People can now have Big Red 4G LTE delivered to their house via a small antenna attached to the home which transmits signal to a broadband router. This is awesome for those who have limited or no broadband connections where they are living. This device is called HomeFusion Broadband. The antenna is a cylinder shaped, professionally installed device that can work with up to 4 wired devices and 20 wireless devices.

According to the article
In real-world, fully loaded network environments, Verizon 4G LTE customers, including HomeFusion Broadband customers, should experience average data rates of 5 to 12 megabits per second (Mbps) on the downlink and 2 to 5 Mbps on the uplink.
You will have a tiered data plan though. Prices are as follows:
- $60 monthly access for 10 GB of data
- $90 monthly access for 20 GB
- $120 monthly access for 30 GB ($10 per GB after allowance)
There is a one time $200 equipment fee and install is free. Customers get 50% more data allowance for the first two full billing cycles of service. HomeFusion Broadband has been available in six markets since March, and beginning Thursday, it can be purchased in Verizon Wireless Communications Stores.
