monthly price Equipment fee Data cap Contract
T-Mobile Home Internet 72-245Mbps download, 15-31Mbps upload $50 ($30 for eligible Go5G, Go5G Plus and Magenta Max mobile customers) None None None

One size fits all

There aren’t many qualifiers when discussing T-Mobile Home Internet plans. It’s one plan, one price and no additional fees. The premise of 5G home internet is that, unlike typical internet connection types (including coaxial cable lines, fiber-optic internet and digital subscriber line), you’re not reliant on underground constructions and deployments to get you connected. Instead, it’s a fixed wireless service that provides you with a router that connects to a cellular signal.

T-Mobile provides its Wi-Fi Gateway device, a combination modem and Wi-Fi 6 router compatible with T-Mobile’s 4G LTE and 5G networks. As you can see from the chart, the only variable is the average download and upload speed you’ll experience. At the bare minimum, T-Mobile says all eligible households should see average download speeds of 72 megabits per second. Depending on your location and the placement of the T-Mobile Gateway, you might see download speeds as high as 245Mbps or more.

T-Mobile utilizes much of its 4G LTE network to expand its availability, so don’t expect full 5G capabilities all the time.

T-Mobile Home Internet: Why isn’t it faster?

The hope and promise of 5G and its capabilities have not yet been fully realized. My colleague Eli Blumenthal has wonderfully detailed the basics of 5G and how not all “5G” is the same. In summary: Faster 5G speeds come with shorter ranges. The farther the distance, the less speed on the top end.

For T-Mobile to hit the road running with availability to over 30 million households at its launch, it needed to lean on its 4G LTE network and its growing 5G network. That’s why my CNET colleagues averaged just over 40Mbps download speeds with T-Mobile Home Internet, and some households may get up to just over 100Mbps. Anecdotally, we’ve heard of some users seeing download speeds as high as 300Mbps. Still, T-Mobile’s FAQ section promises customers will “see typical download speeds between 72-245Mbps.” So, that may be plenty of speed for many but don’t expect the higher download speeds you might get with fiber internet or cable plans. At least not yet.

T-Mobile Home Internet: No hidden fees (with one exception)

One of the significant wins for T-Mobile Home Internet is its straightforwardness. There’s no pesky small print. ISPs are notorious for their hidden fees and trap pricing — they try to lure you in with enticing promo prices but then stick you with a larger bill after those terms expire. That’s not the case here.

T-Mobile Home Internet features no data caps, so you don’t have to fear data overage fees. There’s no equipment fee for the Gateway device, so you don’t have to figure out an additional monthly cost to tack on to your regular bill. It also requires no annual service contracts, so you don’t have any early termination fees looming over your head. These are all appealing aspects of this service and make it very enticing to try T-Mobile Home Internet if it’s available in your area.

All that said, there is one additional fee you’ll have to pay once at the start of your service: a $35 “device connection charge” similar to the activation fee you pay with many ISPs.

T-Mobile Home Internet: Promotional offers

In addition to its consumer-friendly simplicity, T-Mobile is sweetening the pot for potential customers. 

First, families with eligible Go5G, Go5G Plus and Magenta Max plans can save $20 monthly. T-Mobile also offers new customers a slew of enticing freebies to cover many interests: a free Instacart Plus membership for a year and a $100 grocery credit; MLB.TV for free for the 2023 season; six months of SiriusXM (a $66 value) and a full year of the Spanish-language streaming service ViX Plus; and you can subscribe to Philo TV for $15 a month for one year ($10 off monthly). Plus, home internet customers can participate in T-Mobile Tuesdays, the company’s weekly discount and free perks promotion. 

Additionally, T-Mobile boasts a Price Lock guarantee, which means no rate changes for as long as you remain a customer. It also runs a “Worry-free Test Drive” promotion, during which customers can try the service for 15 days with a money-back guarantee. Also, T-Mobile is offering customers $50 back in a virtual prepaid Mastercard if they switch over to T-Mobile Home Internet from another provider. Lastly, if customers are switching from a provider midcontract, T-Mobile will pay up to $750 in termination fees. That’s impressive.

T-Mobile Home Internet vs. 5G competitors

Regarding availability, T-Mobile is ahead of its 5G home internet competitors, Starry and Verizon. Starry is available in five major metropolitan areas: Boston, Denver, Los Angeles, New York City and Washington, DC. Verizon is available in more cities than T-Mobile (currently 900) but is behind T-Mobile’s total households covered.

However, Starry and Verizon have the upper hand on average download speeds. Starry customers typically see consistent download speeds of 200Mbps, and Verizon’s 5G Home Internet plans average around 300Mbps. What Starry and Verizon have given up regarding widespread availability, they currently make up for in the average speeds they deliver.

All three 5G home internet providers share freedom from all the hidden fees and pricing games that many cable and fiber ISPs play. With 5G, the monthly rate is the monthly rate. There are no added fees, equipment rental charges, data caps or binding annual contracts.

So, how good is T-Mobile Home Internet, really?

Regarding 5G, we’re much closer to the beginning than the end of where everything will shake out. If it’s speed you’re after, T-Mobile’s 5G home internet service might not impress you if you have other cable and fiber internet providers available at your address. But if you’re in a rural or less developed area where DSL or satellite was your only previous option, T-Mobile will feel lightning fast by comparison.

Overall, T-Mobile has positioned itself as a viable option in the home internet space, making it an intriguing player to watch as it expands its 5G infrastructure. If nothing else, since it demands no contract commitment, it’s an opportunity to try a different option and maybe even use it as leverage to negotiate with your current internet service provider. Hopefully, the more options we have as consumers, our internet service will improve in the long run.

How to teach a dog the command Beside. We teach the dog to walk side by side on a leash and without it

At the command “Near”, the dog must attach itself to you on the left side so that its shoulder is on the same level with your leg, and move in this position until you let her go for a walk. The dog must follow the command both on a leash and without it. Despite the fact that this exercise seems simple to you and me, for a pet it is considered one of the most difficult.

You should start teaching your puppy the command “Near” only when he already knows how to walk on a leash and knows not to push or pull. It is best to start training at the age of 6 months, as the “Near” command is sometimes based on severe coercion, which is not possible with small puppies. So, let’s take a look at how to teach your dog the “near” command.

How to train your dog to walk beside you on a leash

Put your dog on a leash and start moving forward. Give the command “Close” and pull the leash to force the dog into the desired position. Spend it in this position for a few steps, then loosen the leash. If your pet continues to walk beside him, actively praise him.

It is better not to give treats while moving, as this may knock the dog down and stop it.

If the pet does not obey (goes to the side or forward), repeat the command again and pull it up with a leash. Pull gently, without anger or sharp jerks. At the beginning of training, move in a straight line and at the same speed.

You can only complete this stage of learning the command “Near” when the dog moves according to the command. Even if your pet has only walked 5 steps nearby, it doesn’t matter. Loosen the leash even more, take a step to the side and say “walk”. Now you can give your pet a treat.

Do not end the session or reward the dog if it pulls on the leash, leans to the side, or leaves the “near” position before you have commanded “walk”.

Walking side by side on a slack leash

When the dog understands what is required of him, start walking him “side by side” on a completely slack leash. In this case, the dog will most likely violate the command, and you will have to correct him. Now, as a punishment, use a jerk with a leash (for puppies, it should be mild). Before you make a dash, be sure to say the command “Near”.

Change of pace and direction

When you can walk in a straight line, try to teach the dog to walk side by side at a different pace and with a change of direction. This is how you do it: tell the dog to walk alongside and take a few steps in a straight line, then smoothly change the speed (or direction). If the dog moves to the side or forward, repeat “Near” and use the leash to help the dog into the correct position. When the dog has done everything right, praise him.

Please note that the repeated command “Near” when changing the tempo is not a call to action, but a compulsion. If the verbal command does not help, pull the dog on the leash. You must teach the dog to follow the change in pace and direction on its own. However, remember that the dog will not be able to follow too abrupt changes in speed and direction, so it makes no sense to demand this from him.

How to teach a dog to walk beside without a leash

You can train your dog to the “Near” command off a leash no earlier than at the age of 6 months, while the pet must move well “near” on a leash.

Take a longer leash and at first proceed in the same way as in the first step – give the command when the dog walks on a completely loose leash. However, gradually increase the distance of giving the command (if the dog is further than 5 meters from you, then first you need to give the command “To me”, and only then “Next”).

When the dog has learned to follow the command from a distance of 4-5 meters, try to command even when he walks without a leash. Remember: in order for the pet to perfectly follow the command off-leash, he must regularly walk “next to” on a leash. If you are lazy and force the dog to walk “nearby” only without a leash, then in a week it will stop obeying.

Common mistakes

  • The worst mistake is to give the command after the pull. Stay in control and watch your movements.
  • Changing speed or direction too frequently.
  • Driving a dog on a fully taut leash.
  • Command repeated too often. Some owners repeat the command every time they think the dog moves away. If the dog knows what is required of him and deviates slightly, then just gently correct him with a leash. Use the command and jerk only if the dog really stopped obeying.
  • Threatening tone when giving a command. In this case, the dog may begin to perceive walking nearby as a punishment.

DANILA STANISLAVSKY: CSKA IS NOT JUST LETTERS, IT’S A WHOLE FAMILY

Defender of the army system Danila Stanislavsky spoke about hockey in his life, family, difficult moments of his career and what it means to him to be part of CSKA.

— How did your history with hockey begin? The beginning of a career, playing hockey, who led how it all began. Did you have any memorable moments from childhood?

– It all started in Chekhov’s Vityaz, where my father worked as a physical training coach. I was 5 years old, I communicated with many players of the team, made friends, I remember everyone well. The head coach then was Canadian Michael Krushelnicki, who treated me very well, often invited me into the locker room, sitting next to one of the players!

– Who decided to send you to this sport?

– I accepted the desire to play hockey, so to speak, on my own, asking my dad to take me to the ice. It seems to me that he didn’t expect this, he wasn’t ready, but from the first days he supported me, put together some kind of used uniform, an adult helmet on his head, like a bucket, and went to the first training session, and that’s how it all started.

– How did it go?

– After Vityaz, he moved to Dynamo, then there was a CSKA club with coach Vladimir Fedorovich Kramskoy. Then another round of fate – Moscow “Spartak”, where it was not possible to get enough playing practice. Tired of being nervous, I almost quit hockey. But in the most difficult period, the former Vityaz player Sergei Zubarev supported me, inviting me to Yantar, where at that time he was the deputy director of the school and a coach. I was assigned to a team a year older, plus they invited me to training in 2001. There was a lot of playing time there, sometimes I even changed my role to an attacker, but in the end I realized that mine was defense. Then the pandemic comes, there are no trainings at Yantar, dad called Vladimir Fedorovich Kramskoy and asked me to take a look. I am very grateful to Kramskoy that he agreed, after several weeks of viewing, they told me that they were ready to take me. This is how my return to CSKA happened.

– Tell us a little about your family.

— My mother works for a large company that supplies sports nutrition to the Russian market. Dad is still a coach, he works in a fitness club as a personal trainer, by the way, I go through strength training before all seasons under his guidance. I would especially like to say about my grandfather, who has supported me all my life, sometimes harshly criticizing, but constantly taking care of me. While I was growing up, he constantly drove to training and games, he is my most devoted fan, I see him at every home game and greet him, he always sits in the same place!

— Who are you studying for?

– I’m studying to be a hockey coach at the State Center for Sports and Physical Culture.

– How did you decide to go in this particular direction?

– I chose the direction without thinking twice, I made my life choice in favor of hockey, and I am not going to part with it, even at the end of my career.

– Do any of our players study with you?

– There are a lot of guys I know in the group, one of them is my teammate Danya Dorneanu.

– Do you have a hobby?

– My hobbies are somehow connected with sports, since childhood I wanted to try everything, I was engaged in kickboxing, now I really like basketball, football, I often go to play billiards.

— What new things would you like to learn in life?

“I want to learn how to play tennis.

– A little about your tastes.

– In my free time, I watch a lot of films, as such I don’t have a particular favorite genre, but from the last one I watched, I can single out Green Book, The Gentlemen. In music, as in films, I am a music lover.

– Do you have a place you would like to visit?

– At the age of 9-10 years old, I flew to Spain with my family. Only pleasant memories remain in my memory. Most of all I remember a trip to one of the largest amusement parks “Port Aventura”. So, now at a conscious age, I really want to visit this country again. Learn more about their culture, visit significant places.

– The most vivid memory during the game in the “Red Army”.

– In fact, during the game in the “Red Army” a mountain of vivid and positive memories has accumulated. But, of course, I can single out my debut goal against SKA-Varyag. These emotions were unforgettable, as were the emotions from the set record of 23 wins without defeat. It was one of the toughest games of the season. And, of course, reaching the finals of the JHL championship, although we didn’t manage to take the coveted trophy then, nevertheless, the season was very bright and eventful!

— What is the main goal you would like to set for yourself for the coming season?

– The main goal for the season is, of course, the cup! A lot of young and ambitious guys join the team, I think we have good chances to win this year. And of course, one of the most important goals for the season is the debut in the leagues above. I would be happy to have the opportunity to participate in games for all 3 teams of the CSKA system!

– What qualities should a real hockey player have?

– I consider diligence to be the main quality of a hockey player, it’s not for nothing that there is a saying that every success is 1% of talent and 99% of work, and most importantly, the higher you climb in your career, the more work you have to put in, not allowing yourself to “rest on your laurels” or seconds! With the understanding that there are no trifles or routine in the training and playing process, every effort is in the piggy bank!

— And what would you like to develop in yourself?

– The maximum possible physical form and skill.
