Verizon 5G Home Internet: Fast enough for phones — how about your whole home?

The company’s new cellular home internet service offers the potential for gigabit downloads without data caps or contracts, and its availability is growing.

Verizon’s 5G Home Internet service first launched in 2018, and availability has surged over the past year.

Less than a month later, it came to Atlanta, Dallas, Denver and San Jose, bringing it to 12 major cities.
