Verizon enables 5G uploads, 30% speed increase over 4G

Verizon 5G

Verizon Wireless is making strides with its 5G network, reaching several new milestones this week. Rumor has is that the regular iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Max will only support sub-6GHz networks, so right now AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile would be the optimal carriers for those two devices.

mmWave is what is going to give 5G networks those gigabit speeds, which is good and all. In fact, reports earlier this year said that Verizon’s 4G LTE is faster than other 5G networks in user-experience testing. This may be a modest estimate with Ookla Speedtest reporting an average of 50.55Mbps, which, according to PC Mag, is a whopping 78 percent jump over existing 4G speeds.

Verizon's 5G uploads are available starting today in all of their 35 5G cities. Chicago's 5G Home subscribers also will be able to take advantage of this newly added feature.

San Diego will be the 35th city in the USA with 5G coverage from Verizon, from 28 May.


The service will go live on May 28th and will initially be available in parts of Mission Valley.

The report claims that Verizon's sustained success can be put down to its signal strength results, which have generally been stronger than those of the other carriers across the U.S., and Verizon's signal to noise ratio (SNR), which the report hailed as "exceptional".

And partnerships with Movandi, Pivotal Commware and Wistron NeWeb offer extender technology to amplify millimeter wave coverage in public spaces as well as homes. Instead of installing hardware on cellular poles, these extenders could be installed in an office building or a person's residence. The concept of the Labs is to create a physical space for customers, partners, entrepreneurs, students and others to work together and stress test their ideas on Verizon’s 5G Ultra Wideband network.

Verizon operates seven 5G Labs in the United States and the UK, designed as incubators for the 5G technologies that will change how we live, work and play. Smartphones rely on 4G networks and have to use 4G to leverage the speed of 5G connections.
