Verizon Lanches 5G in Denver, Providence
Jun 27, 2019, 10:39 AM by Rich Brome
Verizon's 5G network launches today in Denver, and will launch in Providence on Monday, July 1st. The two cities join Chicago and Minneapolis for a total of four cities where the company offers 5G service. The networks only cover the most central areas of each city. Because Verizon's 5G network only uses mmWave frequency bands, each "tower" only covers a few hundred feet and the signal does not work well indoors. But mmWave can offer higher peak data speeds than is possible with lower (sub-6-GHz) frequency bands. Verizon has promised to launch 5G in "30-plus" cities by the end of 2019. The company offers multiple 5G phones: the Samsung Galaxy S10 5G, LG V50, as well as the 5G Moto Mod for the Moto z3 and z4. Verizon offers its 5G phones to all customers nationwide.
