Verizon 5G network coverage map: which cities are covered?
Latest update: September 27th, 2019. Verizon has lit up 5G in New York City and Washington DC!

Verizon was one of the first US carriers to launch a 5G network, but it's coverage is limited to select spots in a handful of cities.

Still, Verizon is building out support for the network in more than a dozen markets and should light them up by the end of 2019.

The carriers refers to its network as 5G Ultra Wideband Mobile and at the moment it is built on top of what is called millimeter wave (mmWave) technology, which means that it uses extremely high-frequency bands to deliver incredible speeds, but at the cost of coverage as that high-frequency signal cannot travel far, nor can it penetrate walls and enter buildings.

Still, if you are among the lucky few who are covered by the new network, you will experience extremely fast download speeds and reduced latency on your device.

Speaking of devices, there are a few phones that support 5G on Verizon now: the Galaxy Note 10+ 5G, the Galaxy S10+ 5G, the LG V50 ThinQ 5G, as well as the Moto Z4 with a 5G Moto Mod.

All of these are powerful phones with flagship-grade hardware that will serve you well.

a full view of the US and it would look really sad - little dots. it would have to be a zoomed in map of the cities covered so it would have to be a collage or individual pix.

I see a bunch of no name cities in that list and no mention of Philly.. that's odd.

Yeah, how'd they forget about the center of the universe when they were planning the coverage roll-out?
