Verizon 5G: First and goal

Verizon 5G: First and goal

By Cotton Mayer


There’s been a lot of talk about the launch of a new 5G network in the U.S. The fifth generation (5G) is the next generation of digital cellular network technology and it promises faster and more efficient performance on our essential smartphones and mobile devices.

Verizon is, of course, at the forefront of 5G deployment, starting in most major U.S. metropolitan areas. Verizon already has the nation’s largest and most reliable 4G LTE network and they look to establish the same with 5G.


At the start of the 2019 NFL football season, Verizon made a memorable opening drive by launching 5G in NFL stadiums across the nation, most notably New York, Chicago, Miami, Houston and our hometown Seattle, WA.


“We expect the impact on the sports entertainment industry to be massive,” said Verizon CEO Hans Vestberg in this CNET article. “It promises to revolutionize the entire game-day experience for fans.”


As the NFL season plays on and 5G continues to expand, NPP applauds the accomplishments of our longtime partner Verizon. For years, NPP members have received a corporate discount through Verizon that provides business members of all sizes 22% off their Verizon monthly access fees. Once a business has the Verizon NPP discount, they can even share our Verizon deal for employees, so the whole team can score!


2019 is truly the kickoff of a new age in cellular network technology. The first database tracking worldwide 5G device launches was released in March and most major U.S. cities have begun 5G usage as the clock ticks down on 2019. You can learn more about 5G on the Verizon 5G network FAQ page.
