Verizon hits incredible 5G download speed record
Verizon's mmWave 5G network may not have the broadest "nationwide" 5G coverage compared to T-Mobile but it certainly has the fastest commercially available 5G in the US due to its exclusive high-bands utilization.

Partnering with Qualcomm and Ericsson, Verizon has now rolled up its sleeves and doubled down on its mmWave commitment, achieving a world-beating peak 5G speed of 5.06 Gbps.

Notice that the promises are not only about speed, which can effectively be double the current 5Gbps record that Verizon just hit. 

Networks are fast enough as they are, even the 4G LTE ones, but, more importantly, the 5G rollout promises very low latency, and, above all, a myriad of connected devices getting those vast speeds simultaneously.
