October 14, 2020 Update


5G Ultra Wideband is now available in 19 new cities. Verizon continues to lead the industry with its 5G Ultra Wideband service - the fastest 5G in the world1 - that was built from the ground up for industrial and commercial use cases. It’s important to remember that not all services are created equal. Verizon’s 5G Ultra Wideband boasts throughputs multiple times faster than 4G and, as the technology matures, it is expected to handle data volumes 100 times larger than today’s capabilities, and ultra-low latencies, which is the time it takes for a signal to make a round trip from point A to point B. Verizon’s use of mmWave spectrum, the backbone of 5G Ultra Wideband, is essential to these revolutionary capabilities.

Customers in 55 cities can now experience ultra-fast wireless speeds, allowing them to download and stream movies and TV shows in seconds, videoconference and collaborate remotely in near real time, and take advantage of new immersive customer experiences never before available wirelessly. By the end of 2020, Verizon plans to launch 5G Ultra Wideband in more than 60 cities. The newest 5G Ultra Wideband cities with access to the fastest 5G in the world include:

Verizon plans to have 5G access in more than 30 cities by the end of this year.  Some of those cities include Boston, Charlotte, Cincinnati, Cleveland, Columbus, Des Moines, Houston, Kansas City, Little Rock, Memphis, San Diego and Salt Lake City. Additional 5G Ultra Wideband cities will be announced later this year.

When customers move outside Verizon’s 5G Ultra Wideband coverage area, the 5G-enabled device transitions to Verizon’s award-winning network, the network more people rely on.
