Verizon lights up 5G Ultra Wideband across Arizona

Customers in Lake Havasu City, Kingman, Wickenburg, Winslow, Pinetop Lakeside, and Show Low now benefit from new high-performance 5G technology with higher speeds, greater capacity and network reliability

PHOENIX, May 18, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Residents and businesses across Arizona, including Lake Havasu City, Kingman, Wickenburg, Winslow, Pinetop Lakeside, and Show Low now have access to higher speeds and greater capacity from Verizon’s award-winning 5G network. Verizon’s 5G Ultra Wideband brings power and performance comparable to a wired broadband internet connection to customers’ pockets.

Verizon’s 5G Ultra Wideband enables people to do things on their mobile device that many could only do before when connected to their home internet service. This includes everything from downloading huge documents and streaming movies in HD audio and video, to playing console quality games and conducting video chats, video conferencing and FaceTime calls with clear sound and video.

“Verizon’s expansion into new markets across Arizona will connect more residents and visitors with this advanced technology across our great state,” Arizona Chamber of Commerce and Industry President and CEO Danny Seiden said. “The availability of this platform for innovation will continue to advance technological and economic growth in our communities.”

“Verizon is widely known for having an extremely reliable 5G network experience, and we are working aggressively to bring this positive impact to more areas in Arizona,” said Phillip French, Vice President of Engineering and Operations for Verizon. “Our network provides unmatched reliable connectivity to our customers across the state, and we will not slow down.”

Network enhancements in Arizona

These deployments use Verizon’s recently acquired C-band spectrum. Verizon will deploy 5G Ultra Wideband using 100 MHz of C-Band spectrum in multiple Arizona markets, and will add even more bandwidth once all of its licensed spectrum is made available. This additional bandwidth, which will be available at the end of this year, will provide exceptional speed and capacity.

Lastly, the addition of 5G service in Arizona will result in exponential increases in data carried into and out of the cell sites serving the community, which requires upgraded fiber optic cable links. Verizon has increased the capacity on the fiber connections in many cell sites so they can carry 10 times the amount of data.
