It looks like 5G is upon us, and Verizon is gearing up to make a pretty epic announcement. Verizon debuting their 5G services to 11 lucky cities by mid-2017. These cities include: Miami, Atlanta, Bernardsville (NJ), Brockton (MA), Dallas, Sacramento, Denver, Houston, Ann Arbor, Seattle and Washington, D.C.
5G Mobility as a Home Internet Service
Before you get all excited, this won’t officially be the 5G that everyone is anticipating. This will be pre-5G until the real 5G standard, 5G NR comes out in the fall of 2018. What makes Verizon’s announcement so positive is that their rollout is going to be in the form of a Home Internet Service. Users will be able to power and use all their devices on this 5G connection like they would with their current ISPs.
Although Verizon has been coy about the exact dates of these rollouts, if we can glean anything from the Google Fiber experiment, Verizon might likely charge customers $50 a month for 100 Mbps, and $70 for 1Gbps speeds. It is said that these 5G services will be very robust and that their speeds and prices will be very competitive. This should be more than enough for many clients to stream 4K content and download PC and console games.
