Verizon Launches Fixed 5G Service
Oct 1, 2018, 7:23 AM by Eric M. Zeman
Verizon Wireless today became the first company to launch a live 5G network for consumers in the U.S. The new service is called Verizon 5G Home, and provides 5G-based broadband internet to homes and businesses in parts of Houston, Indianapolis, Los Angeles, and Sacramento. Verizon picked these markets "because of forward-looking state policy and local leaders who embraced innovation and developed a strategic vision for how 5G" could benefit the consumers and businesses under their jurisdiction. Verizon says customers are on already deck in these markets, and named Clayton Harris of Houston as the company's first 5G customer. The company's installation crews are beginning their work in all four markets today. Verizon 5G Home is built on Verizon's 5G TF network standard, which is not the 5G NR standard ratified by the 3GPP. Verizon says it will transition its 5G TF service to 5G NR service over time (at no expense to customers). Moreover, this is not Verizon's mobile 5G service, which is what would be used by cell phones. Verizon's mobile 5G service won't launch until early 2019.
