group looking at phonesVerizon’s 5G Ultra Wideband network is now available in parts of New York City, Boise Idaho and Panama City. This makes a total of 13 cities that have access to Verison’s 5G Ultra Wideband service.

This high speed network means the difference of downloading movies in mere seconds rather than minutes, and real-time experiences with lower latency.

“We’re continuing to build and expand our 5G Ultra Wideband network in both large cities, like New York and Chicago, and in smaller cities like Boise, Panama City and Providence,” says Kyle Malady, Verizon’s Executive Vice President and Chief Technology Officer. “Today our customers can expect to find our 5G Ultra Wideband network in business districts and public spaces where residents gather and tourists visit, and it will expand quickly to other areas as well. Last year we made a commitment to our customers in Panama City to include 5G as part of our comprehensive network rebuild in response to Hurricane Michael. We are delivering on that promise.”

Verizon plans to expand 5G access to more than 30 cities by the end of this year.
