Verizon Expands Their 5G Testing to Four New Towns

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

The New York-based telecom carrier plans to offer the service for $50 per month to existing subscribers and new customers will be charged $70 per month.

In Verizon's case, wireless 5G technology is replacing the typical wired home broadband internet service.

The age of 5G is upon us, even if it's not coming to phones quite yet. As VentureBeat reports, the confirmation and availability detail puts an end to two of the biggest mysteries around Verizon's fixed 5G broadband service.

Installation and a free router is also included, along with router upgrades when they become available in 2019. Depending on location, peak speeds could reach almost 1Gbps.


5G Home Service, brought to us by Verizon, uses next-gen wireless technology to offer home internet service with a cable or fiber hookup.

The wireless telecommunication company further committed to roll-out the 5G broadband connectivity for consumers in more areas soon. T-Mobile earlier said its 5G will be available in 30 cities across the US.

Unlike conventional cable services, Verizon won't offer a TV subscription.

Though Verizon's 5G commercial service is not the true 5G mobile connectivity that the company promised in December previous year, it emphasized that the 5G Home service is constructed on its proprietary 5G TF standard. The labs will birth by the waste of 2018, and is probably going to be kitted out with dwell 5G networks to back startups, universities, and tech companies to collaborate with Verizon. The initial free three-month promotion also comes with free YouTube TV access (which will cost $40 after the promo period) and also throws in an Apple TV 4K or a Chromecast Ultra. Additionally, Verizon will not be putting any data cap on the plan. Verizon is probably taking a hit on the cost of service in order to get 5G service into as many homes as possible. The major difference with 5G is that it's much faster and can be used outside of mobile uses, such as home internet. Verizon has stated that the monthly charge "includes all taxes and fees, and does not require an annual contract".
