The Possibilities of Verizon’s 5G
This post is sponsored by Verizon. I was paid for this post.
I’m not a huge tech person. I mean, I’m pretty comfortable with my phone and my social media, and I don’t hate having a certain digital personal assistant turn things on and off for me, but I don’t consider myself a techie. But, I am excited about the possibilities of 5G. It feels almost like living in the future.
What is 5G? To understand 5G, it’s helpful to understand what came before it. I got all of this information from Verizon’s website, so I strongly suggest if you want to learn more, you check it out.
The first generation of mobile tech (1G) was just about voice. You know, those huge, clunky phones you see in cars in movies from the 1990s? That’s 1G, you can see photos on the Verizon website. 2G was basically your old fashioned flip phone, mainly for talking, but a little texting, too. The move to 3G is when we started to get into smartphones. And 4G, with its blazing data-transfer rates, gave rise to all the different phones, tablets, and other connected items we have today.
5G technology is even more! Verizon has the engineering experience, deep fiber assets, wireless millimeter wave spectrum and partnerships to move huge amounts of data at unimaginable speeds. With 5G, we’re going to be able to download our favorite television series even more quickly than we do now. This might have you asking, is it available today?
By the end of 2019, Verizon 5G rolled out in parts of over 30 cities with more coming in 2020. Verizon 5G Ultra Wideband was the world’s first 5G network, launched in April 2019. 5G’s super-fast speeds, massive bandwidth and low latency should be amazing for both businesses and consumers.
Obviously, not all the phones available today are going to be 5G capable. So, if you’re thinking of getting a new phone for yourself or someone else over the holidays, make sure to read up on the 5G capable phones.
I don’t know about you, but I’m super excited to be living in the future!
