Verizon today took another step toward its goal of 5G coverage in 30 markets by the end of the year. Effective immediately, next-gen high speed data is now available in Washington DC, Atlanta, Detroit, and Indianapolis.
As is the case with Verizon’s other 5G cities, it’s Ultra Wideband mmWave technology that works best outdoors and tends to focus on areas where larger groups of people convene. Think college campuses, public parks, and stadiums.
In Washington DC, for instance, the network touches parts of more than 30 neighborhoods and landmarks, including the National Mall, The White House, George Washington University, Capital One Arena, Union Station, Dupont Circle, and the Georgetown Waterfront.
In Atlanta, you’ll find it in sections of Downtown, Midtown, Tech Square, Mercedes Benz Stadium, and Centennial Olympic Park.
Detroit consumers will have 5G service in parts of Dearborn, Livonia, and Troy while Indianapolis initially starts in neighborhoods like Arsenal Heights, Crown Hill, Grace Tuxedo Park, Historic Meridian Park, Lockerbie Square, Garfield Park, and Indiana University School of Medicine.
These new cities join Chicago, Denver, Providence, and Minneapolis/St. Paul and will continue to expand with time.
