Verizon continues to aggressively build out their 5G Ultra Wideband network, bringing 5G Ultra Wideband to more customers in more new places and expanding coverage in current 5G Ultra Wideband markets.

Continued 5G Expansion
These new cities are part of Verizon’s promise to deliver over 14,000 new cell sites this year alone, further underlining its commitment to expanding its 5G network on mmWave spectrum while preparing for the launch of 5G service on its recently acquired C-band spectrum, which will cover an additional 100 million mobility customers in the first quarter of 2022. Meanwhile, Verizon’s other fixed wireless access products will reach 15 million homes by the end of 2021.

Furthering its expansion efforts, Verizon also recently announced it is continuing to increase 5G Ultra Wideband coverage through the use of signal repeaters, leading to more 5G Ultra Wideband coverage for 5G mobility and 5G Home Internet customers.

“We have a very aggressive network build program, fueled by continued expansion of 5G Ultra Wideband using our entire portfolio of spectrum, the strongest in the industry” said Ronan Dunne, CEO, Verizon Consumer Group. “Our spectrum position combined with our leading network means Verizon is well positioned to deliver the best possible 5G experience to customers — that’s 5G built right.”
