Verizon Store Front

Verizon recently announced it is rolling out 5G network upgrades in 20 cities across the United States to provide faster, more reliable service to a significantly larger number of people. This is in addition to the 25 areas it upgraded earlier this year. 

If you live in one of these cities, expect to notice faster internet speeds:

  • Columbus, NE
  • Cozad, NE
  • Des Moines, IA
  • Durham, NC
  • Flint, MI
  • Grand Island, NE
  • Hastings, NE
  • Indianapolis, IN
  • Lansing, MI
  • Los Angeles, CA
  • Miami, FL
  • Nickerson, NE
  • North Platte, NE
  • Palm Bay, FL
  • Phoenix, AZ
  • Raleigh, NC
  • Rockford, IL
  • Spalding, NE
  • Syracuse, NY
  • Tilden, NE

Today, Verizon announced expansions in multiple cities in West Virginia as well. 

“Verizon is widely known for having an extremely reliable 5G network experience, and it’s exciting to see the positive impact our work has had in West Virginia,” said Dean Brauer, Vice President of Engineering and Operations for Verizon. “Our network engineers work tirelessly to provide unmatched connectivity to our customers across Huntington, Morgantown, Fairmont, and Bridgeport and beyond, and we will not slow down.”

There are several types of 5G Verizon and other mobile companies use, each one touting theirs is the fastest. Last year, Verizon added C-Band spectrum and added 5G Ultra Wideband, also known as millimeter-wave (mmWave) the previous year. 

During an investor event back in 2021, Verizon CEO Hans Vestberg pledged, “We will increase our capital by $10 billion over the next three years to put this spectrum into use as quickly as possible.” While this number is certain to change as Verizon continues its massive overhaul, the exact total isn’t as important as the service it’s providing to a larger area, especially in rural areas notorious for experiencing connection problems with any carrier.

The company aims to expand coverage to 175 million people while ramping up connection speeds and increasing fiber connection capacity, allowing approximately ten times the amount of data. In 2024, Verizon plans to provide coverage to over 250 million people with mid-band 5G.
