5G Ultra Wideband - 5G expansion

Go Ultra: Verizon 5G Ultra Wideband is expanding

When Verizon first introduced 5G, it set a new standard for wireless. With faster download speeds and near-zero lag —along with sleek, stylish devices built for 5G performance —we’re able to connect, work, and stay entertained better than ever before. 

It’s been a great start, however, there’s now even more to enjoy. Get ready to go Ultra as Verizon 5G Ultra Wideband (UW) expands even further.


What is 5G Ultra Wideband?

If you’re not familiar with the term, there are a couple things that you should know about 5G.

1. 5G Nationwide operates at a low-band spectrum, making it comparable to 4G/4G LTE. It’s not quite as fast as 5G UW, however, it provides the most coverage for customers. 

2. 5G UW uses high-band millimeter wave spectrum for lightning speeds and targeted coverage. That’s why it was previously only available in limited areas and was less widespread than 5G Nationwide.

When it comes to  5G Nationwide vs. 5G Ultra Wideband, one of the most frustrating obstacles for users has been availability. With Verizon 5G Ultra Wideband updates, that hurdle is about to become smaller.

Updates for 5G Ultra Wideband

Verizon is introducing C-band, which operates in the mid-range spectrum. This will help to bridge the divide in 5G Nationwide and 5G UW performance. It offers fast speeds and more coverage than high-band. The addition of C-band means that Ultra Wideband is now available to 100 million people in 1,700+ cities across the country.

Over 2022 and 2023, coverage is expected to increase to up to 175 million people. In the coming years, over 250 million customers will have access to Ultra Wideband.

Even better, most 5G devices, like iPhone 13 Pro Max and Google Pixel 6, are already compatible with C-band. Going forward, all new 5G phones from Verizon will work with C-band as well.
