T-Mobile now offers fiber internet service in Manhattan

T-Mobile is offering internet speeds up to 940 Mbps for just $60/mo. in Manhattan as a trial run for future fiber optic investment.

T-Mobile is known first and foremost as a mobile carrier. However, T-Mobile has also been expanding its home internet service in the past few years. Its primary home internet product is a 5G fixed wireless service, but T-Mobile has also just launched a limited fiber-based broadband service in Manhattan, known as T-Mobile Fiber.

T-Mobile fiber speeds and pricing

T-Mobile’s fiber optic product will provide 940 Mbps for $60/mo. There are no data caps and the service comes with a Wi-Fi 6 router. This is a major upgrade compared to T-Mobile’s 5G home internet product, which offers 25 Mbps for $50/mo. 

Although most Manhattan customers would likely prefer T-Mobile’s new fiber product, this service is only available to a very limited number of buildings in the area. This is because T-Mobile did not deploy the fiber optic technology that it is providing. 


Instead, T-Mobile is reselling this fiber product from the small internet provider Pilot Fiber. Pilot Fiber currently provides fiber optic service to more than 600 buildings in the New York City area and claims to have just over 2,100 customers. 

T-Mobile’s ability to offer fiber optic internet, therefore, is currently limited. They can only offer what Pilot Fiber has deployed and is willing to sell to T-Mobile. For this reason, T-Mobile’s fixed wireless service will remain its primary home internet product. 

T-Mobile has not made any announcements about reselling fiber optic from other fiber internet companies around the country; however, that may come in the future. For now, T-Mobile’s fiber service is a trial run for Manhattan and there are no immediate plans to expand to other U.S. markets.

You can find out if you qualify for T-Mobile Fiber on its website by inputting your address on the front page of the site. 

If you’re not serviceable by T-Mobile Fiber, there are at least 14 internet providers serving Manhattan. With Allconnect, you’ll be able to compare the available internet types and providers depending on where you live in Manhattan.
