With 1 Gbps speeds, Verizon’s 5G fixed wireless service will leapfrog the competition

And speeds appear to matter. Parks Associates reported way back in 2015 that fully one quarter of Americans who switched to a new ISP "did so in order to obtain a faster service at a comparable price."

And that’s why Verizon’s 1 Gpbs pledge for fixed wireless is so important. The 1 Gbps speed is rapidly becoming the de facto residential broadband gold standard, and Verizon is promising that it can reach that benchmark wirelessly. You have to admit that’s pretty impressive; Google Fiber launched in 2011 and here we are just seven years later with a completely wireless alternative to last-mile fiber.

From the article "With 1 Gbps speeds, Verizon’s 5G fixed wireless service will leapfrog the competition" by Mike Dano.
