The T mobile internet connection just went out saturday morning and never came back on. And since I work from home I needed internet connection and had to go back to Comcast today with an attitude. Looks like it's impossible to remove from my life because there are no other internet providers in my area

So Comcast is officially entertainment daddy

Everyone in your area had the same problem? And everyone switched to Comcast?

Few other people in my area had a issue with T mobile internet due to tower issue and they said it was no set date when it would be fixed so I wanna assume they cancelled too. I dont think no one is going to pay for something that they cant use

I am really curious as to the problem you had with T- mobile. I am working with a community group to look at alternatives to Comcast and T-mobile is one of the ones that has been recommended we look at. Also interested in what area you are in. Feel free to PM me if you would rather not put info out in public.

On saturday morning I no longer a signal on the modem and when I called tech support they said it was a problem in my area with the tower which is why the wifi was not in range. And since I need internet to work from home I had to cancel and go to back to Comcast

I use T-Mobile Home Internet as a backup, with AT&T fiber as my primary. Usually fiber is rock solid but last week I noticed some latency and sure enough, my router had switched to my backup.

If you work from home it’s a smart idea to have 2 providers. For some that could be using your cell phone as a hotspot.

Why not keep T-Mobile as your primary and then use Comcast’s cheapest plan as a backup? In my area 25mbps is $25 a month. Is $75 a month for both too much to pay to pretty much guarantee uptime for WFH?

T mobile is not eligible to be an option because it's been off since Saturday.
