After years of talk, 5G connectivity is finally making its way to consumers at a steady pace. One of the first efforts comes from Verizon with its new 5G Home broadband service.

After signing up for Verizon 5G Home, you'll get a modem/router for your home that's able to pull in Verizon's 5G network to power all of the devices. In other words, it essentially replaces your home Wi-Fi network. Speeds should average around 300Mbps, but Verizon notes that they can reach up to a whopping 1Gbps.

Your first three months of the service are free, and following that, Verizon wireless customers will pay $50/month while everyone else pays $70/month. In addition to that, Verizon's offering everyone three free months of YouTube TV and your choice of an Apple TV 4K or Chromecast Ultra.

There aren't any contracts to sign, and for this first batch of customers, Verizon's offering free hardware upgrades for your first year.

Sign-ups for Verizon's 5G Home opened in mid-September, and as of October 1, the service is officially live.
