Verizon Will Offer 5G Home Internet Next Month in Select Cities

United States consumers can visit FirstOn5G.com to sign up to become a member of "First On 5G" beginning Thursday at 8am ET.

Initial availability will be limited to "certain neighborhoods" in the four launch cities. Verizon said it is expected to be the first to offer 5G mobile service. Verizon is fighting with AT&T in the mobile space with AT&T claiming to begin service across 12 USA cities using mobile hotspot instead of actual devices.

Although Verizon 5G Home won't arrive until October, you can sign up atFirstOn5G.com starting at 8 a.m. on Thursday, Sept. 12.

After the introductory offer, Verizon Wireless customers with a qualifying smartphone plan will need to pay $50 per month for the service, while non-Verizon Wireless customers will need to pay $70 per month. And Verizon says that early subscribers will be among the first given a chance to buy 5G mobile devices as those become available.

Verizon Wireless will start offering a 5G-based wireless home Internet service next month in parts of four U.S. cities, with service coming to other cities at an as-yet-unspecified date. Depending on location, the 5G home broadband service will be able to deliver peak speed of 1Gbps without any data cap.

In some of its early discussions about its fixed 5G plans, Verizon executives hinted that the company was working on technology that would allow customers to install their own 5G 28 GHz receivers inside their homes or offices in order to obtain a 5G signal.
