T-Mobile internet

Currently I have a base station with the Verizon module which works great.    T-Mobile internet (wireless) is becoming available in my area.
My questions are:
1) Are there any issues with T-Mobile and Simplisafe equipment?
2) I would have to swap out the Verizon module for the T-Mobile module.   Are there any known issues with the T-Mobile module?
Thank you.

Hi @cornholio ,

As part of our transition to 4G, we phased out T-Mobile as an option for our Base Stations. So in short, there is no T-Mobile module available. You're on Verizon, which is the default, and we also have AT&T as an alternate.

Of course, the Base Station does connect on its own, so it doesn't affect whatever service your phones are on.

@cornholio to clarify, no matter who does your internet, that for WIFI, you can still have the verizon sim for your base. Now for my 2 cents opinion: while using 4G on my old phone, no one had better 4G coverage than Verizon in my experience. Period.  Being recently on 5G I cannot say TMobile, Verizon etc etc but since your base will continue to use 4G for the foresseable future, if the Verizon SIM has worked I wouldn't be in a rush to change it. Again, my opinion only. you may have better facts than me. good luck with  your decison.

@captain11​  In the area that I live, Verizon has become slow in upgrading equipment and service.  Just got an email that my rate was increasing by $6.   T-Mobile used to be terrible, but is upgrading service and equipment.   People I know who use T-Mobile are pretty happy.   I’m signed up to get connected to their internet service.  There is a 15 day try it out period, so I don’t have anything to lose.

Hi! This post is 2 years old, had there been any update in supporting T-mobile 5G home internet? It would be 50% less for home internet than FIOS in my area (I only have 300up/300down) internet access. It would be a savings of over $60 per month if I could switch. I had tested it out with everyone in our house streaming, 3 people on their phones and a TV and it worked flawlessly with no wires!

Thanks,

Dave

@ddenbleyker​ I may have missed the point back then 2 years ago but currently, I have successfully used my SS3 system with Verizon Fixed 5G wireless with no issues. I would expect it to be the same with TMobile. Other than possible speed issues, should work fine. Note that the 4G SIM in the base is more than sufficient to operate the system properly, as it worked fine with the 3G Sims.

If I did not interpret your post correctly, my apologies.

@ddenbleyker​ As Captain11 mentioned, you can connect your Base Station to your T-Mobile network.
