After teasing the first cities that'll get its 5G home broadband service, Verizon today revealed when it's going to flip its 5G switch. According to Verizon, the peak speeds can reach close to 1 Gbps.

As an added bonus for signing up for Verizon 5G Home, you will be given three months of YouTube TV for free along with your choice of either an Apple TV 4K or a Google Chromecast Ultra - also free.

Starting October 1, some residents of Houston, Indianapolis, Los Angeles, and Sacramento will be able to buy into the new wireless capabilities.

The 5G service will cost existing Verizon subscribers $50 a month, and $70 a month for non-carrier customers. "This monthly charge includes all taxes and fees, and does not require an annual contract".

Now before you start jumping up and down in excitement and start hunting for 5G smartphones, we should caution that this is nota mobile 5G service. It will initially only be available in a few cities and will go live from 1 October 2018. "Verizon will rapidly expand its coverage area once we can install the new standards-compliant equipment from our vendors", the carrier said.

Verizon Wireless has talked a lot about offering 5G connectivity to its customers as soon as this fall.

To compare, the average home internet speeds in the United States as of May measured in at 92.93 Mbps, according to PCMag. It's unclear if those are just download speeds or both up and down.

In Verizon's case, wireless 5G technology is replacing the typical wired home broadband internet service.

Verizon's network limitations have been a hot topic recently, since the Santa Clara County fire departments complained that a device with an unlimited data plan was throttled while they were fighting California's largest-ever wildfire.

AT&T is also planning to launch a 5G home Internet service and has already begun trials.
