Indianapolis will soon be getting 5G residential broadband service, Verizon announced.
The company said Indy will join Houston, Los Angeles and Sacramento in getting 5G capability for residential broadband internet delivery this year. Verizon says it will be the first first wireless company to provide 5G residential broadband service and 5G mobile in the United States, with mobile service available sometime next year when 5G-capable smartphones become available.
“Indianapolis is one of our nation’s leading tech and business hubs, making our community a natural location to launch innovative new technology,” Indianapolis Mayor Joe Hogsett said in a press release. “Verizon’s commitment to collaboration through investments in our city infrastructure and upgrades to venues like Lucas Oil Stadium led naturally to this next step. We expect to continue to build Indianapolis’ global reputation as a center of innovation with the rollout of 5G.”
