Communications giant Verizon last week launched 5G for Business Internet in 21 new markets, targeting SMBs and enterprises alike.\n\n5G resources\n\nWhat is 5G?

Upload speeds are slower. Verizon is also offering a 10-year price lock for new customers with no long-term contract required.\n\u201cAs 5G Business Internet scales into new cities, businesses of all sizes can gain access to the superfast speeds, low latency and next-gen applications enabled by 5G Ultra-Wideband, with no throttling or data limits,\u201d Tami Erwin, CEO of Verizon Business, said in a statement.\n\u201cWe\u2019ll continue to expand the 5G Business Internet footprint and bring the competitive pricing, capability, and flexibility of our full suite of products and services to more and more businesses all over the country.\u201d\nThe service was previously launched in parts of Chicago, Houston and Los Angeles. Verizon started rolling out 5G services last year using lower spectrum bands. According to a study by IHS Markit\u2019s RootMetrics, Verizon offers speeds similar to those of T-Mobile but behind AT&T.\nThe newly announced Verizon 5G markets include parts of Anaheim, Sacramento, San Diego, San Francisco, and San Jose, all in California; Cincinnati and Cleveland in Ohio; Minneapolis and St. Paul in Minnesota; St. Louis and Kansas City in Missouri; Atlanta, Georgia; Dallas, Texas; Denver, Colorado; DetroitMichigan; Indianapolis, Indiana; Las Vegas, Nevada; Miami, Florida; Phoenix, Arizona; and Salt Lake City, Utah. Parts of Riverside-Corona, California, which adjoins Anaheim, will become available on April 22.\nCustomers who buy the service get a 5G receiver mounted on the roof or side of the building by Verizon, which requires the permission of the building\u2019s owner. The service also requires a router that customers can buy from Verizon and have the provider install it or, if they have one that meets Verizon\u2019s specifications, can use their own.\nEarlier this month, Verizon and Amazon Web Services announced a 5G partnership to give enterprises a low-latency edge option with local, hybrid-cloud access to AWS software.
