Tired of waiting on the cable installer? Even the set-up process is fast; you can do Self Setup with 5G Home Internet on your own time with minimal effort.

For all your Entertainment Needs

Verizon is teaming up with the best content providers in the industry to give you access and exclusive offers for the content and entertainment you want most. Customers will enjoy YouTube TV for one month, Disney+ for one year and gaming on Google Stadia for three months, all at no additional cost.4 Stadia is the perfect way to game without relying on costly hardware, and it plays smoothly with a 5G Home Internet connection.

Customers who sign up for 5G Home Internet can also snag a free Stream TV device, which delivers access to an extensive library of OTT channels, apps and entertainment, including Netflix and Amazon Prime.
