The big red carrier says that its 5G Nationwide network is now available to 24 million more people in Central Texas, Upstate New York, and the New England areas as well as Tulsa, OK. This brings the low-band Verizon 5G Nationwide to a total of 230 million people covered in more than 2,700 cities and towns.
5G Nationwide uses low-band spectrum and isn't as fast as 5G Ultra Wideband, but can cover much greater distances. Verizon has been adding 5G Nationwide support to several of its existing Samsung and LG phones lately, and that network also works with devices like the Pixel 5, LG Wing, Motorola One 5G UW, and all four iPhone 12 models.
Verizon has also expanded its 5G Ultra Wideband network today. Coverage is now live in parts of Tampa, St. Petersburg, Albuquerque, and Durham. In total, Verizon's high-band 5G Ultra Wideband coverage is available in parts of 61 cities as well as 48 stadiums and seven airports.
5G Ultra Wideband uses millimeter wave spectrum that Verizon touts can offer super-fast speeds up to 4Gbps in some areas, but the coverage doesn't reach far. Devices that support Verizon's 5G Ultra Wideband include the Samsung Galaxy S20 and Note 20 phones, the LG Wing, the Motorola Edge+, the Pixel 5 and Pixel 4a 5G, and the iPhone 12 series.
