From now on, users can connect to the Internet at home works on mobile networks of the fifth generation. Verizon introduced its first 5G network today.

According to Verizon and the city, the company will provide necessary infrastructure and a customer base for improved 5G networks down the road. The organization says it has begun offering establishments of its Verizon 5G Home broadband administration today and named Houston occupant Clayton Harris as "the initial 5G client on the planet".

The company's 5G home router will deliver ~300Mbps across Houston, Los Angeles, Indianapolis and Sacramento, on packages from US$50/month [coupled with a phone plan]. After leaving a three-month grace period, monthly subscription fee for using the service is $50 or $70 depending on whose mobile services used by the subscriber. In addition to these, they also get a free Google Chromecast Ultra or Apple TV 4K at installation, as well as free YouTube TV access for three months.

"The world's first commercial 5G service is here, We've formed incredible partnerships with numerous world's leading technology companies, the worldwide technical standards bodies, public officials, developers, and our own customers to drive the 5G ecosystem forward, faster than most had predicted".

Examining raw download speeds, one will notice that Verizon 5G Home in Sacramento won't immediately offer anything that blazes past options provided by competitors via traditional Wi-Fi modems. "It's been an incredible journey...and we're just at the starting line".

As for prices, the first three months completely free. This forum was started in 2015 and the partners include Verizon, Nokia, Samsung, LG, Qualcomm, Ericsson, Intel, and Cisco. Verizon promised it will upgrade its equipment to the new standards as soon as it becomes available.
