T-Mobile Considering Discontinuing T-Mobile@Home Service?


If you aren’t familiar with T-Mobile’s @Home service, basically it’s a service that gives you unlimited nationwide calling from your home phone, including voicemail, caller ID, call waiting, call forwarding, and call conferencing. It’s a landline service that operates by hooking up T-Mobile’s @Home router to your internet connection. This is not to be confused with T-Mobile’s UMA service, which uses a WiFi connection to strength a wireless signal. Rumor has it that T-Mobile is looking to discontinue the service according to a BoyGenius Report source. The new T-Mobile COO realizes that the company isn’t profiting off the service, and is looking get rid of it. We haven’t heard anything about this yet, so we’re going to take this as a rumor until further notice. File this under the rumor/overheard at the water cooler category for now.

What do you guys think, should T-Mobile get rid of the @Home service? Would anyone actually miss it?
