The carrier says it will start offering the service in "certain neighborhoods" within those cities starting October 1, and will provide the first three months at no charge.
"Verizon 5G Home is ideal for consumers looking to cut the cord or upgrade from their current cable service", said Verizon. Verizon promises speeds of almost 1 gigabit, and you can order service starting this Thursday (September 13) in select markets.
Verizon says it will be the first in the United States to offer 5G services, with the carrier adding Indianapolis to its rollout alongside Sacramento, Los Angeles, and Houston. After that, though, the cost goes up considerably: Verizon wireless customers with a qualifying phone plan will pay $50 a month while the service will run subscribers without Verizon Wireless $70 a month. Well, according to Verizon, customers will see "typical network speeds" of 300Mbps to 1Gbps. Those prices included taxes and fees, plus there are no annual contracts for 5G Home.
