At a presentation for investors today, Verizon announced an accelerated timeline for deploying mid-band (C-band) 5G across the US. The company now plans for its mid-band 5G network to cover 175 million people by the end of 2022, a full year earlier than the company previously planned to reach that milestone. The company has already met its promise to cover 100 million in early 2022, and continues to aim for over 250 million by the end of 2024. Verizon claims its customers are seeing peak download speeds of almost 1 Gbps over C-band, and over 1 Gbps using carrier aggregation of C-band with other bands. The company also continues to expand its mmWave 5G network in dense urban areas, with mid-band providing indoor and suburban coverage for high-speed 5G. The company currently has 33,000 mmWave sites online. In areas covered by mmWave, Verizon says about 10% of its wireless customers are using it.
