Verizon launched their 5G service in three new cities today, bringing their total number of cities with 5G to eighteen. Boston, Houston, and Sioux Falls are the latest markets to be lit up with Verizon 5G.
“We are building our 5G Ultra Wideband network to support the type of transformative breakthroughs people imagine when they think of next-generation connectivity,” said Kyle Malady, Verizon’s chief technology officer, in a press release today.
Verizon’s 5G Ultra Wideband service can be utilized in limited areas of the three new cities. In Boston, users will find 5G in the Fenway area as well as around Northeastern University. Houston users will find 5G in East Downtown, Uptown, Greenway Plaza, the Museum District and Rice Village, and around landmarks like The Galleria Mall, NRG Stadium, BBVA Compass Stadium and Rice University Stadium. In Sioux Falls, Verizon 5G subscribers will find the service in the downtown area around landmarks like Levitt at the Falls, the Orpheum Theatre, Washington Pavilion, the State Theatre, and the US Federal Courthouse.
Verizon plans to launch 5G in 30 cities around the country by the end of 2019.
