Want 4G broadband in the home? Verizon Wireless has it, now offering LTE-powered HomeFusion Broadband to households in areas with limited broadband options.
The 4G LTE network delivered to an antenna transmits the signal to a broadband router inside the home; the cylinder-shaped antenna is installed by a Verizon tech, and it includes multiple internal antennae that allows the device to pick up Verizon’s LTE signal. The router can connect as many as four wired and at least 20 wireless devices inside the home using Wi-Fi.
According to the carrier, all of its LTE customers, including HomeFusion Broadband subscribers, should be able to achieve average data rates of between 5 Mbps and 12 Mbps on the downlink and between 2 Mbps and 5 Mbps on the uplink. Customers can choose several usage-based HomeFusion Broadband plans, beginning at $59.99 monthly access for 10 GB of data. There is a one-time equipment fee of $199.99, but installation is free.
