Verizon today announced expansions of their 5G service in several big cities. Beginning January 14, customers in parts of Arlington, TX; Miami, FL; Anaheim, CA; San Francisco, CA and St. Louis, MO can sign up for Verizon’s 5G Home Internet, with Phoenix, AZ to follow on January 28. Additionally, later this month, Verizon’s 5G Ultra Wideband service will become available in parts of Colorado Springs, CO; Columbia, SC and Knoxville, TN.
“We ended 2020 with 2,700 cities with Nationwide 5G service serving 230 million people, 61 cities with Ultra Wideband service, and 12 cities with access to our 5G Home service; and we’re not slowing down,” said Kyle Malady, Chief Technology Officer for Verizon. “We’re rolling out new services to more customers continuing the digital transformation Verizon has been driving.”
Verizon 5G Home Internet requires equipment specific to that service, while the 5G Ultra Wideband service will work on any of the 28 5G-capable phones and devices offered by Verizon.
