Verizon has announced that included Washington, D.C. to its 5G network as of July 31, along with Atlanta, Detroit and Indianapolis.
People using the company’s mobile data services will be able to benefit from the fifth generation cellular network technology offered by the company.
Verizon’s 5G Ultra Wideband service is now accessible in a total of nine U.S. cities. Chicago, Denver, Minneapolis, Providence and St. Paul have already been part of the network.
It is provided in and around “public spaces like parks, monuments, museums, college campuses and stadiums,” according to a press release by the mobile carrier.
Public spaces where Verizon customers can connect to the 5G network include The National Mall in Washington, D.C.
With respect to the addition of four more cities, Verizon’s Chief Technology Officer Kyle Malady said:
“Customers in these cities are at the forefront of game-changing technology, with access to download speeds and bandwidth that will power the future of consumer, business and government mobile applications. Similarly, cities that embrace new technology, like 5G Ultra Wideband, have a leg up in competition to attract businesses and create jobs.”
Among the places, where Verizon’s 5G Ultra Wideband service will be initially accessible are:
Foggy Bottom, Dupont Circle, Cardozo / U Street, Adams Morgan, Columbia Heights, Le Droit Park, Georgetown Waterfront, Shaw, NOMA, the Smithsonian, Mt. Vernon Square, Downtown, Navy Yard, the Ronald Reagan National Airport, United States Botanical Gardens, National Gallery of Art, Lafayette Square, The White House, George Washington University and Capital One Arena.
It is noted that the network will be available to business customers and consumers who have “one of five 5G-enabled devices – the LG V50 ThinQ 5G™, the moto z3 and z4 combined with the 5G moto mod, the Samsung Galaxy S10 5G or the Inseego MiFi® M1000 – the most 5G devices available on any 5G network.”
Verizon is promising to expand its 5G service to more than 30 cities in total by the end of this year, including Boston, Charlotte, Cincinnati, Cleveland, Columbus, Dallas, Des Moines, Houston, Kansas City, Little Rock, Memphis, Phoenix, San Diego, and Salt Lake City.
