Verizon launching 5G in October

Share

Verizon said it will start installations of its 5G home-broadband service on October 1, in what the company says will be the world's first 5G commercial service.

One other detail worth mentioning is that this is not Verizon's mobile 5G service that you'll use with smartphones, which is expected to launch in 2019. Those prices included taxes and fees, plus there are no annual contracts for 5G Home.

The service is aimed at home users and offers 5G connectivity via a 5G Ultra Wideband Network. "Verizon 5G Home is ideal for consumers looking to "cut the cord" or upgrade from their current cable service". After that, though, the cost goes up considerably: Verizon wireless customers with a qualifying phone plan will pay $50 a month while the service will run subscribers without Verizon Wireless $70 a month.

Customers can purchase "new 5G mobile devices as soon as they hit the market", Verizon said.

Customers who sign up early will get free installation and equipment as well as their first three months of service for free.

What is 5G, and what can we expect from it?

Verizon 5G Home is only available in Houston, Indianapolis, Los Angeles and Sacramento, initially, and only in certain neighborhoods of those four cities.

Mayor Darrell Steinberg said in a press release 5G service will "expand digital access for underserved communities and boost the city's efforts to establish itself as a center for autonomous vehicle testing".

New automation software, a new networking processor, and a new operating system will help Cisco customers make the transition to next-generation networking.
