Verizon Expands 5G Coverage in Both Low-Band and mmWave
Verizon today announced the availability of "Nationwide" low-band 5G in four new areas of the country and faster "Ultra Wideband" mmWave 5G in parts of four new cities. The low-band network (offering wide coverage but speeds closer to 4G) is now available to an additional 24 million customers in central Texas, Tulsa, upstate New York, and the New England area. The "Ultra Wideband" mmWave 5G network — which offers much faster speeds but has coverage limited to specific dense areas of major cities — is now available in parts of Tampa, St. Petersburg, Albuquerque, and Durham. Verizon also announced that it has deployed carrier aggregation (CA) on its mmWave 5G network, enabling double data rates for "peak speeds up to 4 Gbps possible in some locations".
