Verizon launched its ‘5G Nationwide’ community protection for many postpaid prospects in October alongside the launch of Apple’s newest flagship smartphones. Now, Verizon has now confirmed to 9to5Mac that its 5G Nationwide community is additionally available to be used with 5G telephones, together with iPhone 12 and 12 Pro, on the corporate’s personal prepaid service…
The identical sub-6 GHz community that these on Verizon’s postpaid plans take pleasure in is now available for these on prepaid. It’s presumably suitable at the least with the 5G telephones that Verizon at present sells by way of its prepaid website, which embody the iPhone 12 sequence and Galaxy S20 FE 5G. We’re at present seeing it stay on an iPhone 12 Pro.
5G is basically two completely different applied sciences, and whereas it appears the swap has been flipped on the slower sub-6 GHz type (5G Nationwide), Verizon says that its Ultra Wideband choices are “coming to Prepaid in early 2021,” at the least in response to verbiage on the corporate’s prepaid web site.
While it’s at all times welcome to get entry to the newest applied sciences, early checks performed this week present that Verizon’s 5G Nationwide community isn’t really sooner than LTE in some locations. In my space, nevertheless, I’ve discovered Verizon’s 5G Nationwide community to be considerably sooner than LTE.
Competing networks, like T-Mobile and AT&T, have supplied sub-6 5G service for a number of months now on their very own equivalents to Verizon’s 5G Nationwide. Popular MVNO (cell digital community operator) Visible, which runs on Verizon’s community, lately launched its sub-6 5G on iPhone 12, and that system is the one one supported on that community thus far.
