Verizon Is More Than mmWave – Confirm Multi-Spectrum 5G Plans

Posted by at 3:36 pm on July 30, 2019

Verizon has confirmed that it will deploy 5G in radio frequency bands beyond the short-range mmWave the company is using for its initial 5G launches so far.

Verizon VP of network and technology Heidi Hemmer referred to a “multi-spectrum strategy” in comments to The Verge.

“We will be using at some point in the future every band of spectrum that we currently own” for the company’s 5G network, Hemmer said.

But she declined to go into any detail about which bands might be used or — more importantly — when. Verizon is the only carrier that has yet to formally announce plans to deploy 5G in sub-6-GHz frequency bands.

Its current 5G service in mmWave bands is fast, but coverage is limited to central downtown areas of major cities, and it does not reach indoors well.
