Thank you to Verizon Wireless for sponsoring this post.
Ladies and gentlemen, I have some exciting news for you! In the fast paced world of technology, innovations and improvements are vast. Especially when you have Verizon leading the way with their 5G service!
Everything is about to change. Breakthroughs in connectivity, artificial intelligence, robotics, virtual reality, augmented reality, autonomous vehicles, wearables, and the Internet of Things (IoT) will all impact our lives in ways we can’t imagine. Underpinning these technological advancements is 5G.
The potential for 5G is awesome, but the potential to over-hype and under-deliver on the 5G promise is a temptation that the wireless industry must resist. If network providers, equipment manufacturers, handset makers, app developers, and others in the wireless ecosystem engage in behavior designed to purposefully confuse consumers, public officials and the investment community about what 5G really is, we risk alienating the very people we want most to join in developing and harnessing this exciting new technology.
That’s why we’re calling on the broad wireless industry to commit to labeling something 5G only if new device hardware is connecting to the network using new radio technology to deliver new capabilities. Verizon is making this commitment today: We won’t take an old phone and just change the software to turn the 4 in the status bar into a 5. We will not call our 4G network a 5G network if customers don’t experience a performance or capability upgrade that only 5G can deliver. – Verizon
But you might be asking yourself, “What exactly is ‘5G’ and why does it matter?” This is the fifth generation of wireless tech and will be the fastest and strongest service to date. Imagine having faster downloads, stable connections despite the area, and an overall benefit to users across the board, if the internet is involved!
One way to quantify the difference is in terms of download speeds. 5G will deliver speeds roughly 20 times faster than what is possible with 4G. Over Verizon’s 5G Ultra Wideband network, latency could drop into the single milliseconds, making lag times nearly impossible to detect. Data moves so quickly on 5G that Dunne has argued this technological breakthrough will usher in a Fourth Industrial Revolution.
Verizon has started 5G Home on October 1, 2018 in Houston, Sacramento, Los Angeles, and Indianapolis. Living in those areas, you can check to see if your area is 5G ready!
But don’t just take our word for it, check out these reviews by real customers!
Users will pay nothing for the first three months of using 5G Home, get access to three months of YouTube TV, and get a choice of a free Apple TV 4K or a Google Chromecast Ultra! On top of all this, you’ll get free equipment upgrades for a year and priority access to 5G Ultra Wide band mobile offers. After the trial period it will be $50 a month, with separate Verizon Wireless 430 phone plan or $70 a month without a Verizon Wireless plan!
This is the future as 5G Home is coming to cities all across America, these 20 were announced recently: Atlanta, Boston, Charlotte, Cincinnati, Cleveland, Columbus, Dallas, Des Moines, Denver, Detroit, Houston, Indianapolis, Kansas City, Little Rock, Memphis, Phoenix, Providence, San Diego, Salt Lake City and Washington DC.
