Verizon said it will also give a 10 year price lock for new customers, no long-term contract required.

“As 5G Business Internet scales into new cities, businesses of all sizes can gain access to the superfast speeds, low latency and next-gen applications enabled by 5G Ultra Wideband, with no throttling or data limits,” said Tami Erwin, CEO of Verizon Business. “We’ll continue to expand the 5G Business Internet footprint and bring the competitive pricing, capability, and flexibility of our full suite of products and services to more and more businesses all over the country.”
The service launched on April 15th in parts of Anaheim, Atlanta, Cincinnati, Cleveland, Dallas, Denver, Detroit, Indianapolis, Kansas City (Missouri), Las Vegas, Miami, Minneapolis, Phoenix, Sacramento, Salt Lake City, San Diego, San Francisco, San Jose, St Louis, and St. Paul.

Additional information about this offer and 5G Business Internet pricing, availability, service and more is available here. In addition, where 5G Business Internet is not yet available, Verizon offers LTE Business Internet to keep Verizon customers covered.
The launch comes at a time when business decision-makers are coming face to face with the transformational potential of 5G. According to a recent Verizon Business survey conducted in partnership with Morning Consult, seven in 10 decision-makers (69%) believe 5G will help their company overcome the negative impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, nearly half (48%) said their companies have already provided or are planning to provide a 5G-capable smartphone or device to employees within the next six months, and approximately eight in 10 agree that 5G will create new opportunities for their company (80%), their industry (79%), and their role (79%).
One thought on “Verizon makes 5G Business Internet (FWA) available in 24 U.S. cities”
I now believe that the distinguishing 5G use case – Fixed Wireless Access (FWA) using mmWave spectrum- is NOT an official ITU IMT 2020 use case. All the high speed wireless ISPs use mmWave for line of sight point-to-point transmission.
The reason for this is that the other three official use cases ((Enhanced Mobile Broadband, Ultra High Reliability/Low Latency, Massive Machine to Machine) are either: only marginally better than 4G-LTE (eMBB), not realizable yet (URLLC), or not needed (mM2M).
