5G continues its national rollout, offering millimeter-wave cellular speeds at higher, faster frequencies than 4G LTE. That's a big deal for our phones and other mobile gadgets that connect over cellular airwaves -- and it could be a game-changer for home networking too. With the potential for near-gigabit speeds over the air that rival the offerings of cable and fiber internet service providers -- plus the added appeal of straightforward, consumer-friendly terms that ditch data caps, equipment fees and Webtipsnews the like -- 5G is shaping up as one of the most exciting things to happen in residential internet in years.

All of that depends on whether 5G home internet service is even an option at your address. 5G signals aren't available everywhere, but the two providers doing the most to expand the technology's availability for home internet use are Verizon and T-Mobile. (Note: For now, AT&T is sticking with fiber and DSL to bring homes online.) Both providers offer dedicated 5G home internet plans that promise fast speeds and simple terms at an affordable rate, and in some areas, you might even find that your home is serviceable by each of them, as CNET's own Eli Blumenthal recently discovered in his quest to replace his cable provider.

Time will tell how much 5G stands to disrupt the ISP category. Let's look at how Verizon 5G Home and T-Mobile Home Internet match up.
