Verizon has announced the "world's first 5G network" and has made it available in 'parts' of Houston, Indianapolis, Los Angeles, and Sacramento. This is a momentous occasion for Verizon, which not only managed to beat its US rivals to commercial 5G, but every single internet provider around the globe as well.
While it may take years before the full potential of the 5G network is realized in terms of speed and coverage, Verizon will start off by delivering 5G Home speeds of “about” 300 Mbps, while throwing in a few exclusive perks to convince early adopters the upgrade is worth it.
“First on 5G” members get free service for 90 days, a complimentary Apple TV 4K or Google Chromecast Ultra, and three months of YouTube TV access at no additional cost. You will have to pay $70 a month for a 5G Home subscription after the first three months are up, or $50 if they’re already Verizon customers with $30 and higher phone plans. Verizon is further offering free installation and equipment, as well as exclusive access to a 24-hour concierge line to answer any questions in a timely fashion.
