This is all apart of a larger effort by Charter to expand their footprint into rural areas that are currently under-serviced. This 5G test will also bring new competition to some major cities which to this day are still limited to two or maybe three internet options.
Here are the markets Charter is testing 5G in:
- Orlando, Florida
- Reno, Nevada
- Clarksville, Tennessee
- Columbus, Ohio
- Bakersfield, California
- Grand Rapids, Michigan
Dish, AT&T, Verizon, T-Mobile, Sprint, and others have all announced plans to roll out 5G home Internet. Dish and others have said that by the end of 2020 they will have half of the United States covered with 5G home Internet.
Charter is The hoping to cut the time it takes to wire a city with fiber Internet from years to months. Verizon has been at the core of this push to see 5G rollout starting this year. Now we get new details about Verizon’s new 5G network.
