Verizon will offer the 5G network throughout the United States to more than 200 million people.

Verizon CEO Hans Vestberg told the press that “We were the first to offer 5G technology, and we continue to continue to improve it. Our job, our passion, is to break the limits of what is possible, to unite the ecosystem and create experiences that consumers and entrepreneurs didn’t know they needed or wanted. “

He added: “From the beginning, our work has focused on building a 5G network that will dramatically change society. With this announcement, we are moving one step closer to the future. “

Verizon is one of the leading companies in the industry thanks to the 5G ultra-broadband service it offers; this, according to experts, is the fastest 5G network in the world.

Verizon’s ultra-broadband technology will have the capacity to handle a volume of data 100 times bigger than the current one.

This will be done through the mmWave spectrum, essential to achieve the plans that the company has set in the short term.

So far, Verizon’s ultra-broadband is available in 19 stadiums and arenas, as well as six airports.

  • Arlington, TX
  • Ann Arbor, MI
  • Anaheim, CA
  • Baltimore, MD
  • Fort Wayne, IN
  • Hartford, CT
  • Jersey City, NJ
  • Las Vegas, NV
  • Louisville, KY
  • Milwaukee, WI
  • Oklahoma City, OK
  • Philadelphia, PA
  • Raleigh, NC
  • Richmond, VA
  • San Francisco, CA
  • Sarasota, FL
  • St. Louis, MO
  • Syracuse, NY
  • Tucson, AZ

The network will be enabled, but will all devices be able to access it?

Verizon has officially launched its 5G network service in the United States, and this launch coincides with the announcement of the new iPhone 12.

This is because the latest models of Apple electronic devices are capable of supporting the sub-6GHZ network; However, devices that already support 5G technology will have to undergo a software update before they can connect to the 5G network.

Verizon spokesperson George Koroneos has confirmed that a software update is about to activate the 5G network on Samsung and LG devices.

According to the XDA Developers portal, andAmong the devices that will be able toport 5G network thanks to this update you will find:

  • LG V60 ThingQ 5G
  • LG Velvet 5G
  • LG Wing
  • Samsung S20 5G
  • Samsung S20 Ultra 5G
  • Samsung S20 Plus 5G
  • Samsung Note 20 5G
  • Samsung Note 20 Ultra 5G
  • Samsung A71 5G
  • Samsung A51 5G

During the launch of the iPhone 12, it was announced that all variants of this device will be capable of supporting the 5G network, including the millimeter wave network in all models marketed in the United States.

If the user has any of these devices, in addition to a Verizon subscription, they will have to download the software update to access the company’s coverage.

On occasions prior to the formal announcement of the Verizon, the company had presented certain disadvantages in terms of coverage; experts say that this was due to Verizon relying on mmWave-type frequencies.

The reason that the Verizon network is only available in strategic locations, and only in select cities in the United States, is because millimeter wave (mmWave) networks involve a more complex manufacturing process, as well as less coverage.

Verizon’s sub-6GHz network will be available in 1,800 cities in the United States; however, it has been reported that the speeds will be much lower than that of the millimeter wave (mmWave) network.

Although so far the 5G network is only available in some cities and on selected devices; however, it is projected that by 2025, this network will be accessible to 50% of all devices manufactured in the world.
