Verizon brings 5G network to four major cities in the United States. The four major cities are: Houston, Indianapolis, Los Angeles, and Sacramento.
The high-speed home internet service will first be available to consumers living in those four major cities first. And it promises to offer download speeds of around 300 Mbps.
Verizon will start taking orders on Thursday, Sept. 13. While the services might likely starts Oct. 1st.
This isn’t a true 5G mobile service for your phone, but a new way to fill your house or apartment with high-speed internet access. Instead of solely 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 ideal for consumers looking to ‘cut the cord’ or upgrade from their current cable service,” the company said.
Verizon Brings 5G Network But not For Free
Of course, you don’t expect such services from Verizon to be free of charge. Here is what you should know about it’s fees or subscription.
1. The 5G service will cost existing Verizon subscribers $50 a month, and $70 a month for non-carrier customers.
2. Early subscribers will get the first 3 months services free of charge.
3. 5G Home customers will also get YouTube TV free the first three months ($40/month thereafter) and a free Apple TV 4K or Google Chromecast Ultra device at installation.
To those living in those four major cities, they are fortunate as the 5G service won’t be available to every neighborhood in the four major US cities.
