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

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

Verizon in the U.S. has unveiled Verizon 5G Home, which it calls a world-first. Instead of exclusively relying on an underground fiber optic cable, Verizon's technology simply involves installing a router built with fixed antennas to deliver the broadband wirelessly. Verizon 5G Home is only available in Houston, Indianapolis, Los Angeles and Sacramento, initially, and only in certain neighborhoods of those four cities. Priced at $50 for people who already have Verizon wireless and$70 for those who don't, it's promising speeds of "around 300 Mbps" up to 1 Gbps, with no data caps. Taxes and fees are included in that rate, and there's no annual contract. 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). You will also have access to a dedicated 5G service team should you need support.

As a bonus, Verizon says that 5G Home customers get the ability to be first to 5G mobile phone purchases, once those are made available. "As our 5G technology partners bring that hardware, software, chipsets and devices to market on the 3GPP 5G NR standard, we'll upgrade First On 5G Members to that equipment at no charge".

Verizon has been additionally improving its LTE networks, in October adding Massive Multiple-Input Multiple-Output (Massive MIMO) technology across its wireless network in Irvine, California, increasing network capacity and speeds for customers in partnership with Ericsson.

Launching a 5G broadband service has been part of Verizon's 5G roll-out for a while, as the carrier gears up toward launching its 5G mobile network next year.
