But Verizon's 5G Home service that offers even higher speeds paves the way for more data-intensive use cases in the future.
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.
"5G is the technology of the future, and our partnership with Verizon allows for emerging startups to leverage it as they build the next generation of products that will shape our world", says CEO of Alley, Jason Saltzman. Interested parties can sign up at the 5G Home website to get alerts when the service is scheduled to arrive in their area.
Verizon says 5G Home subscribers can expect average network speeds of around 300 Mbps with peak speeds of almost 1 Gig and no data caps. "After that introductory period, current Verizon Wireless customers with a qualifying smartphone plan will pay $50 per month for the service, while non-Verizon Wireless customers will pay $70 per month", Verizon said. Well, according to Verizon, customers will see "typical network speeds" of 300Mbps to 1Gbps.
As part of the 5G Home deal, you'll get YouTube's TV service free for the first three months, after which it will cost users $US40 a month. "This monthly charge includes all taxes and fees, and does not require an annual contract". Verizon's 5G service will initially launch in these Sacramento neighborhoods. In short, Verizon 5G Home customers should typically expect extremely fast internet speeds. Subscribers can also choose a free Chromecast Ultra or Apple TV 4K when they sign up. We also asked Verizon for the service's upload speeds and information about what equipment will be used in the home. There are no data caps with Verizon 5G Home.
