Verizon is working to roll out 5G technology to its customers in the United States, the company announced today.
In an interview with CNET, CEO Lowell McAdam outlined how the company plans to roll 5G out to its wireless customers, and how its wireless network is “fully committed to 5G.”
In fact, McAdam told CNET that the company has already begun testing its 5G network in the US, and that Verizon will deploy it on 5G devices that are already in its hands.
The 5G rollout will be a “huge leap forward,” McAdam said.
“We’re very committed to being there.”
He said Verizon will “roll out 5GHz in the coming weeks” for its “most aggressive customers,” which include “large retailers” and large organizations.
Verizon plans to begin rolling out 5GB and 5GB-capable devices to customers in March, and will roll out 1GB and 1GB-ready smartphones and tablets to customers by May.
In addition to 5GB phones and tablets, Verizon will rollout 5G in select markets in 2019.
