Company Overview

Profiling Verizon Wireless is a considerable task. Please bear with us while we work to complete this dossier.

Verizon IoT

To augment IoT services provided by the company's LTE-M network since March 2017, Verizon launched its NB-IoT network in May 2019. The new network operates in the guardband of the company's existing LTE carriers including B13 (700 MHz).

Verizon 5G

Despite officially inaugurating its 5G network in October 2018 as a fixed wireless 'home broadband' network, Verizon claimed a world first when on the 3rd April 2019 it announced its '5G Ultra Wideband' network as the first smartphone-compatible 5G network. Both fixed wireless and mobile networks are based on Verizon's mmWave n261 (28 GHz) 5G carrier. Verizon uses 400 MHz of its 28 GHz spectrum holdings, the largest channel size permitted in 5G mmWave bands. 

Requiring twice the amount of base stations for the same coverage area, Verizon has not yet leveraged its 39 GHz spectrum holdings for 5G.
