T-Mobile is making steady progress with its initiative to offer fiber internet service. It’s now selling fiber service in 13 markets, according to the “availability” tab on its T-Fiber website.
Fierce Telecom reached out to T-Mobile, and the company named the fiber providers it’s working with in each market.
- Tillman FiberCo — In Pinellas County and Polk County, Florida;
- Intrepid Fiber Networks — In Pueblo and Northglenn, Colorado; and in Bloomington, St. Cloud/Sauk Rapids, and Eden Prairie, Minnesota;
- SiFi Networks — In Kenosha, Wisconsin; Rockford, Illinois; Farmington Area, Michigan; and in Oceanside and Palmdale, California;
- Pilot Fiber — In New York City.
Fierce Wireless has previously reported that T-Mobile was working with Intrepid Fiber and Pilot Fiber.
And Fierce Telecom has been keeping tabs on T-Mobile’s newest markets, reporting that T-Mobile was working with Tillman in Florida and SiFi Networks in Michigan.
But today's news is just how many markets T-Mobile continues to light up.
The wireless carrier seems to prefer working with providers who build open-access networks. These networks are deployed by one company and then leased to multiple internet service providers, which can then offer broadband service to end customers.
According to T-Mobile’s website, it offers symmetrical speed tiers up to 2 Gbps. The speed tiers and prices vary based on the specific location. All of its plans include a Wi-Fi 6 router.
