Verizon Wireless today provided a snapshot of its progress in testing 5G wireless technology. The company has performed trials both in the lab and real-world environments, including residential and commercial areas, with partners Ericsson, Intel, Nokia, Samsung, and Qualcomm. Verizon's 5G Technology Forum is examining millimeter and centimeter wave spectrum, beamforming, beam tracking, massive MIMO, wideband spectrum, and various antenna designs to help determine which prove best. So far, its testing delivers multi-gigabit speeds and single-millisecond latency. Verizon and its parters are testing various technologies in several spectrum, bands, including those proposed by the FCC as ideal for 5G. The International Telecommunications Union has not yet defined what the 5G standard will be. Companies such as Verizon are hoping their own tests are able to eventually contribute to the standard.

Nothing said

So basically they said nothing other than "hey guys we're name dropping technology forms so you feel like we are doing something and we can feel further advanced than we need to be, you know, so we can feel good about ourselves .."
TMO also recently claimed it was working on "5G" technology. The same carrier that jumped ahead of the definition of 4G. Perhaps VZW is saying "We are too". Without a true definition from the ITU, the claim is most likely to keep shareholders in seats...
