How Does HomeFusion Broadband Work?
An alternative to satellite, DSL and dial-up, the service connects your home to the Internet via Verizon’s fast 4G LTE network.
If you live in a part of the country where your local Internet provider isn’t allowing you to connect to the Internet at fast-enough speeds, HomeFusion Broadband may be right for you. HomeFusion Broadband provides a fast Internet connection via Verizon’s 4G LTE network, the largest in the nation with more than 400 markets covered.
The concept is pretty simple. A professional technician installs a fixed LTE antenna on the outside of your home. The antenna taps into your 4G LTE coverage and broadcasts a wireless Internet signal throughout your residence via a router, just like regular Wi-Fi.
Now you’re rolling along with average download speeds between 5 and 12 Mbps and upload speeds of 2 to 5 Mbps, allowing you to access and share your data faster, or even have the upper hand in an online game. You can connect as many as 20 Wi-Fi-enabled devices and hook up four more to the wired Ethernet connection. Up to five email accounts are included with your service.
There are three monthly plans to choose from: 10 GB for $60, 20 GB for $90 and 30 GB for $120. There are no equipment, installation or activation fees, and new customers receive 50 percent more data allowance for their first two full billing cycles.
If you’ve ever used a 4G LTE device, you already know that its speed is comparable, if not faster, than your home connection. Now Verizon customers who were previously at the mercy of their local Internet service provider can experience that swiftness everywhere 4G LTE service is available.
HomeFusion Broadband has benefits over a landline- or cable-based Internet connection too. When your cable goes down, so does your Internet. But with HomeFusion Broadband, as long as you and the cellular tower have power, you’ll be running strong.
