    800 down and 170 up for $50/month, if you already have their cell service, seems like a pretty good deal to me.... Especially with no usage caps...

    It's still a good deal at $70/month. There are no usage caps, no contract, no tax, and no equipment charge.

    Especially since the first 3 months are free anyways. If one doesn't like the service just switch after 3 months

    Are they still using the same guys that told Verizon to go with CDMA? Perhaps they hired the guys that told Sprint that it was a good idea to buy Nextel? No, they don't have very sharp analysts or engineers.

    This is corporate America we're talking about. Just as with stock fund managers, they try and fail and try and fail. Sometimes they succeed and sometimes they fail. The ones that succeed are called "sharp," but we know that they're really just lucky.

    5G is the perfect technology to replace my $30 per month wired internet with a $70 per month wireless internet. But, it'll only work if I'm willing to pay $40 more a month for faster service that I don't need and won't use.

    Why be a hater? Anyway where do you get internet for $30 a month? where Verizon is deploying Comast and Charter are the main ISPs and they charge near $70 for slower speeds

    This. I pay $35/month currently for my home internet service, which is terrible but the only fixed home solution available where I live. I would pay $100/month with a smile if 5G launched here tomorrow. And would actually pay more than that without complaining. At $50/month, I would be in heaven.

    I would pay 200.00 or more a month for 5g, but I will never see MM Wave 5g where i live in my lifetime. Cities will be cherry picked for that fact.

Now att is using true 5GNR tech from what I've seen for their mobile roll out eoy

    if verizons LTE can get this type of speeds ill be more than happy to ditch comcast...im on their so called "GIG" plan 986Mbps down and only 35Mbps upload which is the highest speed comcast offers...i do alot of remote into my computer transferring files around and what not...35Mbps is to slow would love to have that 500Mbps upload!

    Not a hater. A realist.

    Xfinity (Comcast) is charging $29.99 for 12 months.
    Frontier is at $29.99 for 12 months.
    Cox is at $39.99 for 12 months.
    AT&T only charges $50.00 a month for 12 months.

    Did you look at the speeds that they're posting on the 5G phones? Who needs that kind of speed on a phone? I'm already getting 100MB down on LTE, and that's about 50x faster than I need.

    I wonder why the upload isn’t higher. Maybe they’re using sub-6 GHz as the PCC and mmWave as supplementary downlink.

    verizon told me that the upload speeds are 30% slower than the download speeds

    UL isn’t higher as they’re using 4G as the anchor band for now.

    Having LTE as the anchor band doesn't prevent you from using 5G for uplink.

    There's a few reasons for the slower UL. TDD subframe ratio, MIMO layers and modulation.

    These initial speeds are not very impressive. We have similar speeds in Toronto on LTE.
