Verizon to Offer 5G Service to Pilot Customers

Shares of Verizon were slightly higher Wednesday after the wireless carrier said it will start offering 5G pre-commercial services to pilot customers in 11 US markets during H1.

“Network density is increasing to meet the demands of customers, and following the FCC’s aggressive action on 5G spectrum, the time is right to deliver the next generation of broadband services with 5G,” said Adam Koeppe, vice president of network planning at Verizon.

Woojune Kim, vice president of next generation business team at Samsung Electronics, which is a partner of the Verizon 5G Technology Forum, said, “The 5G systems we are deploying will soon provide wireless broadband service to homes, enabling customers to experience cost-competitive, gigabit speeds that were previously only deliverable via fiber.”
