By Telecom Tech Outlook | Wednesday, January 08, 2020

In a recent release, Verizon network claimed that with access to 5G services, customers can now have real-time mobile experiences, super-fast speeds, massive bandwidth, and ultra-low latency.

Fremont, CA: Verizon, an American telecommunications company that offers wireless products and services, announced its 5G Ultra Wideband Network for customers in Hoboken. Hoboken is the first city in New Jersey to get 5G Ultra Wideband Network service and the 21st city in the U.S. In a recent release, Verizon network claimed that with access to 5G services, customers can now have real-time mobile experiences, super-fast speeds, massive bandwidth, and ultra-low latency.

With the 5G Ultra Wideband service, customers can now stream 4K videos with virtually no buffering, video chat with almost no disturbance, and can download large presentations, the company said.

"New Jersey has a proud history of innovation, and today's announcement regarding Hoboken's expanded access to 5G is indicative of the upward trajectory of our state," said Governor Phil Murphy. "The expansion announced today is further evidence that we are committed to being one of the most connected states in the nation."

"It is exciting news that Hoboken is the first city in New Jersey and one of the first in the nation with Verizon 5G Ultra Wideband service," said Tom Bracken, president, and CEO of the New Jersey Chamber of Commerce.

"Nothing is more critical to business and to an innovation economy than high-speed, high-capacity, and reliable communications. Verizon's new generation of communications capabilities is exactly what New Jersey needs to be competitive and to attract and retain businesses."

5G Ultra Wideband service will be concentrated on 5th Street between Marshall Drive and Garden St., between the 1st and 16th streets of Willow Avenue, and on Adams St. between 2nd and 7th streets. It will also cover other places, around landmarks such as Church Square Park, Hoboken University Medical Center, Mama Johnson Field, and Hoboken Public Library. Detailed coverage maps are available since December 20.

While moving outside Verizon's 5G Ultra Wideband coverage area, customer's 5G-enabled devices get automatically transitioned to Verizon's 4G LTE network. Currently, Verizon offers seven 5G-enabled devices, the company added.
