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

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

Verizon plans to launch 5G internet and TV service in Los Angeles in October

After teasing the first cities that'll get its 5G home broadband service, Verizon today revealed when it's going to flip its 5G switch.

Interestingly, Verizon isn't hiding from the fact that its initial fixed wireless internet service uses the company's proprietary 5GTF standard and not the official 3GPP 5G standard.

Verizon says it will be the first in the United States to offer 5G services, with the carrier adding Indianapolis to its rollout alongside Sacramento, Los Angeles, and Houston. 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.

Using Verizon 5G Home, customers can expect to see download speeds around 300mbps with the network sometimes peaking close to 1 Gib.

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.


You've likely heard the term a lot recently, but what is 5G? According to Verizon, both of these totals includes all taxes and fees, and do not require an annual contract.

If you sign-up, not only do you get the first three months free, but you get free YouTube TV for three months too and a free Apple TV 4K or Google Chromecast Ultra.

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

The service is directly targeted at incumbent cable providers Comcast and Charter in those cities: "Verizon 5G Home is ideal for consumers looking to "cut the cord" or upgrade from their current cable service", Verizon said.
