NEW YORK, Aug. 22, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Verizon continues to lead in 5G and we’re bringing 5G service to more cities and public locations with more 5G devices. On August 23rd 5G Ultra Wideband service will be available in parts of Greater Phoenix, Ariz. Businesses and consumers in and around Greater Phoenix will get to experience 5G speed and bandwidth, and download movies, presentations and large data files super-fast. This is the tenth U.S. city to get Verizon 5G Ultra Wideband mobility service since April.
Where to find 5G in Greater Phoenix
Initially, Verizon 5G Ultra Wideband service will be concentrated in Downtown Phoenix around several well-known landmarks, including: Phoenix Convention Center, Talking Stick Resort Arena, The Orpheum Theatre, CityScape, and Chase Field. It will also be available in Tempe, on the Arizona State University campus. When customers move outside Verizon’s 5G Ultra Wideband coverage area, the 5G-enabled devices hand off the signal to Verizon’s award-winning 4G network.
5G Ultra Wideband service moves indoors
Verizon is working with Boingo Wireless (NASDAQ: WIFI), a leading distributed antenna system (DAS), small cells and Wi-Fi provider, to bring 5G Ultra Wideband service indoors and to public spaces – places like airports, stadiums and arenas, office buildings, hotels, etc. Verizon and Boingo are working together to architect a hyper-dense network designed for large and small indoor spaces as part of Verizon’s ongoing 5G network expansions.
