Verizon's 5G network spreads to more… stadiums, many more cities coming soon

Posted February 14, 2020 | Mobile | News


Less than two weeks after a heated Super Bowl during which it managed to win the download speed battle (at least in the small parts of the Hard Rock Stadium where football fans actually got a 5G signal) while losing the overall network quality war, Verizon continues its slow “5G Ultra Wideband” rollout.

That’s not a bad count, rising from 13 NFL stadiums just a few months ago, but although Verizon is oddly silent on the matter in its latest press release boasting this new number and the potential of its blazing fast 5G network to “transform sports and entertainment”, the truth is coverage remains awfully limited and fickle even across the same arena.
As perfectly illustrated by T-Mobile before and during the big game between the Kansas City Chiefs and San Francisco 49ers, getting a steady 5G signal can be quite hard for Verizon customers and maintaining it often proves outright impossible.

Unfortunately, we can’t tell you exactly where to expect the network to expand and when that will happen in 2020, but the 31 cities covered at the end of 2019 are set to become 60 in the not-so-distant future, which is certainly… something.
