Verizon has finally provided some details about its 5G launch. The company is planning to deploy the next-gen wireless technology in yet to be listed 30 cities before the end of this year. When the carrier was detailing what it will do, it did not mention the cities and how thoroughly the 5G would be deployed throughout those cities.
Verizon did not also mention exactly when it would begin the launch but did say each launch would include deployment of superfast millimeter wave radios.
During a meeting with investors, the CEO of Verizon, Hans Vestberg says, “It’s just gonna be a totally different experience in speed and throughput than you’ve ever seen before.” The carrier spokesperson confirmed that the company is yet to identify the cities the service will launch in.
Verizon also confirmed that this 5G would be standards-based, not the off-brand 5G it used for its wireless home internet service.
However, we are still waiting for more details from the carrier company. The company promised to launch 5G early this year but has not given us any real specifics. By this time, Verizon supposed to be giving us a lot of details concerning the launch because it is the exclusive partner of Samsung Galaxy S10 5G.
Since Samsung Galaxy S10 is supposed to go on sale in April, it means Verizon has only a few months to get parts of its 5G network working.
Vestberg says, “ it’s not too far away.” “I want it tomorrow, but it is not going to be tomorrow.”
AT&T already has 5G live in 12 cities, but no one can use it yet. T-Mobile has also promised it will launch 5G in 30 cities. None of these carriers have launched a 5G phone network yet, but we expect them to start rolling it out in the next few months.
