    I am considering using Google Fi with 5G support. I live in a rural area. While there is 5G service, the speed is marginal due to the distance. I would like to enhance the signal for better performance. As 5G is provided through T-Mobile, I went to their website and see they provide a Nokia Fastmile gateway for signal enhancement. But they do not sell it; it is part of a plan.

    How might I obtain a device to enhance my signal that I can be assured will work with the T-Mobile service?

    Firstly, unless this is a backup that won't see significant data use I don't see much benefit to using Fi for such a device as data can cost you an arm and a leg.
    Second - if 5G is weak, it'll be weak on that device as well.

    You'd be better off if you can get land-based internet. Or, see if you can sign up for Starlink, Elon Musk's satellite-based internet. Linus Tech Tips did a quick assessment of it and found it to be decent.
