Verizon lights up 5G network in parts of Los Angeles
The Big Red announced today that its 5G Ultra Wideband service is now live in Los Angeles, California; well, parts of it anyway. If you feel like you need 5G speeds to stream your favorite 4K TV shows, video chat or download large amounts of data, here is where exactly you must be to achieve that.
As per Verizon's official statement, its 5G network will soon cover various regions in Los Angeles, but a more detailed coverage map will be available on December 20. So, customers in Los Angeles should get 5G service in parts of Downtown, Chinatown, Del Rey, and Venice around landmarks such as Grand Park, Los Angeles Convention Center, Union Station, LA Live, Staples Center, and Venice Beach Boardwalk.
Los Angeles is the 18th city where Verizon launched its 5G network, but more will follow in the coming months until the carrier covers the entire country. We'll update the story once Verizon reveals more details about the coverage maps later this week.
