    Verizon Rolls Out Low Band 5G Nationwide

    https://www.cnet.com/news/verizon-la...for-iphone-12/

    I just saw Verizon make the announcement on the Apple event.

    Verizon's 5G nationwide network finally makes its appearance -- finally putting it on par with rivals T-Mobile and AT&T. On Tuesday, Verizon CEO Hans Vestberg appeared in Apple's virtual iPhone 12 event to announce that the country's largest wireless carrier now has a low-band 5G network, which offers dramatically more coverage -- at lower speeds -- than the previous flavor of its super-fast 5G.

    Verizon will cover 200 million people with low-band 5G, meeting the Federal Communications Commission's definition of a nationwide network, though much of the new network will be initially be centered around major cities. T-Mobile, the second-largest carrier, launched its nationwide network last December and has since expanded to cover 250 million people with low-band 5G. AT&T hit the nationwide mark over the summer and covers 205 million people with its low-band 5G offering.......................................... .....

    I'm reading claims this will only be N5 at first.
    That means some of Verizon's early 5G devices will be left out, along with a few Open Market models (OnePlus 8 series).

    n2 in some areas where they donít have band 5


    for which low-band spectrum Verizon is using for DSS, itís usually 850 MHz, but in some markets where thatís not available, it will use PCS or AWS spectrum.

    Yes I know I was answering their question with a question so they can figure it out themselves. As an aside it seem Release 167 form 3dppp is being delayed so n13 will delayed from the end of 2021 to Spring or Summer 2022

    I wonder whether there will ever be an n13 band for Verizon to use their original 700 MHz band.

    Band n13 is in Release 17 which was scheduled for Sept 2021 which means an actual December 2021 timeline at the earliest for it to be used. But now it's going to be delayed. No one knows how long yet but could be 3-9 months. So were looking at spring/summer 2022 possibly fall 2022 at the earliest

    I wonder if the nationwide 5g network will be included in non-unlimited plans? I really don't want to move to an unlimited plan to get access to this.

    All plans get access to the "nationwide" 5G network. Honestly it's not going to be any faster than 4G

    Iím curious on whatís Verizonís requirements are for the city to be listed as a mmWave city. I know it is in multiple places here in Pittsburgh PA but itís not listed as a mmWave city on Verizonís website.

    I think we will be on that list. I think we are gonna be last because of our local government. The permitting process is a **** show. Iíve watched some of the commission meetings about new small cells and macros and they somehow expect Verizonís new infrastructure to be invisible meanwhile AT&T existing macros in some parts of the city are not even painted to match the building they are on. The new Southside macro on East Carson and the new macro that was suppose to go on top of the PNC Bank office complex on Ross street are being forced to go back to the drawing board. Itís crazy to because Verizonís designs I thought camouflaged the antennas and equipment very well. Itís with out a doubt why AT&T is not bringing 5g + to Pittsburgh. To much regulation in the current administration of the city. Not being political but itís the truth.

    Can someone please explain to this novice the different 5G entities?
    I know at least one of them won't travel more than 10 feet if your hand blocks the signal. Seems useless.
    UWB, mmWave, sub6, low band, etc, etc.
    Thanks.
