Verizon boss Lowell McAdam has said that 5G services will kick off in LA later this year, but it'll be for fixed services at first, before 5G-capable mobile devices arrive in Q1 2019. Verizon has "locked in" four cities for its initial 5G rollout, with more cities planned in the near future.

AT&T will be launching mobile 5G in over 12 cities at first, naming three of them already while T-Mobile and Sprint won't be flicking on the 5G lights until 2019 at the earliest.
