Verizon 5G service now available in 31 cities nationwide

With the launch of 5G service in Cleveland and Columbus, Ohio yesterday, Verizon has surpassed their goal of bringing 5G to 30 cities in 2019. Verizon 5G is now available in parts of 31 cities around the country, as well as 15 NFL stadiums. The full list of cities as well as specific coverage maps can be found on Verizon’s site.

To utilize 5G, Verizon subscribers need a 5G-capable phone like the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Plus 5G as well as an unlimited data plan. Verizon’s 5G coverage is not widespread and is limited to only parts of the cities, so users in 5G cities should check coverage maps to see where they’ll actually be able to use the new network. However, while coverage is more limited than AT&T’s or T-Mobile’s respective 5G networks, Verizon’s 5G network is considerably faster.
