Today at the MWC event in Barcelona Sprint announced that they plan to roll out 5G services in Atlanta, Chicago, Dallas, and Kansas City as soon as May 2019. Sprint went on to say that they plan to offer 5G services in Houston, Los Angeles, New York City, Phoenix, and Washington D.C. before the end of June 2019.
Sprint says they hope to cover 1,000 square miles in nine cities in the first half of 2019. Sprint does warn that a full rollout of 5G across the United States will take years, but the push for 5G is starting in May.
Verizon already has 5G home internet live in a handful of cities with plans to launch in 30 additional cities by the end of 2019. The cost will be $50 a month for Verizon Wireless customers and $70 for non-Verizon Wireless customers. The best part is that there is no data cap for Verizon’s 5G home Internet service. You will also get three months of YouTube TV making the deal even better.
“Verizon’s plans to launch its 5G Ultra Wideband Network in more than 30 U.S. cities in 2019. Verizon 5G Mobility will launch in the first half of 2019, and Verizon 5G Home will expand coverage to more markets in the second half of 2019. Revenues from 5G Mobility and 5G Home will begin to scale next year and are expected to contribute more meaningfully to growth in 2021. The company’s Mobile Edge Computing platform, which will enable real-time enterprise applications, is expected to launch in fourth-quarter 2019,” Verizon said in a statement on their website.
