Verizon expanded its 5G footprint this morning by announcing that its 5G Ultra Wideband network can now be found in parts in Boston, Houston and Sioux Falls. With these three on board, Verizon has 5G in 18 cities.
To find 5G in these new cities, you need a 5G phone, such as Galaxy Note 10+ 5G, Galaxy S10 5G, LG V50 ThinQ or Moto Z phone with 5G Moto Mod.
After securing a 5G phone, 5G can be found in the following areas, according to Verizon:
- BOSTON : 5G Ultra Wideband service will be concentrated in the following areas: Fenway, along Brookline Avenue near Beth Israel Hospital and around such landmarks as: Fenway Park, Emmanuel College, Northeastern University, Simmons College, Harvard Medical School.
- HOUSTON : 5G Ultra Wideband service will be concentrated in the following areas: East Downtown, Uptown, Greenway Plaza, Museum District, Rice Village and around landmarks such as The Galleria Mall, NRG Stadium, BBVA Compass Stadium and Rice University Stadium.
- SIOUX FALLS : 5G Ultra Wideband service will be concentrated in downtown Sioux Falls around such landmarks as: Levitt at the Falls, Orpheum Theater, Washington Pavilion, State Theater and US Federal Courthouse.
As we have pointed out many times before, Verizon's 5G Ultra Wideband is basically like a hotspot 5G, where you need to be near a 5G tower, possibly in direct line of sight, and out in the open, because walking behind a door or entering a building will severely damage the connection. But if you are close to one, you can see wild speeds going into the 1-2Gbps range.
Not in any of the three cities and want this Verizon 5G action? The list below is all cities that have it, plus we also have a list of all US 5G cities from all carriers.
