If you live in an area with limited broadband connection, then Verizon Wireless wants to connect your home to its 4G LTE network using its HomeFusion Broadband service.  For a one-time equipment fee of $199 and a monthly data charge, your home can be powered by 4G LTE as opposed to broadband Internet service.

An antenna will be installed on the roof of your house and it will capture the 4G LTE signal, which can be redistributed to four wired devices and up to twenty devices through WiFi.  Overall, the redistribution of 4G LTE to Internet connected devices sounds impressive, but remember, Verizon is going to cap your data depending on what plan you sign up for.

For example, 10GB of monthly 4G LTE data access costs $59.99 and it likely goes up from there.  Verizon touts its 4G LTE network can access download speeds of 5 to 12 Mbps and 2 to 5 Mbps upload speed.
