Verizon Aggressive On The 5G Front

So far, Verizon is the only carrier that appears to be ignoring the 2020 timeline for the next cellular technology rollout. The carrier claims it is planning a commercial launch of 5G as early as 2017.

The Basking Ridge, N.J.-based carrier has already begun trialing 5G in the U.S., the company said at Mobile World Congress. Verizon said its tests are showing that 5G is 30 to 50 times faster than the current U.S. 4G network.

At Mobile World Congress, Verizon also said that it will take advantage of the additional spectrum it picked up from its acquisition of XO Communications to help with its 5G tests.

Verizon plans on partnering with several other providers for its foray into 5G, including networking and communications services provider Alcatel-Lucent, networking vendor Cisco Systems, mobile technology provider Qualcomm, and wireless equipment makers Ericsson, Nokia Networks and Samsung.
