The phrase “cutting the cord” was made popular just about a decade ago, denoting the transition from cable TV to streaming. It’s a way to keep your entertainment setup clean, gain access to much more content, and provide relief to your monthly bills.
Thanks to ever-improving technological advancements, this cordless experience is also becoming a reality for your Wi-Fi too. Verizon is offering cord cutters a new internet solution for cable reduction at an affordable price with 5G Home.
Enjoy the Best of 5G with No Strings Attached
The service turns your residence into a cell tower of its own, linking your devices to Verizon’s ultrafast and reliable 5G Ultra Wideband network. You will receive an Alexa-enabled 5G Home Router that acts as a Wi-Fi hub and command center for your humble abode. The cableless setup process is very simple and can be done completely on your own. Typical download speeds are 300 Mbps and can range up to 1 Gbps depending on your location. There are no annual contracts and no data caps.
The 5G Home Internet package is available for just $70 a month with Auto Pay. But if you have a new or existing monthly Verizon mobile plan of $30 or more, you can knock off another $20 and bring this down to a very affordable $50 a month with Auto Pay. The all-inclusive subscription price of 5G Home covers equipment, taxes, and other fees so you never have to worry about any surprises on your internet bill. Since this is a new type of service to hit the market, Verizon will actually let you try 5G Home free for the first three months to test the waters.
The Early Seal Gets the Deals
For a limited time, Verizon is offering numerous incentives for early adopters of their 5G Home Internet service. Here are all the deals you can take advantage of when you switch to the network.
Cover Early Termination Fees Up to $500
Not all ISPs are as flexible as Verizon. If you are bound to a contract with your current internet provider, you may incur an early termination fee (ETF) for breaking it. To help with that transition, Verizon will cover up to $500 of this cost from within the past four months. You can utilize this benefit by submitting documentation of the ETF within 90 days of installation to receive a bill credit in the amount of the fee.
