Verizon 5G Home Service Arrives October 1

14 September, 2018, 19:04 | Author: Joanna Little

To date, Verizon remains to be one of the leading Internet Service Provider in the U.S. Verizon said that their 5G service is a part of the company's effort to continue its "consumer first" legacy. "We're opening access to our 5G network because we believe the next-generation solutions that will ride on it will be the result of collaboration and innovation by an entire ecosystem of developers".

Verizon's new program, called 5G Home, is the first commercial launch of 5G in any capacity. After the free three months, Verizon's existing wireless subscribers with a qualifying smartphone plan will have to pay $50 per month and others will be charged $70 per month. The wireless telecommunication giant promised a free router and its upgrades due in 2019.

Verizon's 5G home broadband service, Verizon 5G Home, launches in select areas on october 1 at a cost of $50 for Verizon Wireless customers and $70 for customers who don't use Verizon Wireless. Well, according to Verizon, customers will see "typical network speeds" of 300Mbps to 1Gbps.

After teasing the first cities that'll get its 5G home broadband service, Verizon today revealed when it's going to flip its 5G switch.

It will be available only in four cities to begin with. Advertised prices include taxes and fees.

Strictly speaking, Verizon's fixed home broadband isn't 5G at all.

So that's a first for 5G home internet, but carriers are still racing to be the first to introduce mobile 5G service. Additionally, Verizon will not be putting any data cap on the plan. However, AT&T and others worked to push the initial 5G standard through the 3GPP earlier than expected, and as a result the standards group finished the hardware portion of the standard late a year ago.

"5G is here", said Verizon CEO Hans Vestberg. A complimentary three-month package for YouTube TV and a free Apple TV 4K or Google Chromecast Ultra are also included in the early bird bundle.

Verizon 5G Home subscribers also get first dibs on purchasing new 5G mobile devices when they hit the market. Good question. Simply put, 5G networking is the next major evolution of mobile wireless technology.
