T-Mobile Home Internet user shares data usage of 95 TB

So someone decided to put T-Mobile’s “no data limits” promise to the test. This refers to the Home Internet service, which gives users 95 TB of data each month.

As shared by The T-Mo Report, An reddit user shared a screenshot of his data usage from his My T-Mobile account. The graph shows his monthly data usage on his account, showing that 95,136.99 GB of data was consumed for the month of November. There is also an earlier record of 1.5 TB, which is: “above average” than the typical use of a T-Mobile Home Internet user.

on his reddit post, the user shared that he “got a big download/upload going on for two weeks.” During that time, he was able to hit an average speed of 600-700 Mbps.

This is a truly remarkable achievement for T-Mobile as it stays true to its promise to give “no data limits” on its Home Internet service. But again, it’s important to remember that T-Mobile Home Internet users are subject to the same Terms of Service as mobile phone users. And according to the report, redditor may have violated some of the conditions:

  • Uses applications that automatically consume unreasonable amounts of available network capacity;

  • Uses applications designed for unattended use, automatic data entry, automated machine-to-machine connections, or applications that are used in a manner that degrades network capacity or functionality;

And this feeling seems to be reflected by others redditors‘ comments on the thread. While some have been impressed by the high data usage, others are concerned that it could trigger a new data cap that T-Mobile will impose on its users.

At the time of writing, the details of the original poster have not been restricted or terminated, so it is not yet known whether T-Mobile is aware of this yet. But the original message on reddit has already been deleted by the user.
