Verizon expanded its 5G footprint this morning by announcing that its 5G Ultra Wideband network can now be found in parts of Boston, Houston, and Sioux Falls. With those three onboard, Verizon has 5G in 18 cities.
To find 5G in these new cities, you’ll need a 5G phone, like the Galaxy Note 10+ 5G, Galaxy S10 5G, LG V50 ThinQ, or Moto Z phone with 5G Moto Mod.
Once you have secured 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 such 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 Theatre, Washington Pavilion, State Theatre, and US Federal Courthouse.
As we’ve pointed out plenty of times before, Verizon’s 5G Ultra Wideband is basically like hotspot 5G, where you need to be close to a 5G tower, possibly in direct line of sight, and out in the open, because going behind a door or into a building will severely cripple the connection. But if you are close to one, you could see wild speeds that venture into the 1-2Gbps range.
Not in any of those three cities and want in on this Verizon 5G action? The list below is every city that has it, plus we also have a list of all US 5G cities from all carriers.
