For the third year in a row Verizon will be returning to the Big Game. This year, they’ll be debuting the 5G network to make the game safer and more fun for those in attendance. Verizon customers who have 5G-compatible devices will likely experience a ton of network improvements in certain parts of the stadium while watching the Big Game. So, what can game attendees expect?
Usually in huge crowds, like at sporting events, it can be difficult to do much of anything on your phone. Websites won’t load and your texts won’t go through because there are so many people overloading the network. With Verizon’s 5G network, that’s an issue of the past.
With a 5-G compatible smartphone like the Samsung Galaxy Note10+ 5G, you can search the web, send texts, stream content and more faster than ever.
Because the 5G network has the capacity to support up to 1 Million devices per square kilometer, videos, music, and files may actually download faster than normal. These quicker download speeds, referred to as “Flash Loading,” allows users to download movies, music and more in seconds.
5G also provides lower latency, which means you’ll experience ultra-low lag times and virtually no buffering when gaming, streaming music, and watching videos online.
First responders in the stadium will also have access to a much faster network, allowing them to respond to emergencies more quickly.
Verizon will be debuting two new ads during the Big Game that focus on how 5G is impacting first responders and firefighters. The 5G network is just getting started, but the possibilities are truly endless.
In addition to the Hard Rock Stadium where the Big Game is taking place, Verizon has partnered with the NFL to bring 5G Ultra Wideband to 12 other stadiums around the country, including:
- Bank of America Stadium (Carolina Panthers)
