T-Mobile is bringing its LTE home internet service to more people.

T-Mobile has announced an expansion of its Home Internet pilot to 450 more areas, which it says covers 20 million households. The service uses T-Mobile's 4G LTE network and was launched as an invite-only pilot in rural areas in March last year, with the carrier saying it's now opening the service to non-T-Mobile customers.

T-Mobile's home internet service is $50 per month, with a no-cost hardware lease and no data caps.  

"We're understanding this massive expansion ... at a time when our connection to the Internet is so vital -- for work, remote school, connection with family and friends," said T-Mobile CEO Mike Sievert.

You can see a list of the new cities and towns online, but it's now live in certain areas of 27 states.
