On today’s Up To Speed, host Raquel Wilson shared big news: By June 10, we’ll have 5G Home Internet in seven more cities, bringing our total to 40 across the United States.

Having fast and reliable internet service has never been more important. In fact, a study from Morning Consult found that homeowners want a reliable internet connection when looking for a new home.

As our V Teamers shared in the accompanying video, 5G Home Internet launches today in Columbus, OH, and Greensboro and Raleigh, NC. On June 10, 5G Home launches in Des Moines, IA, New Orleans, Seattle, and Tucson, AZ.
