Compared with the previous-generation mobile data network, 5G is complicated and needs a suitable configuration in both mobile and carrier sides. Most of the 5G mobiles have similar networks other than US carriers, especially Verizon. To access better speed 5G UW, You need a mmWave antenna and special configuration. That’s why companies like Samsung and OnePlus are working on different versions for US carriers. So, Even if you have 5G mobile, You can’t access Verizon 5G. But after the recent Nationwide 5G rollout with low bandwidth, Some of the regular Samsung mobiles that don’t support UW 5G can access Verizon 5G. Even if you can’t get that much speed to compare with UW, You can get better data speed than your LTE. But it also depends on the availability and location.
Verizon announced this week 5G Nationwide coverage that will be available to more than 200 million users. Now, selected Samsung mobile phones started experiencing the 5G ultra-wideband internet service as a part of Verizon Nationwide 5G coverage.
Verizon 5G Nationwide Coverage with low-band 5G
After T-Mobile Nationwide 5G coverage, On 15.10.2020, Verizon’s announcement about 5G Nationwide coverage is a giant leap towards the internet’s future infrastructure. This expansion in technology will shape the future as a new world with low latency and ultra-fast communications.
Verizon is already providing 5G ultra-wideband internet into 55 cities. It introduced the 5G Nationwide coverage and added 19 more cities, 19 stadiums, and six airports to the list. Verizon expects to provide this 5G Nationwide service to more than 200 million people.
Difference Between 5G Ultra-Wideband And Nationwide low-band 5G
The earlier 5G ultra-wideband network uses the millimeter wave spectrum or mmWave spectrum. It is ultra-fast, but it cannot travel long distances; neither can it penetrate buildings efficiently.
While 5G Nationwide uses the DSS (Dynamic Spectrum Sharing), DSS technology allows the 5G to run simultaneously with 4G LTE on multiple spectrum bands using the same infrastructure. It means when you move from a high-band area, your 5G enabled device will be using the 5G on lower bands. Running both lower and high bands simultaneously enables Verizon to use its resource at an optimal level to serve both 4G and 5G customers. Unlike in other countries, when you want to use Verizon 5G in Ultra speed, You need specialized mmWave antenna 5G mobiles. That’s why Samsung released an exclusive S20 5G model with UWB support for US regions.
