Verizon Unveils Plan to Establish 5G Mobile Network in 30 American Cities

New England Council member Verizon has announced a plan to provide 5G mobile service in more than 30 American cities by the end of 2019. This next generation of cellular technology will enable consumers to download data at speeds 10 to 40 times faster than current speeds.

Verizon already offers 5G as a home Internet service in areas of four cities. The coverage that Verizon plans to offer by the end of the year will be mobile 5G, which will not only speed up network traffic, but will also allow a vast collection of new services, such as communications for cars and virtual reality on mobile devices. The mobile network will be compatible with standard 5G hardware.

Hans Vestberg, CEO of Verizon, explained, “This is our commitment to be on the leading edge of technology to provide customers with the best network experiences in the world, to deliver growth in revenue and profitability, to expand our 5G leadership, to sustain value to shareholders, and to enable services that benefit society and make the world a better place.”

The Council applauds Verizon’s efforts to promote the next generation of cellular technology and for increasing access to this high speed network.
