“Priced at $50 for people who already have Verizon wireless and $70 for those who don’t, it’s promising speeds of ‘around 300 Mbps’ up to 1 Gbps, with no data caps. Beyond the ‘First On 5G’ marketing push, Verizon is also branding its service as being built on a ‘5G Ultra Wideband Network’ because of its spectrum holdings, fiber connections and small cell base stations,” according to Engadget.
