Is Verizon 5G Home Internet a big deal?

Episode 1523 (1:43:45)

Greg from Chino, CA
Cell tower

Greg wants to know if 5G Home Internet is a game changer. Rich says that Verizon is testing 5G Home Internet in five cities around the country. 300/1000 down for $50. Sounds good, but that's ideal bandwidth. Is it a game changer? Well, only if it's available where you live. And 5G requires a lot more antennas, every few hundred feet. So it'll be awhile before it's widespread and Rich doesn't see it happening any time soon. If it's available, sign up. If you already have service and don't want to switch, use it as leverage to get a better deal. And that could be the best thing about it.
