The FCC Approves Samsung’s New 5G Home Router




, ,

This week the FCC approved Samsung’s 5G home router in time for Verizon’s 5G launch later this year. Earlier this year Samsung and Verizon announced a collaboration to offer an end to end 5G solution—from the tower to indoor routers.

This is a major step closer to the official Verizon 5G service launch. Earlier this year Verizon announced that by the end of 2018 they plan to have three to five markets.

Recently Verizon announced the first market to get 5G home internet in the second half of 2018: Sacramento, California. Verizon said four other markets will also get 5G home internet in 2018 but did not disclose which markets. Verizon did say that by the end of 2018 30 million US households will have access to 5G home internet.

The promise of 5G home internet is to bring fiber internet speeds without the cost of running fiber to each house. With 5G you will be able to get 5G internet wirelessly to your home, which is a dream many cord cutters have had for years.

The hope is to cut the time it takes to wire a city with fiber internet from years to months. Verizon has been at the core of this push to see 5G rollout starting this year. Now we get new details about Verizon’s new 5G network.
