5G is the fifth generation of wireless technology that will have a massive impact on how we live, learn, work and play, paving the way for unprecedented innovations that will reshape the world. But not all 5G is the same. Verizon 5G Ultra Wideband is more than 25x faster than today’s 4G networks in the U.S.1

In addition to its 5G Ultra Wideband network, Verizon recently launched 5G Nationwide, a low-band 5G network. This allows customers with 5G-enabled devices to use the high-frequency millimeter spectrum 5G Ultra Wideband network where it’s available and fall back on the low-frequency Nationwide 5G network where it’s not.

The 5G Ultra Wideband network uses the high-band, ultra-wide millimeter wave spectrum to deliver our best 5G experience available today. Think of 5G Ultra Wideband like an incredibly wide, superfast highway, with millions of trucks traveling inches apart from one another at breakneck speeds. The ultrafast speeds and reduced lag time (latency) can provide smartphones with new capabilities for activities like multi-player gaming on the go, streaming 4K 2 movies and video chatting in HD. And with its massive bandwidth, 5G Ultra Wideband will be able to support many more devices of the future in the Internet of Things.

5G Nationwide, meanwhile, uses a different, low-band spectrum that involves dynamic spectrum sharing (DSS). DSS is a technology that allows 5G service to run simultaneously with 4G LTE on multiple spectrum bands. With DSS, whenever customers move outside Verizon’s high-band Ultra Wideband coverage area, their 5G-enabled devices will remain on 5G technology using the lower bands. By deploying both technologies together, Verizon is able to use its full portfolio of current spectrum resources to serve both 4G and 5G customers, maximizing their customers’ 5G experiences on the Verizon network.

All of our plans include access to our 5G Nationwide network. And, in addition, Play More, Do More, and Get More Unlimited plans include access to 5G Ultra Wideband. And when you have 5G Nationwide combined with 5G Ultra Wideband — with the fastest 5G in the world* — you'll get our absolute best performance.**

** 5G Nationwide available in 1,800+ cities. 5G Nationwide access requires a 5G Nationwide–capable device. 5G Ultra Wideband available only in parts of select cities. 5G Ultra Wideband access requires a 5G--capable device inside the 5G Ultra Wideband coverage area. 5G Ultra Wideband (UW) access included with Get More Unlimited, Do More Unlimited and Play More Unlimited plans; or Start Unlimited plan for $10/mo. Downloads over 5G UW. Depending on location, uploads over 5G UW or 4G LTE; uploads over 4G LTE will not count towards your 4G LTE data allowance.

We said we’d lead on 5G, and we are. Verizon launched the world’s first 5G mobile network with a commercially available 5G-enabled smartphone, the 5G moto mod. Right now, you can find the Verizon 5G Ultra Wideband network in parts of dozens of major cities including Los Angeles, Denver, Phoenix, Dallas, Houston, Chicago, Boston, Washington DC--see map above for full list. In addition, you can browse to see our 5G Nationwide coverage.

Don't see your city? More 5G Ultra Wideband cities are coming soon, and in fact by the end of 2020, over 60 cities in the U.S. will have 5G Ultra Wideband. Come back often to see updates.

Yes, you'll need a 5G-capable phone to access 5G service. If you have a 5G smartphone or a 5G moto mod connected to a compatible Motorola smartphone, you can access the 5G Ultra Wideband network through select Unlimited plans. You can also access the 5G Ultra Wideband network with a 5G Jetpack on the Unlimited plans with the 5G Ultra Wideband Hotspot Data plan. You can also access it with a 5G Jetpack, tablet or laptop on the Unlimited Plus plan.

Verizon 5G Edge is a mobile edge computing platform available for businesses. It was designed to enable developers to build applications for mobile end-users and wireless edge devices with ultralow latency. By integrating AWS cloud services into Verizon’s 5G network, Verizon is bringing the cloud closer to mobile end users and connected devices, which will unlock a wide range of transformative applications. For example, 5G Edge might enable AI, near real-time connectivity and other new technologies to fight fraud, power humanized assistants, speed up loan transactions, shorten settlement cycles, and accelerate market forecasting, buying and selling.
