on Tuesday, Verizon has launched its nationwide 5G network. The nation’s largest airline is already powered by its fast Ultra Wideband service on the high-band MM wave spectrum. The problem with MmWave is that it does not travel very far and cannot penetrate well into those structures. But what they can do is give faster download data speed. Meanwhile, T-Mobile and AT&T have been able to deliver 5G from beach to beach. For example, the T-Mobile 600MHz signal travels long distances but does not offer mmWave data speeds.
How Verizon customers know if their iPhone is connected to a low band or 5G
Verizon has moved to Dynamic Spectroscopy Sharing (DSS) to enhance the 5G network from coast to coast, allowing it to offer low band 5G service nationwide. So when a customer gets its premium Ultra Wideband signal in the 28 GHz or 39 GHz band, they can access the zippy 5G service at higher capacity and with less delay. If they can’t connect to a mmWave signal (currently available in 55 cities and should be 60 by the end of this year), DSS technology will move connectivity to low band 5G in the 850MHz band. If that connection does not match, the phone will work with 4G LTE. Devices for DSS are manufactured by Ericsson, Nokia and Samsung.
Mark Lowenstein, managing director of the mobile ecosystem, says: “The iPhone 12 will sing when in good MM wave coverage, but we estimate that this will be a small part of the current human population. For everyone in the US to think about using their iPhone RIGHT NOW (not over Wi-Fi), about 1% of those sessions get the best 5G speeds (1 GB or better). Lowenstein said he expects speed at DSS locations in Verizon. To get a 4G + experience; In other words, it’s faster than LTE, but not as fast as T-Mobile’s 2.5 GHz mid-band service or T-Mobile’s combined 600MHz and 2.5GHz service. As part of the merger between the two, T-Mobile acquired the 2.5GHz spectrum from Sprint.
All four Apple iPhone 12 models in the US are compatible with sub-6-GHz 5G bands and the faster mmWave spectrum. So if you have an iPhone 12 model in Verizon, is there a way to decide which 5G band you belong to? Thanks to new commercials starring Chris Rock, the comedian who rolled out Verizon yesterday, every time an iPhone 12 series phone joins Verizon’s ultraviolet band, you’ve found yourself stuck vertically in the article in the status bar. On the other hand, if you are on Verizon’s nationwide DSS 5G network, you will only see the 5G logo.
Verizon is showcasing two different logos so that its customers will not be confused between low-band 5G and high-band. Verizon is reported to offer 5G data speeds of up to 4Gbps, thanks to a small trick known as a combination of eight channels.
Hars Westberg, CEO of Verizon, appeared at Apple’s “Hi, Speed” event Apple CEO Tim Cook to maintain social distance. Third-party companies rank Verizon’s 4G LTE network faster than some rivals’ 5G networks, said Heidi Hammer, VP’s technology division at Verizon. Speaking about the DSS-powered 5G low-band service, the executive says Verizon has the potential to handle all new iPhone models that will soon be added to its network.
Customers switching to Verizon are eligible to receive a free iPhone 12 under certain conditions. Existing customers can pay as little as $ 15 per month for the iPhone 12 using a device payment plan and an unlimited plan of choice.
