Current Verizon customers will have to pay $50 a month while it will cost non-customers $70 a month.

After tooting its own horn about its leadership in 5G infrastructure earlier today, Verizon announced this afternoon that it will launch the country's first 5G broadband internet service on October 1. Those prices included taxes and fees, plus there are no annual contracts for 5G Home.

The 5G service makes use of Verizon's "ultra wideband" network utilising the company's small cells, fibre backbone, and millimetre-wave (mmWave) spectrum.

Also, as we couldn't find a shot of the back of the phone, it's possible that the phone in the picture is an Oppo R17 series unit. Apart from improvements in camera and software under the hood, OnePlus 6T is expected to come with better battery life as well.

"5G is the technology of the future, and our partnership with Verizon allows for emerging startups to leverage it as they build the next generation of products that will shape our world", says CEO of Alley, Jason Saltzman.

If you sign-up, not only do you get the first three months free, but you get free YouTube TV for three months too and a free Apple TV 4K or Google Chromecast Ultra. Additionally, Verizon will not be putting any data cap on the plan.

This isn't a true 5G mobile service for your phone, but a new way to fill your house or apartment with high-speed internet access.

Verizon spokesman John O'Malley said typical 5G network speeds average 300 megabits per second, which Verizon's website says is fast enough to download an iTunes update in 7 seconds, whereas 4G LTE speeds range between 5 to 12 megabits per second.
