Verizon is beginning to broaden 5G service availability, planned to be the backbone of the 21st century that will shape the future. In Akron, OH and Nashville, TN, Verizon is pushing 5G forward by deploying a blazing-fast 5G Ultra Wideband service built through mmWave spectrum.
Ultra-fast wireless speeds can now be experienced by users in 57 cities, attaining up to 4 Gbps in some locations under ideal conditions, allowing them to download and stream movies and TV shows in seconds, video conferencing and collaborating remotely in almost real time, and taking advantage of new interactive wireless user experiences that have never been available before. Verizon is planning to launch 5G Ultra Wideband in 60 cities by the end of 2020.
With its 5G Ultra Wideband service – the world’s fastest 5G – which was built from the ground up for industrial and commercial use cases, Verizon continues to be a market leader. The 5G Ultra Wideband from Verizon offers throughputs way faster than 4G and as the technology improves, data volumes 100 times greater than today’s capacities and ultra-low latencies are expected to be handled, which is the time taken for a signal to make the round trip from point A to point B. For these groundbreaking capabilities, Verizon’s use of mmWave spectrum, the backbone of 5G Ultra Wideband, is extremely important. Customers in parts of Akron and Nashville now have 5G Ultra Wideband available.
Nashville and Akron customers have very access to Verizon’s 5G Nationwide network which uses a high tech called Dynamic Spectrum Sharing (DSS) to operate on lower spectrum bands than 5G Ultra Wideband. With Verizon’s 5G Nationwide service, their 5G-enabled devices will remain on 5G technology utilising lower bands of spectrum when customers move outside Verizon’s 5G Ultra Wideband coverage area. This new technology maximises the customer experience on the Verizon network by enabling clients to use the full portfolio of current available spectrum from Verizon to serve all customers. In a number of ways, customers can use the Verizon network, from virtual learning to real-time gaming, which requires the ability to allocate real-time spectrum resources.
