By this initiative of launching 5G internet services, the firm will expand its presence from Chicago, Houston and Los Angeles
One of the largest US telecom companies – Verizon Communications Inc. on Thursday said that it will launch 5G internet for businesses in 21 cities of the US in this month.
By this initiative of launching 5G internet services, the firm will expand its presence from Chicago, Houston and Los Angeles.
In cities of Atlanta, Detroit, Las Vegas and San Francisco, the company is offering a 10-year price lock for new customers, no data limits and plans ranging from 100 Mbps to 400 Mbps to business users.
The wireless carrier started rolling out 5G internet services last year using lower spectrum bands, achieving speeds similar to those of T-Mobile but trailing AT&T, according to a study by RootMetrics.
Bringing the firm’s full suite of services from video-collaboration tools to edge computing, Verizon plans to expand its 5G internet business footprint throughout the country.
Be it on a factory floor or oil rig or in an office, edge computing uses augmented reality and machine learning to analyse bulk data in the place in which it was gathered, but requires the fast data transfers made possible by 5G.
In its bid to target business customers, Verizon has also struck deals with Microsoft and Nokia for helping clients automate factory floors, lower costs and speed up data traffic through private 5G networks.
