Today, Verizon has followed up on its promise to expand its 5G Ultra Wideband service to four more U.S cities - Washington DC, Atlanta, Detroit, and Indianapolis. Earlier this year, Verizon already launched its 5G mobility services in areas of Chicago, Denver, Minneapolis, Providence and St. Paul.
In order to take advantage of Verizon’s 5G Ultra Wideband network, customers must purchase one of five 5G-enabled smartphones, including the LG V50 ThinQ 5G™, the moto z3 and z4 combined with the 5G moto mod, the Samsung Galaxy S10 5G or the Inseego MiFi® M1000.
“Verizon continues its steady expansion of 5G Ultra Wideband service and is excited to bring the 5G future to Atlanta, Detroit, Indianapolis and Washington, DC,” said Kyle Malady, Verizon’s chief technology officer. “Customers in these cities are at the forefront of game-changing technology, with access to download speeds and bandwidth that will power the future of consumer, business and government mobile applications. Similarly, cities that embrace new technology, like 5G Ultra Wideband, have a leg up in competition to attract businesses and create jobs.”
Verizon customers will be able to access the 5G network in most public spaces within participating cities, including public parks, college campuses, landmarks, and sports stadiums. The carrier has announced plans to launch its 5G Ultra Wideband network in Boston, Charlotte, Cincinnati, Cleveland, Columbus, Dallas, Des Moines, Houston, Kansas City, Little Rock, Memphis, Phoenix, San Diego, and Salt Lake City, with more to come.
