The new 5G service will be available to customers living in four major United States cities: Houston, Indianapolis, Los Angeles and Sacramento.

Verizon says it will be the first in the USA to offer 5G services, with the carrier adding Indianapolis to its rollout alongside Sacramento, Los Angeles, and Houston.

Verizon's 5G home broadband service, Verizon 5G Home, launches in select areas on october 1 at a cost of $50 for Verizon Wireless customers and $70 for customers who don't use Verizon Wireless.

Service is free for three months then $50 per month for customers with Verizon wireless service or $70 per month for those without.

Fuel price hike: Bring petrol under GST to arrest surge, say experts
The people of Parbhani will be praying the state government steps in and announces a tax cut, even if the Centre refuses to budge. Opposition parties are demanding a cut in the excise duty on petrol and diesel and bringing fuel under the ambit of GST.

The upcoming 5G service promises to offer download speeds of around 300 Mbps, making it potentially among the fastest ISP products on the market. Instead, this is home internet, which Verizon is touting as ideal for cord cutters looking to ditch cable TV. Verizon plans to use these towns as new 5G labs to test out use cases. (The site goes live on Thursday at 5 a.m. PT/8 a.m. ET.) If you're eligible to receive service in your area, you'll be guided to the signup process. We also asked Verizon for the service's upload speeds and information about what equipment will be used in the home.

Verizon's wireless network already has the highest utilization rate among 80 mobile operators worldwide, according to a new study by Rewheel Research.

"To deliver the full potential of 5G, a wireless network provider must have three fundamental assets: deep fibre resources, a large deployment of small cells and critical spectrum holdings - that's Ultra Wideband", said Kyle Malady, Verizon's CTO. There are "no data caps" either. Non-Verizon customers will be charged $70/month. AT&T says its trials are providing speeds of almost 1Gbps and latency of less than 20 milliseconds.
