Today, Verizon announces that Denver and Providence are the next two cities to get Verizons 5G Wideband network. Starting today, Denvers 5G service goes live with Providence, RI getting service starting on July 1.
Verizons 5G Ultra Wideband is designed for supplying 5G connectivity using spectrum higher than 24GHz. This infrastructure requires numerous small cell sites or nodes in order to cover dense populations namely metropolitan areas.
Denver will have 5G connectivity in concentrated areas of Highlands below 37th Street as well as areas of LoDo and near Coors Dielf.

Both Business and Consumer level customers will be able to benefit from the newly lit 5G networks using a compatible 5G smartphone or 5G Moto Mod via a compatible smartphone (Moto Z3, Z4). If you leave the 5G coverage area, youll automatically hand off toVerizons 4G LTE network.
