It might come as a surprise to many that 4G will turn 10 next year. Feel old yet? With that said, it’s been a long time coming, but 5G is almost here, and smartphones are already being built to accommodate quicker internet speeds.
On Tuesday, telecommunications company Verizon announced ‘Verizon 5G Home’, the first commercial 5G service to launch in the US.
The service will be priced at US$50 per month for ‘Verizon Wireless’ customers and US$70 per month for non-members. It will not have a data cap.
Network speeds will run at about 300Mb/s, and can reach up to 1GB depending on the location.
Further, ‘5G Home’ users will receive a free Apple TV 4K or a Google Chromecast Ultra at installation. YouTube TV will also be free the first three months.
The prices include taxes and other fees, and do not require annual contracts.
Come 1 October ‘Verizon 5G Home’ will launch in Houston, Indianapolis, Los Angeles, and Sacramento, and will roll out gradually to other areas in the US. You can preorder the service starting 13 September at 8am ET here.
