If you live in Houston, Indianapolis, Los Angeles, or Sacramento, you may be able to try Verizon's "5G" home internet service for free.

United States of America cities of Houston, Indianapolis, Los Angeles and Sacramento and California will have the Verizon 5G network within the threshold of their home as promised by the telecom firm.

How much will it cost? Current Verizon customers will pay $50 a month for the service, while new customers will pay $70 a month, with no additional hardware costs. Verizon promises speeds of almost 1 gigabit, and you can order service starting this Thursday (September 13) in select markets.

Those interested in signing up for the service can do it starting tomorrow, at 8 AM ET.

Verizon 5G Home subscribers also get first dibs on purchasing new 5G mobile devices when they hit the market.

5G is the successor technology to today's 4G wireless, promising faster data transmission and lower latency. Some people suggested that a shift to home internet on a wireless basis would see the service providers take the opportunity to add in data caps to their home broadband, but it appears that Verizon is staying away from that at the moment.

The package includes a free router, free installation, and free upgrades, similar to Verizon's existing home broadband service.

Wireless internet speed in Sacramento is about to get a whole lot faster.

"As a result of this initiative and ongoing collaboration, we will rapidly deliver the promise of 5G to our customers".
