Those spending Memorial Day weekend at Niagara Falls, along the Jersey Shore and at the beaches in Delaware or in Ocean City, Md., now have access to 5G Ultra Wideband service from Verizon that the carrier describes as super-fast.
Vacationers and residents of these summer resort areas can now experience ultra-fast wireless speeds, which can allow them download and stream movies and TV shows in seconds while relaxing in the sun, keeping up with things at the office and videoconferencing and collaborating in near-real time, and to take advantage of new immersive games and experiences wirelessly, according to Verizon.
“Small business customers using Verizon 5G in these markets now have access to the technology that can dramatically accelerate their digital presence,” information provide by Verizon reads. “Those charged with keeping the residents and visitors in these locations safe will also see the future benefits of the transformative power of 5G. Through Verizon Frontline, the advanced network and technology built for first responders, public safety professionals in these areas could be able to benefit from the high speeds and low latency of 5G in gathering real-time situational intelligence, conducting augmented reality (AR) or virtual reality training prior to an influx of visitors, or simply collecting vehicular or pedestrian traffic data to make traffic flow adjustments.”
Kyle Malady, chief technology officer at Verizon, said that as people start to re-engage in normal activities like vacationing, spending the day at the shore and traveling, the power of Verizon’s 5G Ultra Wideband would be on full display. “We have designed this network specifically to handle the data traffic of large crowds in some of the most popular destinations in the United States. As we see crowds start to grow, traffic at airports and train stations rise and events start to come back, we will be ready to provide the world-class 5G experience our customers want,” he said.
Verizon described the coverage as follows:
With travel starting to open up again, the company said that Verizon 5G Ultra Wideband service is available in parts of Chicago O’Hare, Columbus, San Antonio, Des Moines, Salt Lake City, Milwaukee, Dulles International, Chicago Midway International, McCarran International, Tampa International, Indianapolis International, Reagan International and John Wayne Airports and, soon to follow, Pittsburgh International Airport. 5G Ultra Wideband is available in parts of more than 70 cities.
