Verizon Testing Super Fast 5G Internet With Customers in 11 Cities

Posted on Jun 16, 2017

Verizon disclosed plans to pilot test a new super-fast wireless service with customers in 11 cities starting in April 2017. The next generation, or 5G, service will provide Internet speeds at a gigabit per second or faster, comparable to the fastest speeds offered by fiber optic wired services from Google, AT&T and others.

Working with partners Samsung and Ericsson, Verizon said on Wednesday it will offer the free trials to selected customers in Ann Arbor, Atlanta, Bernardsville, N.J., Brockton, Mass., Dallas, Denver, Houston, Miami, Sacramento, Seattle, and Washington, D.C. in the first half of the year. Verizon has built out several hundred cell sites with 5G transmitters capable of reaching several thousand customer homes and businesses.
