The initial three months will be bundled with YouTube TV for free, but after the promotional period ends, customers will need to pay $40/month to keep the service. If you are not now a Verizon Wireless customer, your monthly outlay increases to $70 per month. "This monthly charge includes all taxes and fees, and does not require an annual contract". In addition, Verizon will install the necessary hardware for free. Verizon promises speeds of almost 1 gigabit, and you can order service starting this Thursday (September 13) in select markets.

We also asked Verizon for the service's upload speeds and information about what equipment will be used in the home. Verizon says it will expand 5G broadband internet to additional cities, but didn't provide a time frame.

Verizon's wireless network already has the highest utilization rate among 80 mobile operators worldwide, according to a new study by Rewheel Research. "Verizon was the operator with the highest yearly average capacity utilization of 57 percent in 2017", while most carriers were below 20 percent and the USA average was 33 percent, the research group said. There are no data caps with Verizon 5G Home. "We've created the first-ever brand of community workspaces in the United States with access to 5G, and the openings in Palo Alto and Los Angeles will enable more entrepreneurs and industries to benefit from what 5G can help them build".

5G promises peak speeds of 1 Gbps.
