Verizon 5G Rolling Out: City Coverage, Availability, Plans and More
Internet Bundles Broadband Deals Wifi

The first carrier to carry out 5G in the United States was Verizon. The 5G plan is a fixed wireless access (FWA) service for 5G at home only, branded Verizon 5G Home. Verizon's other 5G offering, introduced on April 3, 2019, is for mobile devices, which ensures that the 5G service operates anywhere 5G tower coverage occurs. FWA coverage is not nearly as widespread as 4G, considering that 5G is only in its early stages. In reality, Verizon's 5G broadband has access to just a tiny handful of US cities.

How to Sign Up for Verizon 5G Home

You can buy Verizon 5G Home through the 5G Home Internet website. Enter your address on that page to confirm that you can receive service at that location.

Part of the signup process includes scheduling a date and time for Verizon to come out to your house to make sure you’ll actually get 5G coverage where you are. If your coverage can be confirmed, they’ll install the necessary hardware and get you connected to their network.

During installation, you’ll get either an indoor or outdoor 5G receiver, depending on how strong the signal is. Verizon provides free Wi-Fi extenders to push the signal throughout your home if it’s too weak.

It could take anywhere from 30 minutes to several hours to install Verizon's 5G home internet service. See Verizon 5G Home Internet Setup FAQs if you have more questions about installation in your home.
