Verizon launched a nationwide 5G network, which provides coverage to 200 million people across 1,800 cities. Previously the netwo4rkk had 5g in various cities with millimetre wave access. Verizon also announced that it will expand its mmWave network to over 66 cities before the end of the year.
Verizon announced the nationwide 5G network during Apple’s event for the iPhone 12.
The expanded network will increase 5G access to millions of Americans. It will also help Verizon compete with other major networks that also have 5G available for customers in some form. The 5G network will be able to provide faster speeds than LTE, however, it will not be as fast as other types of 5G like mmWave networks.
