Verizon Wireless 5G:
Wireless and Wireless Internet
provide Internet access. Fixed Wireless includes an
outdoor antenna that is professionally mounted on or near the exterior
of your home or business to provide a strong signal for better
connectivity, while Wireless Internet uses a small
desktop device that you can install yourself since there is no outdoor
antenna. Wireless Internet is a portable
service, whereas Fixed Wireless is portable within a small
area such as a single building. Fixed
Wireless is currently available in select
(typically rural) areas, while Wireless Internet is available
throughout each network's wireless
footprint. Fixed Wireless provides
potentially higher and more reliable download speeds. Fixed
wireless is expanding
nationally from AT&T.
Wireless will become more common,
some with self-installing simplicity..
Wireless is offering 5G Wireless for a fixed location under the name,
"Home", available in Los
Angeles, Houston, Indianapolis, and Sacramento. They also offer Mobile 5G Wireless
in Minneapolis and Chicago. Their "Home" and Mobile networks are not
compatible with each other, which will change in the future.

AT&T 5G Wireless:
forms of 5G Wireless are available from AT&T in 19 Cities across the US.
AT&T currently offers one 5G device, a Hotspot.
AT&T also currently
offers High-Speed Internet via conventional Fixed Wireless
in certain markets. AT&T labels theirs "5G Evolution" which
is an interim step toward real 5G service, with optimized 4G
LTE that provides higher speeds than previously available.

Coming this year to New York City, Los Angeles, Dallas and Las Vegas.
T-Mobile has successfully tested 5G Wireless at 600 MHz which holds the
promise of widespread 5G coverage.
Sprint now offers fairly large areas of 5G Wireless in
Atlanta, Dallas, Houston and Kansas City. Other cities should
be added this summer. Sprint will
initially offer "Massive MIMO," which is claimed to offer peak 5G
performance and is available to mobile users..
Spire 5G Wireless:
C Spire, the largest and most aggressive company among smaller wireless
carriers, now offers 5G Wireless service in Gulf Port, MS. They also
offer 5G-quality fixed internet access across Mississippi by
deploying fiber to a “hub home.” That home gets free internet service
from the company and also broadcasts a wireless signal to nearby
homes. For nearby
homes that sign up for its service, C Spire installs a dinner
plate-sized antenna receiver on their roof.
If the T-mobile/Sprint merger is approved, not only will their existing
5G Wireless coverage be available to both companies' customers, they
will also both have access to a much broader swath of spectrum for 5G
service than they have individually. There is no
assurance this merger
will occur, or when.
