buy a visible sim for your phone instead. unlimited internet including unlimited hotspot. if you have a decent unlocked phone this might work.

Thanks for the info! I've checked the page, can you help me understanding this please?

Visible includes mobile hotspot with unlimited data at speeds up to 5Mbps, limited to one device. After 50GB, when the network is experiencing heavy traffic, your data may be temporarily slowed.


  1. Limited to one device means...? Would I be able to share wifi from my iphone 13 mini to any number of devices? (say 2 laptops, an extra phone and a chromecast)

  2. The temporary slowed data, it's not very clear. The first 50GB are limited to 5 mbps, and after those 50gb, I'd still have data but limited? After the 50GB are the limited speed usable for a zoom call or watch netflix? I feel 50gb would go fast haha

  1. when i had them i was able to share hotspot with 3 devices so idk

  2. it simply means you will get deprioritized on peak times

you don't have an ipv4 address, so only ipv6 sites like google and wikipedia will work.

contact support, although they don't have a clue. unplug the gateway for a few hours then plug it back

i have att dsl and it has gone down twice in 5 years. i have had tmhi for a month and it has gone down twice in the month.

give spectrum a try as it will give you roughly a 11ms latency and 99.9 reliability assuming there are no issues in your area.

the only thing tmhi is better at are upload speeds. cable is notoriously bad for uploads.

I'm more jealous of your ping vs anything lol but that's quite impressive overall! Maybe I should convince T-Mobile to send me a sagecom now lol

be careful what you wish for. the sage is crippled, has ethernet port issues and you can't even disable wifi unless you resort to hacks

Ya. I had to get a wireless bridge to connect my pfsense box to the sagemcom device via wireless. Wired connection is crippled as you eloquently put it.

hmm, interesting, never thought of doing that but i have so much stuff that my power strip can't handle any more. what i did was to buy a usb wifi 6 card with dual booster antennas and i only use it when i want to download something large. my speeds are 300 with, 100 without

this link is pure gold. i thought it would be dumb, as initially everywhere in my state says 100% coverage, however zoom in to the maximum. you can literally click in your home and see all providers that offer coverage.

the speeds might not be completely accurate (i.e it shows tmobile with 100mbps) but it's a very good indicator of which companies are around. no more trying to wrestle with every single provider homepage and putting your address to check. invaluable if you plan to move soon.

EDIT: technically these maps are in "preview mode", so go ahead and report inaccuracies so that we can have a better system. The FCC will use this to decide who to award $$$ for broadband expansion.

lol the speeds definitely aren't accurate

shows Tmo as 25 down 3 up at my house, half a mile from the tower. even before this tower got n41 it was like 250/30, maybe 80/15 at its worst congestion

to be fair wireless is so unpredictable with speeds i don't really care if the speeds are accurate. i'm more interested in the wired section

This showed me a high-speed (1000/1000) provider available at my address, so I contacted that company. They replied they are not yet in my area and may not be for the foreseeable future. :(

the irony is that data is supplied by the carrier... so file a complaint!
