Verizon CEO Hans Vestberg took the stage at Apple’s iPhone 12 launch on Tuesday to announce the nationwide rollout of 5G networking.
Verizon has so far introduced 5G broadband in 55 U.S. cities, 43 stadiums and seven airports. Vestberg pointed out the “transformative” ultra-wideband technology is 20 times faster than 4G and outlined its groundbreaking capability. In a statement Vestberg says:
“Me and Tim Cook discussed this more than a year ago,” he said. “And of course we are sharing a lot of our technologies between our companies because ultimately, you can have a great handset but you’re also going to need a great network … It’s a proud moment for us.”
