    Verizon’s 5G network is now in parts of 35 cities, while its fixed wireless 5G Home product is currently in six markets. The plan is to be in more than 60 cities with its mobile Ultra Wideband 5G service by the end of 2020, and it expects to be in 10 markets with its 5G Home fixed wireless access (FWA) service this year.

    “The Internet wasn’t meant to be metered in bits and bytes, so it’s insane that wireless companies are still making you buy it this way. The rate plan is dead — it’s a fossil from a time when wireless was metered by every call or text.” John Legere 1/5/2017

    Only available in the few areas that will have Ultra Wideband coverage. It's never going to be a viable option for the vast majority of customers looking to replace cable broadband.

    Yep Verizon has stated they hope to have it available to 30 million households within 4 years. There is roughly 130 million households in the US. So at best 23%. if you want to count only area where FiOS is not available since I believe they will not offer this service in those areas, that would make it about 26%

    That ‘more than 60 cities’ better be mine by the end of the year. I read somewhere that Verizon and even T-Mobile were focused more on bigger cities for their high band and AT&T was sort of a mixed bag. Well my city is the second largest in my state. They already have it in the largest and third largest cities here. And we are the capitol of the state so I’m praying they come.

    Even when it does come it won't be everywhere. Look at Chicago which was the first mobile 5G city. While coverage there has expanded since it launched in April 2019 it still only covers a small portion of the city. Maybe what 10% and that's after 15 months

    Don't worry after they launch DSS and lowband 5G they can claim nationwide 5G too like teh other 2.Even though it resembles nothing like the 5G we've been promised for years from all three carriers. But hey your phone now says 5G instead of 4G

    Just my personal opinion , instead of the phone companies fighting or who has the best 5G... i say they combine resources and expand FTTH and 5G.

    Too may folks suffer from horrible cable broadband, espically during this pandemic. FTTH must be expanded .

    Telcos need to win back the broadband marketshare.

    Combine resources bring back the #bellsystem and bell labs !!

    What exactly are these widespread issues with cable broadband that you speak of? I've lived in 5 states in the past 20 years and have had cable broadband from ~7 separate cable companies and I've never had any issues whatsoever.

    Lucky u , mine is down all the time. It's 100° today and guess what there's an outage in my area..

    They buried a brand new line from the pedestal to the house still flaming hot garbage

    Lucky I have LTE unlimited but that doesn't help the other devices in my home.

    My directv video service is more reliable than this awful cable broadband . I miss when I had fiber 0 issue no matter the weather and amazing up load speeds.

    If I had a job where I had to work at home I would be fired.

    I did have AT&T Fiber briefly in another apartment building and that worked really well for me as well. Knock on wood, I've not had any issues to speak of with cable broadband however. Maybe 2-3 brief outages that were resolved quickly over the past decade or so but nothing really worth mentioning.
