This Week in 5G: From Sea to Shining Sea


More 5G deployments were announced this week across America among other developments. Let’s dive in!

Verizon announced 20 cities that are set to benefit from 5G deployments in 2019, in addition to Minneapolis and Chicago, where service was launched earlier in April. The provider has also opened preorders for Samsung’s Galaxy S10 5G.

Sprint CTO John Saw spoke about the company’s coming launch of 5G service on their massive MIMO network in a few weeks. A flashing 5G icon on the back of some of their first 5G phones will indicate that devices are running on 5G.

Verizon’s 5G Lab in New York is incubating many next-gen technologies, including 3D holograms that leverage 5G to dramatically cut down on processing and streaming time.

The banking sector anticipates better connectivity for customers with 5G, including the ability to create visualizations of complex financial information in a bank branch.

That’s all for this week. See you next time!
