Verizon will launch its 5G residential wireless network in 2018 beginning with Sacramento, CA

Verizon plans to launch its 5G residential wireless broadband service in 2018 beginning with the city of Sacramento, CA. This news was made official in a blog post yesterday on the carrier’s website. Here’s what you should expect.

5G is on the way, but we’ve known this for some time. Verizon appears to be near the front of competition in its plans to roll out 5G wireless service to regular consumers, and now we have an availability estimate, which has been set for the second half of 2018. Verizon announced that it will begin the implementation process soon that is to proceed for many years to come. The roll out will begin in the city of Sacramento, CA, with up to 4 additional cities getting service by the conclusion of next year. Which US cities these will be is anybody’s guess right now. Perhaps some of these.

Verizon has been testing its 5G service for many months now, and so have competitors such as AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile. 5G is going to consist of a major movement when lots of people will be affected. We’ll keep you posted as we continue to learn more.
