Verizon Expands HomeFusion Broadband Across the U.S.
Verizon Wireless today announced that it is making its HomeFusion broadband service available around the country starting May 3. HomeFusion Broadband is a mobile data service that is delivered to residences via Verizon's LTE 4G network. Verizon said that it requires a special cylinder-shaped antenna, which is attached to a customer's home. The multiple-antenna design allows it to snag the best-possible LTE 4G signal from Verizon's network and deliver it to a router based in the home. According to Verizon, the router supports up to four wired and 20 wireless devices via Wi-Fi. Download and upload speeds mirror what's available to wireless devices accessing Verizon's LTE 4G network, with downloads averaging 5-12Mbps and uploads averaging 2-5Mbps. Pricing for the service starts at $60 for 10GB of monthly data, and requires a one-time $199.99 equipment fee. HomeFusion Broadband launched in six test markets in March.
