Verizon 5G millimeter wave system will face perhaps its main coverage evaluation yet when it starts imparts New York City on September 26th. Today the carrier declared that 5G service will reach areas of uptown, midtown, and downtown Manhattan, together with select parts of Brooklyn, the Bronx, and Queens.

However, as with its other 5G markets, Verizon ist yet providing a coverage map that outlines exactly where customers will be able to receive its incredibly speedy mm Wave rates. Rival carrier T-Mobile has relentlessly mocked Verizon over this, most recently launching a VerHIDEzo ad campaign (complete with a Square spacer-made site ) that blasts its rival for a deficiency of transparency. Is about underscoring just how crazy it’s to ask customers to pay more and then figure where they can use the item there paying more for T-Mobile CTO Neville Ray wrote in a blog post. (Some of Verizon unlimited data plans are now waiving the $10 5G fee.)
