Carriers are busy finding ways to monetize the data speeds, capacity and latency improvements promised in the 5G technology of the future. Verizon has placed itself on the frontlines of development of 5G use cases, helping startups develop and test their ideas.
At Alley, a curated community for creators in the Chelsea neighborhood of Manhattan, five of those companies recently demonstrated the progress they’ve made since joining Verizon’s 5G incubator there in December 2017. With access to Verizon’s pre-commercial 5G network installed onsite, they’ve been able to put their concepts to the test, refine them, and demonstrate the true power of this game-changing technology.
