Get ready for 5G.

Verizon and the world’s leading technology companies are working to make 5G a reality. Field tests are underway with Verizon and its 5G Technology Forum partners that are innovating and driving the 5G ecosystem.

We’re making 5G a reality for our customers.

5G will open up a huge new set of products and mobile trends for our customers. A few of the benefits are high-speed data – connection speeds that are 30 to 50 times faster than 4G – responsiveness and unparalleled video quality. We’re working with our 5G Technology Forum partners to accelerate 5G for our customers. We believe that 5G will be the foundation for creating more internet-connected devices, making cities smarter, energy grids more efficient, and transportation safer.

Get faster peak data speeds with LTE Advanced.

LTE Advanced technology brings 50 percent faster peak wireless data speeds to more than 288 million people in 461 cities from coast to coast. Verizon LTE Advanced uses software that combines multiple channels to speed mobile data over the network more quickly than ever before.
