Verizon Wireless turned on its ‘5G Ultra Wideband’ network in some parts of four new US cities: Washington DC, Atlanta, Detroit, and Indianapolis. These new 5G cities join Chicago, Denver, Minneapolis, Providence, and St. Paul. Verizon 5G service is available in public spaces like parks, monuments, museums, college campuses, and stadiums. The telecom operator aims to cover 30 markets with 5G mobile technology by YE2019.
Company customers will be able to access the 5G network with five 5G-capable devices.
Another US carrier, AT&T, turned on 5G services earlier this month for certain business customers in limited areas of New York City and Las Vegas. The company is using its 39 GHz millimeter wave spectrum and the service is not offered to general customers. The cellco plans to deliver broad 5G coverage using the sub-6 GHz spectrum “in the coming months.”
