Its “5G Ultra Wideband” is an incredibly fast network with lighting quick downloads and uploads and very low latency.Unfortunately its signal does not travel as far as other carriers and their network. It can also be impacted by buildings and obstacles and often relies on line of sight with a cell. The reason that Verizon’s network differs is because of the mmWave-based technology used.In the future Verizon will turn to a technology called dynamic spectrum sharing (DSS) that lets it share spectrum between 4G and 5G.5G PhonesVerizon has a rapidly growing list of phones designed to support its 5G network. Some of the devices are exclusive to Verizon, including the Motorola Edge Plus.Models which are available through other carriers are sometimes more expensive through Verizon. This is because of the hardware maker having to include support for the mmWave bands. Examples include the LG Velvet and OnePlus 8 which are about $100 more than at other service providers.Smartphone SelectionVerizon has one of the widest selections of smartphones with models from entry-level devices aimed at first-time users all the way up to flagships. It also has a couple of phones that fold or have unique designs.
