Guess what? The amazing Verizon calls Super Bowl LIV the first Super Bowl 5G, as it will present its next-generation wireless service at the great Miami game on Sunday. Exciting isn’t it? the operative says that this will be the first time that their wireless clients will be able to access their 5G mobile network in the event.
While the Verizon 5G mobile network had not even been launched for commercial use a year ago. The company publicly launched its 5G mobile network in April 2019 once the first two 5G phones were available. The situation was similar to its competitors. While AT&T launched its 5G mobile network at the end of 2018, its customers did not have access to 5G phones until later in 2019. T-Mobile and Sprint also started implementing 5G later in 2019.
In the meantime, the operators have been challenging to implement their networks and promoting all the interesting things that the newest technology will allow their customers to do.
As, the AT&T, T-Mobile, and Sprint will also have some 5G capabilities in the Super Bowl. But Verizon has been at the forefront of using the very high-frequency spectrum known as the millimeter wave spectrum mmWave for its service. This high-frequency spectrum is largely what is behind the super-fast speeds and ultra-low latency promised by 5G.
Furthermore, the 5G is not only about 100 times faster than 4G, but also has much lower latency than 4G, which makes new networks more responsive. This will allow a lot of new applications in areas such as VR, AR, and autonomous cars. Verizon, which now offers 5G in parts of 34 U.S. cities. In the US, you are using the Super Bowl to showcase these new capabilities and highlight how some of these features are simply not possible on 4G LTE networks.
But it is still early for technology. The four main wireless operators in the US UU. They are still deploying their networks. And phone manufacturers are still releasing new devices. Verizon currently supports seven 5G devices but plans to launch 20 new 5G devices by 2020. For next year, there are likely to be more uses for technology in the Super Bowl. Let’s see what’s in the box for next year’s Super Bowl.
