Verizon True 5G Network: The Next Generation of Mobility
5G is the next generation of wireless technology, creating a powerful new network that offers significantly higher speed, capacity and capabilities. Verizon 5G Ultra Wideband’s ultrafast speeds and increased bandwidth will make it possible to do things that previously were not practical on wireless networks.
Verizon 5G Ultra Wideband will offer:
- Ultra-High Speeds – up to 20 times the speed of 4G or more.
- Ultra-Low Latency – lag time so low it achieves single millisecond latencies.
- Greater Capacity – about 10 times the capacity of 4G and 100 times in the future.
- Sustainability – 5G requires up to 90% less energy than 4G for network operations.
- Data Volume – 5G is designed to support up to 10 TB/s/km2, enabling it to carry a massive amount of data for many simultaneous users, which will make a big difference in high-density areas like airports, stadiums and urban areas.
- Reliability – Verizon Wireless has been #1 in overall network performance in the U.S. 11 times in a row. The same commitment and standards apply to 5G.
