Verizon Brings Home 5G Service to Four US Cities on October 1

Verizon 5G Home Internet

Verizon's 5G Home internet and TV service launches October 1st

Verizon says it will expand 5G broadband internet to additional cities, but didn't provide a time frame.

Verizon in the United States has unveiled Verizon 5G Home, which it calls a world-first.

Verizon says 5G Home subscribers can expect average network speeds of around 300 Mbps with peak speeds of almost 1 Gig and no data caps. Given that the Chromecast Ultra retails for $69, while the 32GB Apple TV 4K retails for $179, we'd probably go with the latter (you could always sell it after the fact).

There is a tiny asterisk, if you ask some critics.

As a side note, rumour has it that Idris Elba will be the actor to take on James Bond after Daniel Craig hangs up his jersey. Any potential casting would be "down the road" however, as Warner Bros .is now focusing their might on a Supergirl film.

"Verizon 5G Home is ideal for consumers looking to "cut the cord" or upgrade from their current cable service", the company said.

Go to Firston5G.com and type in your address. Speaking of which, the number 1 carrier has confirmed that the service will be available to order starting this Thursday, September 13. Depending on location, peak speeds could reach almost 1Gbps. Service speeds "should" fall around 300Mbps and may range up to 1Gbps, though that depends on the subscriber's location; there's no data caps. Verizon says its technicians will install the necessary equipment and configure the Verizon router free of charge. Verizon has announced that it will begin offering home 5G internet service in a handful of cities starting next month. After that intro period, the cost will be $50 per month with a "qualifying smartphone plan" or $70 per month if not a Verizon Wireless customer. Advertised prices include taxes and fees.

As part of the 5G Home deal, you'll get YouTube's TV service free for the first three months, after which it will cost users $US40 a month.

The labs will launch by the end of 2018, and will be kitted out with live 5G networks to help startups, universities, and tech companies to collaborate with Verizon.
