“5G is here,” said Hans Vestberg, Verizon CEO after announcing that the Company is launching its 5G Home service, the world’s first commercial 5G broadband internet service, on October 1st.

Verizon 5G Home will initially be available in parts of Houston, Indianapolis, Los Angeles and Sacramento. Starting on Thursday, September 13th, consumers can pre-order Verizon 5G Home service at their website at

By being an early Member, consumers in Houston, Indianapolis, Los Angeles and Sacramento will get Verizon 5G Home free for three months as part of a special introductory offer available to “First On 5G” Members. After that introductory period, current Verizon Wireless customers with a qualifying smartphone plan will pay $50 per month for the service, while non-Verizon Wireless customers will pay $70 per month. This monthly charge includes all taxes and fees, and does not require an annual contract. There are no additional hardware costs.

Verizon said 5G Home customers can expect typical network speeds around 300 Mbps and, depending on location, peak speeds of nearly 1 Gbps, with no data caps. 

5G Home customers will also get YouTube TV free the first three months ($40/month thereafter) and a free Apple TV 4K or Google Chromecast Ultra device at installation. 

Kyle Malady, CTO, Verizon
To deliver the full potential of 5G, a wireless network provider must have three fundamental assets: deep fiber resources, a large deployment of small cells and critical spectrum holdings. We will deliver a revolutionary 5G experience that will change how people live, work and play.

Ronan Dunne, Head of Verizon's Wireless Business
We developed early standards that allowed the industry and hardware and software manufacturers to build solutions more quickly. As a result of this initiative and ongoing collaboration, we will rapidly deliver the promise of 5G to our customers.
