According to foreign media reports, 5g, which has attracted a lot of attention, has been put into commercial use last year. South Korea, the United States, the United Kingdom, Spain and other countries have launched 5g commercial services, and last year was also known as the first year of 5g commercial use.
However, due to the fact that 5g business is just in its infancy and limited by infrastructure such as base stations, the coverage of the network is still limited at present. Operators in most countries have not yet achieved 5g signal coverage, but there are also operators trying to launch national 5g business services. Verizon is one of them.
According to foreign media reports, Verizon plans to launch a nationwide 5g wireless service in the United States later this year, so as to synchronize with Apple's new iPhone launched this fall, and buyers of the new iPhone can use 5g network.
Apple failed to launch the 5G iPhone last year for reasons such as chips, but after negotiating with Qualcomm and reaching years of chip supply and patent agreements, Apple also has no chip block in launching the 5G smartphone, and analysts and research generally expect Apple to launch four iPhones at a time this fall, all in support of the 5G.
Considering that Apple currently has a huge iPhone user base in the world, many users will choose to upgrade after the launch of 5g iPhone. If Verizon launches the national 5g commercial service in the United States at the same time as reported by foreign media, it will also attract a large number of users to use their 5g service.
However, as for the launch time of national 5g business services in the United States, Verizon has not yet given a clear time. During Thursday's investor presentation meeting, Ronan Dunne, head of Verizon's consumer business unit, revealed that the company had no clear time for a nationwide 5g business service, but said that they would be choosing the right business opportunity to launch this year.
Among other U.S. carriers, T-Mobile launched a low-frequency 5G commercial service last year and is planning to launch a nationwide service, AT
Verizon has launched a small-scale high-frequency, millimeter wave 5g business service in 30 cities in the United States, with executives saying they plan to expand to 60 cities by the end of the year.
