Do more with your home Internet
Gone are the days of logging on to simply check a few emails or look up some basic information on the web. In fact, I can’t remember the last time our home Internet was actually used for just that. Maybe when I was in college in 1995 using dial-up.
The reality is, your home Internet is used for everything from streaming movies to gaming to connecting smart home tech. With 5G, you’ll have plenty of bandwidth for all of your connected devices. 5G is what every home needs. And 5G isn’t just an option for home Internet with Verizon Wireless 5G Ultra Wideband.
What is 5G?
But what is 5G? We often hear about 5G, but do you actually know what 5G is or what 5G means? 5G is the fifth generation of wireless technology. As a consumer, it essentially means having the fastest network you can have. 5G is quicker downloads and superior network reliability–things that are important to families and small business owners.
In our home, with four kids and two parents who work from home, fast Internet is critical for day-to-day functions. Between smart home appliances, gaming devices, and computers for work and school, we’re constantly tapping our network’s capability. On the go, our wireless use is also heavy. I travel for work, so I’m constantly on my phone; I’m also often using my phone as a mobile hotspot and tethering my computer through my phone for Internet access.
5G gives gamers super-low lag times, making gaming virtually seamless and a much better virtual experience. It’s better for streaming movies, too, with fewer video freezes and interruptions. And we all know how much time teens and tweens spend streaming video.
Why Ultra Wide Band is the Best 5G
Today, we rely heavily on the Internet for everything. Smart home connectivity, artificial intelligence, robotics, virtual reality, augmented, wearables, the Internet of Things (IoT), and immersive education all run on the network technology, and when you want the best wireless possible that means 5G.
Verizon’s 5G Ultra Wideband network features equipment and hardware that is connected to the network that is strictly 5G radio technology and nothing older. These innovations will keep the promise of a network that provides higher technology standards.
