Verizon Launches Fastest 5G Network in the World in Jersey City

Verizon 5G Ultra Wideband service is now live in parts of Jersey City. This marks a huge leap forward in this new era of technology-led disruption and innovation. In addition, Verizon’s 5G Ultra Wideband service, built on millimeter wave spectrum, is seeing doubled download speeds – reaching up to four Gbps in some locations – thanks to carrier aggregation. Verizon is also launching 5G Nationwide service for over 200 million people across more than 1800 cities around the country including residents of New Jersey. To see where Verizon 5G service is available in New Jersey, visit their coverage maps page.

“The addition of 5G Ultra Wideband coverage is a game changer for Jersey City residents and businesses, particularly as we move into an era of remote work and education,” said Gov. Phil Murphy. “As New Jersey seeks to regain our place at the top of the innovation economy, 5G capabilities will help increase our competitiveness as a home for the companies of tomorrow.”

“Verizon’s 5G announcement for Jersey City is another great step to advance economic development opportunities for businesses of all sizes,” said Meadowlands Chamber of Commerce CEO Jim Kirkos. “5G technology will especially allow our small business job creators to leverage innovative tools to compete in the global marketplace. Access to this game changing technology will allow New Jersey businesses to lead and keep the great American innovation spirit flourishing!”

Verizon customers in Jersey City should expect to see 5G Ultra Wideband service around the following areas: Bayside Park, The Heights, and Journal Square. To see the complete 5G Ultra Wideband coverage area in the city go to: verizon.com/coverage-map.

Verizon continues to provide unprecedented performance with its 5G Ultra Wideband service, the fastest 5G in the world that was built from the ground up for industrial and commercial use cases.

Verizon’s 5G Ultra Wideband boasts speeds multiple times faster than 4G. As the technology matures, it is expected to be able to handle data volumes 100 times larger than today’s 4G service, and provide ultra-low latencies, which is the time it takes for a signal to make a round trip from point A to point B. Customers in Jersey City can now experience ultra-fast wireless speeds and take advantage of new immersive customer experiences never before available wirelessly.

“We have been out front leading the 5G revolution and driving the technology that will create transformational experiences for customers,” said Kyle Malady, chief technology officer at Verizon. “Our goal with this game-changing technology is to reshape the world around us. With today’s launches, we are another step farther along on that journey.”

5G nationwide coverage on Verizon

Today, Verizon also announced its launch of 5G Nationwide to customers in New Jersey. Verizon’s 5G Nationwide runs on lower spectrum bands than 5G Ultra Wideband, using an advanced technology called Dynamic Spectrum Sharing (DSS). Dynamic Spectrum Sharing allows 5G service to run simultaneously with 4G LTE on the same spectrum band. With DSS, when customers move outside Verizon’s 5G Ultra Wideband coverage area, their 5G-enabled devices will remain on 5G technology using lower bands of spectrum.

This new technology allows Verizon to use its full portfolio of current spectrum resources to serve 4G and 5G customers, maximizing their experience on the Verizon network. Customers can use Verizon’s network in a variety of ways – from virtual learning to real-time gaming – that requires the ability to allocate spectrum resources in real-time.
