VICTOR VALLEY, CA - Verizon has recently made major upgrades to the network serving customers in Victor Valley, CA. These upgrades are part of a multi-year redesign of its network architecture to stay ahead of exponential data usage increases, upgrade the technology in the network, and to pave the way for personalized customer experiences. Network upgrades in Victor Valley include deploying new cell sites to extend coverage and capacity in local communities. They also include adding more capacity on fiber optic cables to move more data through the network and adding bandwidth to the cellular network to accommodate new services like wireless internet service for homes and businesses. Specifics on the upgrades include:

  • Engineers have deployed 5G Ultra Wideband service using its C-band spectrum designed for high capacity and wide coverage. 5G Ultra Wideband service is now available along I-15/Ranchero Road, at the Victor Valley Medical Center and at Victor Valley High School.

  • Victor Valley’s exceptional 5G coverage uses a combination of mmWave spectrum and Verizon’s recently acquired C-band spectrum. Verizon engineers are using 60 MHz of C-band spectrum to deliver 5G service to customers. By the end of the year, customers in Victor Valley will be able to take advantage of more than twice that amount of spectrum as it becomes available for 5G Ultra Wideband. That additional bandwidth will turbo charge the service, offering significantly higher speeds, much greater capacity to accommodate more customers and more robust services

“We know customers count on us, and we work everyday to ensure we deliver for them. Our reliable, secure network connects families, friends, homes and businesses in Victor Valley, OK with best-in-class 5G Ultra Wideband technology,” said Phillip French, Vice President of Engineering and Operations for Verizon.

With these and other technology advancements on Verizon’s network, customers are able to use more data in more ways. This multi-service network powers:

  • Internet-of-Things (IoT) devices that do very little networking and stay in place,

  • smartphones with infinite opportunities to use data in a highly mobile environment,

  • home and business internet which provides connectivity via the wireless network for homes, offices and retail environments, and

  • complex solutions like Augmented Reality or enterprise real-time video and data analysis that require massive computing capabilities. 

As 5G technology advances and is even more widely adopted by consumers the variety of solutions that will use Verizon’s network will continue to evolve as well.
