Verizon today announced that it’s expanding its nascent 5G network to four more cities in the United States. Its customers in Atlanta, Detroit, Indianapolis, and Washington, D.C. will be able to access the next-generation mobile network in select areas. This means that Verizon’s 5G service is now available in a total of nine cities across the United States.
Verizon has previously said that it’s going to bring the service to more than 30 cities across the country by the end of this year. It will certainly try hard to meet that goal before the year ends as other carriers are also being quick to roll out their 5G service to more cities.
The carrier does provide specific descriptions for service locations. We’re still a ways away from city-wide 5G coverage. No carrier in the United States is offering that at this point in time. Coverage inside buildings may very well be virtually non-existent.
Nevertheless, those who do happen to have a 5G smartphone will now be able to take advantage of the up to claimed gigabit speeds on their mobile device. When accessing the service at the specific locations where coverage is available, users will experience a noticeable change in the speeds that they get on the mobile network.
