As expected, about three times faster than the mid-band 5G. CFO Ellis says VZ is getting what they expected, often just short of a gigabit. We're (finally) getting feedback from users, always more reliable than the companies. Several have reported on the web speeds usually just a little less than a gig.
Latency is 10-25 ms, not 1 ms. Verizon & AT&T latency from the cell to the home is testing at 9-13 ms. That's of limited value unless the game or whatever you're accessing is stored locally, unlikely for years. The important latency figure is from you to where you are trying to reach, sometimes across the web. 1 ms works in the lab but I do not know any telco in the world committed to deploying it in the next few years.
Dexter Johnson at IEEE reports a failed installation. Verizon tried, but was blocked by a neighbour's garage.
I'm getting speeds of 900+ mbps downstream (wired), 600+ downstream (wireless), 200+ upstream. A couple things to keep in mind:
They will mount a small, oven-mitt sized antenna on the inside or outside of your house. They literally bolted one on the side of my house.
They run a wire from the antenna into your house (or through your house if the antenna is inside), so make sure there's a good path to run the wire from the antenna to the entry point discreetly.
The distance from your house to the node matters. My closest node is about three blocks away, and my connection is fine.
Installation takes several hours. They will be inside and outside of your home. You will have to sign off before they begin installation. Plan to have someone at home the whole day, just in case.
Technicians were super professional. Managers were on site throughout. They're bringing out the A team.
This is so much faster than my previous AT&T connection, and it's the same price.
