That's the same network that will eventually service phones, but home internet customers will get the first whack. Verizon final month launched that this is probably going to be bringing its 5G network to Indianapolis by the waste of 2018, with the city joining Sacramento, Los Angeles, and Houston in the provider's roadmap. After that, Verizon Wireless customers with a qualifying smartphone plan will pay $50 per month for the home broadband service. We asked Verizon if a similar limitation will be applied to 5G home Internet and will update this story if we a get a response.
Verizon has said that there's no data cap on this service, which is the best piece of news. While Verizon's 5G Home service technically isn't true 5G, it will help the company as it continues to build out a faster wireless network.
Nintendo Switch Online And Firmware 6.0.0 Are Launching Next Week
After the one-week trial, Nintendo Switch Online will cost players either $3.99/£3.49 monthly or $19.99/£17.99 annually. The much anticipated online gaming service for the popular Nintendo Switch has a start date: September 18.
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. Verizon's also including a free Apple TV 4K or Google Chromecast Ultra for 5G Home customers. Verizon says it will expand 5G broadband internet to additional cities, but didn't provide a time frame. But we'll also need compatible smartphones, which we've already seen surface in the form of the Xiaomi Mi MIX 3 and the Moto Z3 5G mod.
Strictly speaking, Verizon's fixed home broadband isn't 5G at all.
Those who pre-order the service receive no charge for the first three months.
5G is the successor technology to today's 4G wireless, promising faster data transmission and lower latency. Verizon is also offering three months of YouTube TV to subscribers.
