Verizon lights up 5G Ultra Wideband across Wisconsin
HARTFORD, Wis., May 30, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Residents across Eau Claire, Appleton, Monticello, Gays Mills, Clayton, Hartford, Newburg, Fredonia, Oshkosh, Kenosha and Beloit now have access to higher speeds and greater capacity from Verizon’s award-winning 5G network. Verizon’s 5G Ultra Wideband brings power and performance comparable to a wired broadband internet connection to customers’ pockets.
Verizon's 5G Ultra Wideband enables people to do things on their mobile device that many could only do before when connected to their home internet service. This includes everything from downloading huge documents and streaming movies in HD audio and video, to playing console quality games and conducting video chats, video conferencing and FaceTime calls with clear sound and video.
“Expanding 5G service into more communities will greatly benefit folks in every corner of Wisconsin, ensuring more Wisconsinites can be part of the 21st-century workforce, economy, and healthcare and education systems we’re working to build together. Verizon’s investment in 5G Ultra Wideband service means even better benefits and more opportunities to residents and visitors across our state,” said Wisconsin Governor Tony Evers.
“Customers across the US have enthusiastically embraced 5G service from Verizon and we are very excited to bring this reliable 5G network experience to more residents and visitors across Wisconsin,” said Dean Brauer, Vice President of Engineering and Operations for Verizon. “Our network engineers work tirelessly to provide transformative connectivity to our customers across the Badger State, and we will not slow down.”
Network enhancements in Wisconsin
These deployments use Verizon’s recently acquired C-band spectrum. Verizon will deploy 5G Ultra Wideband using up to 100 MHz of C-Band spectrum in multiple Wisconsin markets, and will add even more bandwidth once all of its licensed spctrum is made available. This additional bandwidth, which will be available at the end of this year, will provide exceptional speed and capacity.
Lastly, the addition of 5G service in Wisconsin will result in exponential increases in data carried into and out of the cell sites serving the community, which requires upgraded fiber optic cable links. Verizon has increased the capacity on the fiber connections in many cell sites so they can carry 10 times the amount of data.
