Beginning July 30, Verizon will expand home Internet access to customers outside the Fios and 5G Home footprints, expanding home connectivity options to rural areas.

Why LTE Home Internet?

With LTE Home Internet, customers can work from home, homeschool their kids, or binge-watch their favorite shows in HD using the nation’s most awarded network. They’ll get unlimited data, and experience download speeds of 25 Mbps with peak Internet speeds of 50 Mbps.3 With easy self-setup, customers can install the router on their own time. No tech or tools are needed. If desired, eligible customers will have access to 30 days of free setup support through Verizon’s Smart Setup program.

“Our 4G LTE network keeps our customers connected when and where it matters most,” said Frank Boulben, Senior Vice President of Consumer Marketing and Products at Verizon. “With LTE Home Internet, our most awarded 4G LTE network will provide Internet connectivity for customers in more rural parts of America who may not have access to broadband Internet service - a critical need, especially now, when so many are counting on reliable connectivity for remote work and educational needs.”

The Details.

LTE Home Internet is $40 a month for Verizon wireless customers and $60 a month for non-Verizon wireless customers. The easy-to install LTE Home router is $10 a month with a device payment plan.4 To find out if LTE Home Internet is available in your area, visit www.verizon.com/home/lte-home-internet.
