Verizon’s 5G Ultra Wideband network utilizes small cells, or nodes, in addition to traditional towers. 5G small cells are similar to 4G towers in form and function. Verizon is building thousands of additional 5G nodes to maximize and deliver 5G millimeter wave technology to our customers. Since 5G small cells are smaller than a traditional macro cell tower, they can exist more discreetly. 5G’s small cells support the high frequency millimeter waves needed for the ultra-low latency and high data speeds of 5G.
