Verizon Adds LA to Short List of 5G Launch Cities
Verizon Wireless CEO Lowell McAdam today indicated that Los Angeles will be one of the carrier's first 5G markets, and that it will launch during the fourth quarter of the year. 5G is "a lot closer than people think," said McAdam. Los Angeles will join Sacramento and Boston on Verizon's short list of initial 5G markets. "This has been a three-year journey for us," said McAdam. "I have never seen a technology that is as disruptive and has as much benefit to consumers as 5G. We’re charging ahead." Verizon is testing a number of different technologies for its forthcoming 5G network, including millimeter wave. Verizon and its carrier competitors are all racing to be first to deploy 5G, with AT&T and T-Mobile also targeting late 2018 launches.
