NEW YORK, June 27, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Today, Verizon officially turned on its 5G Ultra Wideband Network in select areas of Denver and starting on Monday July 1, 2019 its 5G service will be available in select areas of Providence. Businesses and consumers in those cities will be able to access Verizon’s 5G Ultra Wideband network with one of four 5G-enabled smartphones – the LG V50 ThinQ 5G™, the moto z3 and z4 combined with the 5G moto mod, or the Samsung Galaxy S10 5G – the most 5G devices available on any 5G network.
“We continue to lead the world in 5G," said Kyle Malady, Verizon’s chief technology officer. “Chicago and Minneapolis were the first cities to have 5G mobile commercial service, and now we’re expanding to Denver and Providence on our way to providing 5G Ultra Wideband service in more than 30 US cities this year.”

Customers in Denver and Providence should expect typical download speeds of 450 Mbps, with peak speeds of above 1.5 Gbps and latency less than 30 milliseconds with regular improvement in 5G Ultra Wideband speed, latency and overall network performance as Verizon engineers, working with our technology partners, continue to enhance and expand the network. Verizon has a long, proud history of rapidly building out networks and being first to 3G, first to 4G nationwide and first to 5G.
