Verizon’s 5G network will face perhaps its largest test yet when it launches in parts of New York City on September 26th. Today the Verizon announced that 5G service will reach areas of uptown, midtown, and downtown Manhattan, and also select parts of Brooklyn, the Bronx, and Queens.
Now with New York City included, Verizon will have unleashed 5G service to 11 cities. The company aims to reach over 30 cities by the end of this year. Verizon explains during a press release today “Our goal is to provide 5G network coverage to more than 50 percent of the US by the end of 2020,”
