The Router also features Amazon Alexa Built-in, allowing customers to control smart home devices, hear the news, ask questions and access more than 100,000 skills – hands-free. Tired of waiting on the cable installer? Even the set-up process is fast; you can do Self Setup with 5G Home Internet on your own time with minimal effort.


5G Acceleration & Expansion

Verizon continues to expand 5G home and mobile coverage across the country. This month, customers in parts of Indianapolis and Los Angeles will have access to enhanced 5G Home service, and by the end of 2020, 5G Home Internet will be available in 10 cities nationwide. Recently, Verizon announced additional implementation milestones including San Diego as the 35th 5G Ultra Wideband mobile market, uploads on 5G, a new virtual 5G lab and more ecosystem partners to speed 5G acceleration and development.
