Verizon is continuing to expand its 5G Ultra Wideband network across New Jersey.
The offering – which is the carrier’s fastest form of 5G – has been undergoing a rollout over the past year and now reaches more than 200 million people, which is roughly 2 out of 3 people in the U.S., according to Verizon.
By the end of the first quarter of 2023, Verizon expects to offer the service nationwide.
In a statement, Chris Flood, Northeast consumer vice president at Verizon, said, “Residents and businesses in the Northeast have enjoyed the reliability and fast speeds of our Fios services, and now we’re excited to bring our 5G Home and 5G Business Internet services to more people in the area. This expansion will also provide our customers the opportunity to save on their home internet when they combine with select Verizon mobile plans.”
According to Verizon, 5G offers faster download speed and capacity to support “data heavy actions,” allowing customers to do everything from downloading big documents to seamlessly streaming movies to playing console quality games to conducting video conferencing calls with clearer sound and video.
