Starting Thursday, Sacramento will be a pioneer in blazing-fast wireless internet

Qualcomm is creating new chips for the phones that will be required to handle the speeds and AT&T has added five cities to the markets where it will launch 5G mobile service later this year. Verizon final month launched that this is probably going to be bringing its 5G network to Indianapolis by the waste of 2018, with the city joining Sacramento, Los Angeles, and Houston in the provider's roadmap.

Are you excited to try the Verizon 5G Home Broadband Internet service? The revolutionary 5G internet service will be available in certain parts of Houston, Indianapolis, Los Angeles and Sacramento at the initial stage. Depending on location, peak speeds could reach almost 1Gbps.

The service, Verizon 5G Home, will be built on Verizon's Ultra Wideband 5G Network.

This means Indy residents will be among the first to experience 5G, which Verizon says will be much faster than your current internet connection.

This also helps Verizon in its rollout of mobile 5G in the future, which will involve a dizzying number of different technologies, hardware, and partnerships to get off the ground.

The monthly rate include all taxes and fees, and does not require an annual contract. The most modern 5G followed Verizon final week trialling 5G in Washington DC with Nokia, transmitting a mobile signal to a test van. Additionally, Verizon will not be putting any data cap on the plan. 5G speeds on smartphones don't come out until next year.

5G is the successor technology to today's 4G wireless, promising faster data transmission and lower latency. Verizon is probably taking a hit on the cost of service in order to get 5G service into as many homes as possible.

Verizon Chief Executive Officer Hans Vestberg is expected to give investors more details about the company's 5G plans during a presentation Thursday at the Goldman Sachs Communacopia conference in NY.

Verizon says that 5G home broadband customers can expect typical speeds of around 300Mbps. Subscribers can also choose a free Chromecast Ultra or Apple TV 4K when they sign up.
