Verizon 5G Home service coming to four cities from October 1

Verizon 5G Home service coming to four cities from October 1

If you are not now a Verizon Wireless customer, your monthly outlay increases to $70 per month.

Beginning Thursday, some Sacramento residents will be some of the first in the world to be able to purchase Verizon's 5G broadband internet service, which will start October 1.

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. According to Verizon, both of these totals includes all taxes and fees, and do not require an annual contract.

The 5G service makes use of Verizon's "ultra wideband" network utilising the company's small cells, fibre backbone, and millimetre-wave (mmWave) spectrum. There are "no data caps" either.

On a course where he once won the AT&T National , Rose shot a 3-under 67 on Monday to get into a playoff with Keegan Bradley . Rose ascended to the No. 1 ranking in the Official World Golf Rankings and became just the 22nd golfer in history to do so.


Now before you start jumping up and down in excitement and start hunting for 5G smartphones, we should caution that this is nota mobile 5G service. Verizon's also including a free Apple TV 4K or Google Chromecast Ultra for 5G Home customers. Instead, this is home internet, which Verizon is touting as ideal for cord cutters looking to ditch cable TV. "As a result of this initiative and ongoing collaboration, we will rapidly deliver the promise of 5G to our customers".

Expect Verizon to roll out 5G to more cities before it announces mobile service sometime in 2019.

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.
