5G is coming in 2017 as Verizon announces test program

5G is coming in 2017 as Verizon announces test program

Verizon is helping its agenda as well by announcing today that it's going to conduct 5G trials in 11 cities across the United States by mid-2017.

Several hundred homes and businesses in Ann Arbor (MI), Atlanta (GA), Bernardsville (NJ), Brockton (MA), Dallas (TX), Denver (CO), Houston (TX), Miami (FL), Sacramento (CA), Seattle (WA) and Washington, D.C. will participate.

Verizon isn't alone in its wireless efforts, as AT&T recently announced trials for its AirGig 5G service as well.

Verizon's announcement comes shortly after AT&T described its plans for "5G evolution" testing in Austin and Indianapolis.




In partnership with Samsung, Big Red is almost ready to pilot test its new gigabit-class wireless service in 11 cities. Instead, it is meant to replace physical wired connections for internet and allow home or corporate users to wirelessly connect to 5G networks for faster upload and download speeds. Verizon says that the entire network should be up and running by the middle of the year.

5G enable devices are now being manufactured according to the release along with chipsets and infrastructure products. It expects the first 5G networks to go live in 2020. "Network density is increasing to meet the demands of customers, and following the FCC's aggressive action on 5G spectrum, the time is right to deliver the next generation of broadband services with 5G".

Verizon will soon offer a preview of what 5G will feel like when the networking standard becomes more widespread.

"With 5G, Verizon is once again poised to usher in a new era of network technology, setting the pace for both 5G technical development and its emerging eco-system".
