Report: Is this the new T-Mobile Home Internet Gateway?


As more and more homes start getting internet, T-Mobile has done its part to make this transition possible. One way they are doing so is by introducing the T-Mobile Home Internet Gateway. And today, we’re looking at what could be the new device. 

The T-Mo Report originally shared the photo of the possible device after it was sent to a few stores. And as they reported, it’s possible that the display units could arrive early. There are also instructions to keep these devices stored in the back until they are officially revealed.

If this is indeed the device, it looks like a complete redesign from the current Nokia device. Other than the T-Mobile logo placed in front, there’s no mention of another brand so it’s unclear if this is from another manufacturer. 

The new device has moved its screen to the front instead of the top. It also has three navigation buttons, which means that it has moved on from touch input. The screen also appears larger and rectangular instead of the circle design that can be found on the current model. 

While there’s no official word yet from T-Mobile that this is the new Home Internet Gateway device, the report can’t help but believe that it is. As of now, though, the device is being kept in storage until it is officially revealed. We’ll know for sure once T-Mobile says something about the mysterious device soon.

    Does it boost n41

    • Shaun Michalak

      or how about 5G??

      • Mynameisjeff

        N41 is 5g

        • Shaun Michalak

          I know that.. My point was.. does it support 5G at all, which would include band 71 also

          The 1st gen version didn’t support 5g, the 2nd gen did support n41 and n71 versions of 5g. Hopefully the 3rd gen will support all flavors of 5g that T-Mobile has to offer.

    I am still using the 4G LTE device but approved for upgrade to 5G. Order status shows it as back-ordered with expected ship date of Monday, November 29. Maybe I will be getting one of these new versions?

    I wonder if this new one takes a sim card too. I don’t have this,I went with the 100 gig 5g hotspot.
    A Youtuber put this 1st one thru it paces, found out it take sim card,he said in his video he was going take the sim card put it in other devices to see if it would work in them,don’t know if he did. I know with the hotspot sim card it will work in unlocked tablets,laptops,I don’t think it will work in unlocked phones. Has anyone take the sim card from this tried it in any unlocked device?

    Where is your pixel 6 coverage?

  • Nice looking device that I hope is more stable than The Cylinder. I also hope all UI online and in the supported app are much more advanced with user friendly data surrounding the unit.

      I have read where a lot of people have issues. So far so good other than it losing its connection to the internet about a week after getting the cylinder. Hopefully this isn’t a recurring thing. If it is a known issue, hopefully they will replace the older devices with the updated version. For me even with it losing that connection, it is more stable than Comcast ever was were I live. They seem to be doing maintenance all of the time and Comcast would go down at least once per day for a few minutes. Always when I would be saving something on a remote server.

    My hope is that they improve the web UI, add parental controls, allow for disabling NAT (to allow stand alone routers to handle this), and so much more is needed.
