Verizon has expanded its 5G home internet service to four additional cities bringing the total available markets to 12.

Verizon originally launched its 5G home internet service two years ago to Houston, Indianapolis, Los Angeles and Sacramento. The telecom then expanded its home internet service to additional cities in the second half of 2019.

Now, a total of 12 markets have 5G home internet in select parts of the city. The home internet service comes as Verizon recently expanded its millimeter wave (mmWave) technology to 19 additional U.S. cities, 19 stadiums and six airports.

The cities with 5G home internet include: Atlanta; Chicago; Dallas; Denver; Detroit; Houston; Indianapolis; Los Angeles; Minneapolis; Sacramento; San Jose; and St. Paul.

Verizon said 5G home internet can deliver peak download speeds of up to 1 Gbps depending on location, with typical download speeds of 300 Mbps. The server runs $50 per month for Verizon customers and $70 per month for non-Verizon customers.

Verizon offers self-installation of the equipment with augmented reality to help consumers get walked through the process.
