Sina Technology News Beijing time on September 14 evening news, the U. S. mobile operator Verizon recently announced that it will launch 5G commercial services on October 1 this year. This is not only the first commercial 5G service in the United States but also in the world.
Of course, Verizon's upcoming 5G service is aimed at home Internet users, not mobile users. On October 1, the 5G home broadband service will be launched in Sacramento, Los Angeles, Houston and Indianapolis.
Verizon says the broadband speed offered by the service is typically 300 Mbps per second and can reach up to nearly 1 Gbps in some areas. From September 13, consumers in the above areas will be able to advance the service, with old users (current Verizon users) priced at $50 a month and new users at $70 a month.
The first batch of users also enjoyed preferential policies, including free router installation, three months of free service, free Chromecast or Apple TV 4K, and three months of free YouTube TV.
Although the service is not really a mobile 5G service, it will theoretically provide unparalleled broadband Internet services. (Li Ming)
