Verizon has added 14,000 new mmWave 5G cell sites this year, nearly double the number the company deployed in the previous two years combined. mmWave 5G provides very fast 5G service but limited coverage per cell site. That makes the additional sites crucial to the availability of mmWave service, although it will still remain exclusive to high-density areas and venues for the foreseeable future. Verizon and AT&T will soon launch 5G in C-Band (mid-band) frequencies, which offer a better balance of data speed and coverage. Verizon announced that it plans to cover 100 million people with the new mid-band 5G service by March 2022. Verizon will market both mmWave and mid-band as "5G Ultra Wideband".
