Verizon launching its 5G home internet service on October 1st

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

Verizon claims 5G bragging rights; home broadband service launching in October

Verizon in the USA has unveiled Verizon 5G Home, which it calls a world-first. Verizon and others have been laying the foundation of 5G networks for some time.

Verizon says that 5G home broadband customers can expect typical speeds of around 300Mbps.

It will also provide Ku-band HTS spots over Indonesia and Malaysia as well as five additional Ku-band beams. Meanwhile, the Telstar 18V satellite was deployed into orbit above Earth 32 minutes after the launch.

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. There are no data caps with Verizon 5G Home. After that intro period, the cost will be $50 per month with a "qualifying smartphone plan" or $70 per month if not a Verizon Wireless customer.

"First On 5G" customers will get free professional installation and a free router along with the first crack at scoring 5G-capable Verizon smartphones as they become available. Given that the Chromecast Ultra retails for $69, while the 32GB Apple TV 4K retails for $179, we'd probably go with the latter (you could always sell it after the fact).

He never showed up for an OTA, he never showed up for training camp, and it was obvious he wasn't going to show up for the season. It was not a recipe for victory and coach Jon Gruden knows it. "Obviously, Khalil Mack didn't want to play here", Gruden said .

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. Initially, though, it will only be available in Houston, Indianapolis, Los Angeles, and Sacramento.

This isn't a true 5G mobile service for your phone, but a new way to fill your house or apartment with high-speed internet access.
