Verizon to launch 5G service in four cities in October

Verizon 5G Markets

The company will begin signing up customers for its 5G broadband on Thursday, September 13.

"Verizon 5G Home is ideal for consumers looking to cut the cord or upgrade from their current cable service", said Verizon. AT&T and others now expect to launch mobile 5G services on the standard as early as later this year. The monthly fee seems fair: US$50 for existing Verizon customers and US$70 for new customers. Verizon promises typical speeds of around 300Mbps, peaking to 1Gbps during periods of low use. Verizon is targeting cable customers to use 5G Home and announced several content packages.

Strictly speaking, Verizon's fixed home broadband isn't 5G at all. The provider's eleven pre-industrial 5G trial networks - in Sacramento; Ann Arbor, Michigan; Atlanta, Georgia; Dallas and Houston, Texas; Miami, Florida; Seattle, Washington; Washington DC; Bernardsville, Fresh Jersey; Brockton, Massachusetts; and Denver, Colorado - bear been deployed during 2017.

The 5G service makes use of Verizon's "ultra wideband" network utilising the company's small cells, fibre backbone, and millimetre-wave (mmWave) spectrum. However, AT&T and others worked to push the initial 5G standard through the 3GPP earlier than expected, and as a result the standards group finished the hardware portion of the standard late past year.

There are also no plans for a solo Superman film currently, but there is potential to revisit the character a few years from now. Ahead of those remarks, Cavill's manager Dany Garcia tweeted that "the cape is still in his closet", and that Warner Bros.

Verizon plans to launch its 5G services into homes, creating wireless home broadband services.

Verizon's network limitations have been a hot topic recently, since the Santa Clara County fire departments complained that a device with an unlimited data plan was throttled while they were fighting California's largest-ever wildfire.

Members of FirstOn5G.com, will get Verizon 5G Home free for three months in Houston, Indianapolis, Los Angeles and Sacramento.

The new speed is a very big deal, as Verizon notes in its 5G naming announcement: "5G is not an incremental improvement over 4G; it's a revolutionary new technology that requires a new approach in designing and deploying networks".
