Thank you to Verizon Wireless for sponsoring this post.
Do you remember when we lived in a 1G world? I sure recall those enormous analog cellphones, the ones we laugh about when we see them pictured in old movies from the 1990s. Thankfully, the 1G, 2G, and 3G worlds are behind us. And while most of us are enjoying our 4G lives right now, there’s something on the horizon (and in some cities across the U.S. actually already here). I’m talking about Verizon’s 5G network.
What is 5G (and why do we want it)?
5G is the fifth generation of wireless technology. Forget cables running through your walls. Verizon 5G Home is wireless and runs on a much higher frequency than 4G LTE. To make a solid foundation for 5G, Verizon is installing 37.2 million miles of fiber optic cables to strengthen the existing network.
Okay, but what will it mean for my family and I, our businesses, and lifestyle?
According to Verizon, 5G will be the “fastest, most robust technology the world has ever seen”. That’s pretty impressive and will most certainly change the way we live our day to day lives – at home, at school, at work, and for me, while traveling.
Let’s face it, we all enjoy our 4G capabilities, but we find it has limitations. There are challenges with speed and lag-time, but also specific challenges when in certain locations (you know what I’m talking about, right?). I feel the pain in some airports, hotels, and destinations. So I’m excited to learn more.
Is Your City 5G Ready?

Chicago and Minneapolis were the world’s first cities to get Verizon’s 5G Ultra Wideband mobility service, but there are more cities on the slate for 2019.

2019 should bring 5G to cities like Atlanta, Boston, Charlotte, Cincinnati, Cleveland, Columbus, Dallas, Des Moines, Denver, Detroit, Kansas City, Little Rock, Memphis, Phoenix, Providence, San Diego, Salt Lake City and Washington DC.

A Verizon 5G Commitment and a Challenge (Winners awarded up to $1 Million)
Verizon has made a significant commitment and has asked the broad wireless industry to do the same.
They are committed to only labeling something 5G if new device hardware is connecting to the network using new radio technology to deliver new capabilities. 5G isn’t 4G after all.
As part of this commitment, Verizon is on a nationwide search for the “best products, services, and applications that will bring the true power of 5G to life”.
Submissions close July 15th so get ready! Winners will be awarded up to $1 million, be given access to the Verizon 5G Lab, and will receive an opportunity for Verizon to invest in their company in a future fundraising round. WHOA!
GET READY NOW –> So much excitement for our future and for some of us, that future is now! Check to see if your city and your home is ready for 5G!
