This month, more than 100 million people in 1,700 U.S. cities will have access to speeds up to 10 times faster than 4G LTE1 via Verizon 5G Ultra Wideband network, Verizon revealed today.
Verizon said its 5G Ultra Wideband features download speeds as fast as 1 Gbps and the capacity to support data-heavy actions from multiple devices simultaneously. It said the network allows downloading of huge documents and streaming movies in HD audio and video, playing console quality games and conducting video chats, video conferencing and FaceTime calls with clear sound and video.
“This massive launch will put incredible speeds, reliability and security in the hands of our customers and amplifies our offering of reliable home and business broadband options to more places around the country, well ahead of the commitment we made last year,” said Hans Vestberg, chairman and CEO of Verizon. “As 5G Ultra Wideband becomes available to more and more people and businesses, it will allow our customers to do more amazing things.
“We’ve already proven our success with Fios broadband in the Northeast, and now we will give millions more consumers and business owners around the country a real choice in how they get their internet,” Vestberg said.
