The City of Arlington is the third city in the State of Texas where VZW 5G Ultra Wideband is available, according to Verizon Wireless.

The 5G Ultra Wideband network uses the high-band, ultra-wide millimeter wave spectrum to deliver a better experience for smartphone users and other 5G enabled device users. Ultrafast speeds and reduced lag time can provide smartphones with new capabilities for activities like multi-player gaming on the go, streaming 4K movies and video chatting in HD, according to the company.

Houston and Dallas are the only other Texas cities where VZW has officially announced this service.

As part of the Arlington City Council priority to Put Technology to Work, the City has been working with Verizon over the past couple years to bring the next generation of wireless service and high-speed internet access to Arlington’s
homes, schools and businesses.
