On today’s edition of Up To Speed, host Raquel Wilson was joined by our Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Hans Vestberg, who shared some important business updates.

Hans shared that yesterday, he met with our investors and discussed our strategy and path forward. They were especially interested in an update on our network and our fixed wireless access. He mentioned that he stressed how our work will continue to be very focused on segmentation, addressing the different segments in the right way with the right proposition for our customers. He was also glad that investors were able to see the great news announced yesterday regarding our 5G Ultra Wideband expansion. We are now proud to be covering more than 175 million people with our ultra fast, ultra reliable 5G Ultra Wideband service and will offer nationwide 5G Ultra Wideband in the first quarter of 2023.

He also spoke about yesterday’s announcement that Manon Brouillette had stepped down as CEO of Verizon Consumer Group – and how investors were also inquisitive about the decision. Hans stressed that he is committed to accelerating our transformation by assuming direct responsibility for running Verizon Consumer Group and that our goal is to be the leader in customer satisfaction, first to leadership in 5G and provide a flawless experience to all of our customer segments.

Hans reminded us that we’re reaching the end of the quarter and encouraged us all to keep the momentum going to finish the year strong.
