Panama City, Florida – Verizon’s network is operational across the Panhandle, and efforts are underway to further stabilize and strengthen our wireless network in Panama City, throughout Bay and Gulf Counties, and across the Panhandle.
Verizon’s technology leader Kyle Malady said, “As the community rebuilds, Verizon will be your strong partner. That’s why we’re committing $25 million to build the most technologically advanced wireless network in the area. We will include 5G technology as part of that infrastructure." Panama City becomes one of five announced Verizon 5G cities, joining Los Angeles, Houston, Indianapolis and Sacramento.
Malady said Verizon’s $25 million network technology upgrade would be largely spent in 2019. “Verizon has been a long term partner in this community and this investment is just another example of that commitment. We look forward to working with the area’s public officials, businesses and economic development organizations, educational institutions, first responders and the companies and customers who will benefit.”
