Popular Cell Phone Provider Bringing Internet Option to San Angelo


SAN ANGELO, TX – A new internet provider is coming to San Angelo soon according to information released Friday.

Home internet options in Texas are fixin’ to be a whole lot better. T-Mobile announced expanded access to its fixed wireless Home Internet service in 57 cities and towns across the Lone Star State. Nearly a quarter of the Texas homes with access to T-Mobile Home Internet are in small towns and rural areas, helping improve access to the Internet, outside of just the big cities, for everything from education to jobs.

Today, nearly 4 million Texans have either no access to traditional home broadband or have only one choice. And in the middle of the pandemic, the Texas Education Agency estimated that 1.8 million students couldn’t participate in virtual learning because they didn’t have a broadband connection at home. That’s unacceptable.

For millions of Texans—and more than 30 million households nationwide—there’s finally a real alternative to traditional landline ISPs. For places like Brownwood, Mount Pleasant, and Fredericksburg, towns in Texas where more than a quarter of people are without any access to traditional home broadband, the expansion of T-Mobile Home Internet means more families can stay connected to the classroom, work remotely, and communicate virtually. And for homes across the state, from small towns to bigger cities, this expansion means more people can finally ditch traditional ISPs – the industry ranked dead last in customer satisfaction by ACSI.

T-Mobile recently announced the Big Fee Deal, bringing internet to millions of homes for just $50/month, period. Landline ISPs have been having their way for years, adding bogus fees on top of the monthly rate, every single month. And they’ve gotten away with it. In 2020 alone, they charged customers more than $9 billion dollars, just in monthly fees. But T-Mobile Home Internet is different — there’s no surprises.

  • With Home Internet, you get a flat price – it’s $50/month, with Autopay. That’s it. And no price hikes after the first year. Or even after the second.
  • There’s no added taxes or fees, no equipment costs, no annual contracts, and no data caps.
  • Setup is as easy as it gets — T-Mobile will mail the gateway directly to your home. Just plug it in, download the app and you’re connected in less than 15 minutes.
  • You get speeds that will let you work, play, stream, chat, game and more.
  • If you do have an issue, our dedicated experts are just a call or message away.
  • And for a limited time, new Home Internet customers get a $50 virtual prepaid card. That’s one month of service ON US!

More than a quarter of Americans reported being worried about paying their broadband bill during the pandemic. With T-Mobile Home Internet, you get a flat rate and reliable service — so there’s no need to worry. And now is a great time to sign up. Customers can also get $10 off YouTube TV and Philo for one year, Paramount+ On Us for one year, and Netflix On Us with a qualifying T-Mobile wireless plan; Apple TV+ on us with Magenta plans for a full year; AND a free TVision HUB for all new Home Internet customers.

What people are saying:
“I am encouraged to hear about the expansion of T-Mobile Home Internet - a new option for connectivity in our state," said State Representative Trent Ashby. "It's unacceptable how few choices my constituents in rural Texas have for reliable high-speed internet, but T-Mobile's continued investment to bridge the digital divide is a huge win that will increase competition and help drive more affordable options for Texans.”

“Families across our city have been left in the dark throughout the pandemic,” said Anthony Williams, Mayor of Abilene. “With the expansion of T-Mobile Home Internet to households in our community, many of those families will have a new option to stay connected—no more sitting inside a coffee shop, visiting a library or trying to make do with only a cellphone—new home internet options mean kids and parents can now learn and work at home, an option some have never had.”  

“We’re excited for our city to have a new competitive option for home broadband, especially since T-Mobile already plays such an important role in our community, through their customer experience center,” said Dr. Armando O’Caña, Mayor of Mission. “For many of our residents, especially those in rural areas, staying connected at home is still a massive challenge, and that’s something that is no longer suitable in today’s world. T-Mobile’s continued network investment in Texas is driving increased connectivity across our region.”

“It’s hard to believe that in 2022 we could have so many homes without internet access,” said Dow Draper, Executive Vice President of Emerging Products at T-Mobile. “With the investments we’ve made in our 5G network, we have the additional capacity needed to deliver on the full potential of 5G technology and bring home internet to millions of households across Texas and nationwide.”
