Why it is important: talk about closing it. Verizon unveiled its 5 G ultra-widebande service in 3 new cities on Monday just days before its self-imposed end-of-year deadline. It increases the number of cities to be deployed past 30.
Verizon’s 5 G coverage, which now includes a total of 31, was the latest cities in Cleveland and Columbus, Ohio and Hampton Roads, Virginia. The original goal of Verizon was to enter 30 cities with 5 G capability by the end of 2019. Speak about the end.
In earlier this month, Verizon flipped the switch in Los Angeles before joining a whole host of other mixed cities last week, including Charlotte and Greensboro, North Carolina; Michigan; Grand Rapids; Miami, Florida; Utah, Salt Lake City, and Washington.
In Columbus, users can access the 5G service via various facilities on the Ohio State University campus and even in the John Glenn Columbus International Airport’s main ticketing area. Verizon claims that it is the first American airport with the live 5 G ultra wideband coverage available on the market.
Those in the region of Hampton Roads will practice Five-G at the Virginia Beach Hilltop Shopping Center, Scope Coliseum and elsewhere in parts of downtown Norfolk, including Boardwalk.
Cleveland users can access 5 G in the downtown and surrounding areas such as the Progressive Field and the Science Center of the Great Lakes. We are advised that the lower seating zone in the NFL stadium is now also whitewashed in 5G.
You will need one from seven 5G-enabled devices if you are in one of these areas and want to check the fast network for yourself. Parties interested in Verizon will find out more about the stable compatible devices on their website.
