What is 5G and what can it do?
5G represents the fifth generation of cellular mobile communications. But it’s more than just an update of what’s come before. It’s a transformative change to the way cellular networks operate—one that will open up entirely new possibilities for business.
What is 5G Ultra Wideband?
Our 5G Ultra Wideband network uses the mmWave spectrum, which empowers all kinds of new possibilities. It can carry massive amounts of data at very high speeds and with minimal network latency. This spectrum can also easily handle spikes in data demand from consumers, whether they’re mobile-first users or sophisticated and fully connected industry innovators.
The 5G Ultra Wideband difference
What sets 5G Ultra Wideband apart from the competition? Here are four key elements that help it stand out.
Massive fiber resources
We’ve spent several years deploying a massive fiber network, which is integral to our delivering a revolutionary 5G network. As part of this effort, we plan to spend over $1 billion over the next few years on new fiber-optic cable from Corning
Small cell deployment
We’ve also installed new fiber-fed small cells to densify our 4G LTE network. Many of our 4G locations will also be used to support 5G
Critical spectrum holdings
Verizon has built a large portfolio of mmWave spectrum through company and license acquisitions—all to help ensure that our customers receive the best 5G network experience
We have network locations nationwide that are ideally suited to housing edge-computing resources. Compute at the edge will allow us to deliver access to the tools, power, real estate and expertise to deploy at scale
