Verizon 5G Home Broadband Internet Service is Finally Here

Verizon's new program, called 5G Home, is the first commercial launch of 5G in any capacity.

The service will have a limited availability initially, with the carrier saying it will first launch 5G Home in parts of LA, Sacramento, Houston, and Indianapolis. Verizon's also including a free Apple TV 4K or Google Chromecast Ultra for 5G Home customers.

While 5G standards are in the final stages of completion, Verizon says it didn't want to wait until they were done to start planning its 5G home service.

The 5G service makes use of Verizon's "ultra wideband" network utilising the company's small cells, fibre backbone, and millimetre-wave (mmWave) spectrum.
