Verizon's 5G network is coming to Denver and Providence today on July 1

Verizon's 5G service is currently being deployed in Denver, Colorado, and will be available in Providence, Rhode Island from July 1. If you live in those cities, the courier says you will see typical download speeds of 450 Mbps, with peak speeds hitting 1.5 Gbps. Verizon plans to charge customers an additional $ 10 per month in 5G service, but the company is currently waiving that extra fee.

Verizon shared the above image of an LG V50 ThinQ, one of the four 5G tools on its network, which transmits 2 Gbps download speeds in Aurora, Colorado. This is a huge improvement on the already impressive 1 Gbps result The edge& # 39; s own Chris Welch saw last month in Chicago, one of the two cities where Verizon initially launched its mobile 5G service. The download speeds vary considerably depending on your proximity to one of the 5G nodes of the courier. If you go inside or are no longer in sight of one, you go very quickly to a 4G LTE signal.

Unfortunately, Verizon does not offer a 5G coverage card to show where you can take advantage of the fast mmWave spectrum. T-Mobile has recently done thatand while it certainly emphasizes how mature wadawave is at this early stage of 5G implementation, it is at least becoming transparent. However, Verizon has shared a number of specific locations in both cities, where you can find 5G coverage.

In Denver:

The Verizon 5G Ultra Wideband service will initially focus in areas of Highlands, south of 37 between Tejon and Navajo Street. The coverage can also be found in LoDo and around Coors Field. Businesses and consumers will also have 5G Ultra Wideband service in the Central Business District around popular attractions such as the Denver Center for the Performing Arts, Sculpture Park and outside Paramount Theater. Capitol Hill and Northern Sections of the Denver Tech Center also have the Verizon 5G Ultra Wideband service.

In Providence:

Verizon business customers and consumers will initially see 5G Ultra Wideband service in parts of College Hill, Federal Hill, Mt. Hope and around sights such as Brown University (Erickson Athletic Complex, Wriston Quadrangle), Rhode Island School of Design and Providence College.

After launching in Providence on July 1, Verizon's 5G network will run in four US cities. It claims to bring this to more cities in 2019, including:

Atlanta, Boston, Charlotte, Cincinnati, Cleveland, Dallas, Des Moines, Detroit, Houston, Indianapolis, Kansas City, Little Rock, Memphis, Phoenix, San Diego, Salt Lake City and Washington, D.C.

Verizon's 5G roll-out is behind T-Mobile, which will launch its service tomorrow in June 28 in six American cities: Atlanta, Cleveland, Dallas, Las Vegas, Los Angeles and New York City. Sprint also offers 5G services in different cities, although it uses a different approach and does not use a millimeter wave for its 5G network. Carriers race to bring 5G to more cities, even if the race itself is a farce.
