How was it with the use of the new 5G phone Verizon on its one day 5G network? Much like using 4G. In fact, in some cases, it did not seem a bit different. This morning, at about 10 am, I flew through the frosted cold coffee that was desperately squeezed in my hand – to the Verizon Showcase at Chic Amusing Miracle to checkwhich was officially launched in Chicago and Minneapolis Wednesday. I spent the day around the city center to increase the speed of the Verizon mmWave 5G test on with its attachment, officially the first 5G Verizon phone.
t good. I went to four 5G-ready seats across the downtown area, hoping to be blown away. A couple of times, I saw the theoretical boot kiss speed of 600 megabits per second, in the Speedtest.net application. But in real downloads it was not taken, the Moto Z3 blinked between 5G and 4G as the flames and the actual downloads took the same time associated with 5G, as it was when I took the Moto Mod.
I was expecting some unevenness, some disorderly behavior, even ̵
Verizon jumped the pistol by turning onearlier than its target on April 11, underscoring its conviction that acting quickly and aggressively at 5G would give its network, already the largest in the United States, the preference of the first propeller. 5G, the next-generation wireless technology, is widely used as a means for lagging data connections, fast phone download speeds. 5G is positioned for the revolution in the industry, increases the speed of data transfer from 10 to 100 times, and such as remote surgery and intelligent traffic lights that talk to each other to ensure smooth movement.
It's not really 5G that we'll see today and it should not be. Carriers like Verizon and AT & T have long talked about an expanded deployment plan, starting with areas of several major cities, and then expanding them to other cities – 30 – on Verizon's 2019 roadmap. 4G initially, but not surprisingly quickly gaining speed as carriers build their 5G networks over time.
"These crazy speeds you are about to see now will be much better this year," Mike Haberman, vice president of network engineering at Verizon, told me in the morning. – It's just the beginning.
For this, Haberman refers to the typical network speeds I have to see today using 5G Verizon, which the network provider calls the 5G Ultra Wideband. Verizon expects "a typical 450 Mbps speed, with a peak speed of almost 1 Gbit / s and a delay of less than 30 milliseconds."
We should also talk about this Moto Z3 for a moment. These are mid-range devices that are capable of redirecting the Verizon 5G network through a powerful antenna and an internal modem inside the 5G Moto Mod, which is sold separately. The Z3 is currently sold at $ 240 (usually $ 480); Moto Mod is also sold at $ 200 (usually $ 350), and you must have Z3 on your account to buy it. Verizon 5G is a premium of $ 10 under the regular plan, but the first three months are free.
Motorola and Verizon have a special (contractual) relationship, but after ten years when we look at the first 5G phone, Moto Z3 with the 5G Moto Mod will not go down in history as Motorola's achievement.
But this will go as the first real, realistic look at our inevitable future of 5G.
The word about 5G before we start
5G is not one. There are several approaches. Sub-6 Millimeter waves (mmWave). AT & T was even charged with (and sued) "". With this new world of 5G comes the space of a new jargon.
For example, Verizon's 5G network uses 28 GHz and 39 GHz bands for mmWave to bring the 1 GHz band on an average national level. If this does not mean much to you, you may be able to get the actual.
This is a developing story. Keep an eye on updates on our 5G tests during the day.
