Verizon 5G Home service coming next month

The new 5G service will be available to customers living in four major USA cities: Houston, Indianapolis, Los Angeles and Sacramento.

Verizon revealed the upcoming service this evening, stating that potential customers can check out all the details on its new FirstOn5G.com website starting this upcoming Thursday; the service's launch takes place on October 1 and will involve the company's own proprietary 5G standard.

You've likely heard the term a lot recently, but what is 5G? In short, Verizon 5G Home customers should typically expect extremely fast internet speeds. But if you sign up early, you'll be charged nothing for the first three months.

Verizon said its 300Mbps to 1Gbps download speeds are achieved with "deep fiber resources throughout the network" and "a large deployment of small cells".

While Verizon said its wireless home Internet service will have no data caps, Verizon's "unlimited" mobile services can be throttled during times of network congestion after customers use a certain amount each month. I'm sure that's something early adopters will put to the test. Instead, this is home internet, which Verizon is touting as ideal for cord cutters looking to ditch cable TV.

Verizon's 5G operates on millimeter wave spectrum - Verizon's slice of the airwaves is around 28GHz. Everyone else pays $70 per month.

Verizon has talked extensively about bringing 5G service to it customers and even confirmed its plans to make it available as soon as this fall. This is as much about promoting its 5G network as it is about selling people 5G home internet.

There are admittedly some pretty good freebies flowing here - free installation, three months of free service, a free Chromecast or Apple TV 4K and three months of free YouTube TV, plus priority to purchase the first 5G mobile device when it's available.
