California's Capital Prepares for 5G Internet

Verizon 5G Home Verizon

USA consumers can visit FirstOn5G.com to sign up to become a member of "First On 5G" beginning Thursday at 8am ET.

Verizon's 5G home broadband will go live on October 1st.

Verizon Communications Inc. said late Tuesday it plans to offer the next generation of wireless technology to customers beginning in October. Verizon's 5G service will initially launch in these Sacramento neighborhoods. After that, Verizon 5G Home will cost $50 per month for Verizon Wireless customers and $70 per month for non-customers. And Verizon says that early subscribers will be among the first given a chance to buy 5G mobile devices as those become available.

Earlier this week, Verizon announced that it will expand its 5G Labs to four new locations across the US-Los Angeles, Washington DC, Palo Alto, and Waltham, MA-to focus on developing and testing 5G technologies and use cases.

Verizon said that no data cap will be on the service, which is likely the best news of all.

The service, Verizon 5G Home, will be built on Verizon's Ultra Wideband 5G Network. In short, Verizon 5G Home customers should typically expect extremely fast internet speeds. AT&T is also working with Nokia, Ericsson and Qualcomm on its 5G activities. Aside from this, Verizon will also be the first ISP company to provide 5G mobile service to the public.


5G Home is an exciting Internet plan for home users because it offers more speed and there is free content.

But this is Verizon's big 5G launch, and the company's advertised speeds are pretty similar to what other fixed wireless providers like Starry and Common Networks are already providing.

5G is already the most over-hyped thing since the Y2K bug so Verizon seems to have chose to just ride the wave.

The first three months of service are on the house. The monthly rate includes all taxes and fees and there is no annual contract required. The initial free three-month promotion also comes with free YouTube TV access (which will cost $40 after the promo period) and also throws in an Apple TV 4K or a Chromecast Ultra.

5G is considered the next evolution in mobile technology that will create wireless networks faster and more powerful than the current 4G or LTE networks.
