The digital world promises consumers a better, more connected life, and Verizon Wireless are the ones delivering it. They make it possible for people to stay in touch and businesses to connect with their customers. They’re also bringing technology and hands-on learning opportunities directly to kids who need it most. The main goal – to inspire tomorrow’s creators to use technology to build brighter futures for themselves, their families and the world.
As our customers add more devices and find more ways to use them, Verizon Wireless are constantly increasing the density of their network. In 2015, more than $11 billion was invested to meet today’s surging demand for wireless data and video, but also to get the network ready for 5G wireless technology. The Verizon Wireless commitment to network excellence has kept us them the top of RootMetrics® U.S. National RootScore® report rankings of wireless carriers in overall, reliability, data and call performance for six straight reports and speed for five straight reports.
Verizon began building and testing 4G LTE in 2008 and commercially launched the nation’s first 4G LTE network in December 2010. Today, more than 98 percent of the U.S. population has access to 4G LTE and 90 percent of Verizon Wireless data traffic is carried over the network.
5G will open up a huge new set of products and mobile trends for Verizon Wireless customers. A few of the benefits are high-speed data – connection speeds that are 30 to 50 times faster than 4G – responsiveness and unparalleled video quality. We’re working with our 5G Technology Forum partners to accelerate 5G for customers. 5G will be the foundation for creating more internet-connected devices, making cities smarter, energy grids more efficient, and transportation safer.
