New 5G Home and 5G Business cities

Loyal Up To Speed fans will remember that just last week we announced two new 5G Home and 5G Business cities joining the Verizon family. Today we’re already back with three more, which is a testament to the hard work of our Network team. Customers in parts of Athens, Georgia, Knoxville, Tennessee, and Tacoma, Washington can now get 5G Home and 5G Business. Both are ideal for anyone who wants super-fast connectivity to stream, game or work flexibly.

Look who’s streaming tonight’s The Game Awards.

We’ve got something special for gaming fans tonight as Verizon and Twitch team up to present the first ever live co-stream from The Game Awards. FaZe Clan pro Nate Hill and WNBA Champion and Team Liquid Diversity Ambassador Aerial Powers will host the co-stream. This innovative partnership between Verizon and Twitch will celebrate how Verizon 5G changes streaming for all gamers and influencers and provides fans with a fun and interactive way to experience the ceremony.

Tune in on Twitch this evening December 9, at 8 PM ET/ 5 PM PT or go directly to
