Adding to the benefit, Verizon wouldn't be capping their data plans on the new 5G service. Instead of exclusively relying on an underground fiber optic cable, Verizon's technology involves installing a router built with fixed antennas to deliver the broadband wirelessly.
What is 5G, and what can we expect from it?
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.
While discussing the pricing strategy, Verizon mentioned that the company's wireless customers will receive the service for $50 per month whereas the non-Verizon can buy the same 5G connectivity at $70 for a month. Residents of "certain neighborhoods" in Houston, Indianapolis, Los Angeles and Sacramento can pre-order access beginning on Thursday to get their service free for the first three months. Service speeds "should" fall around 300Mbps and may range up to 1Gbps, though that depends on the subscriber's location; there's no data caps.
Unlike traditional home broadband service, Verizon 5G Home Internet operates on Verizon's 5G mobile network (clue's in the name).
Verizon has elaborated previously over bringing their 5G as soon as possible, with all the chances to happen in this fall.

While Cora acknowledged the government helped Puerto Rico , he questioned whether it did enough . A Harvard University study in May said at least 4,645 died. "I said it and I'll say it again".
It'll only be available in four cities to begin with.
Strictly speaking, Verizon's fixed home broadband isn't 5G at all.
5G Home is an exciting Internet plan for home users because it offers more speed and there is free content.
Thus, Verizon will be able to claim that it was first to 5G, but only by a few months. Aside from this, Verizon will also be the first ISP company to provide 5G mobile service to the public. "This monthly charge includes all taxes and fees, and does not require an annual contract".
