The endless desire of people to achieve higher speeds in mobile connectivity has fuelled the introduction of the 5G network by expanding the usage of spectrum resources for wider bandwidths. Ensuring a powerful performance to provide the next-gen experience, 5G is causing enormous waves in the world of technology. Besides high speed, 5G is far more reliable than 4G, has minimal latency, and drives global growth. The world of 5G is ever-expanding, as evident from the Verizon C band that can support high-speed internet and provides more choices for consumers who expect a high-performing internet at home and work.
With coverage of more than 100 million people, the ultra-wide C-band 5G offered by Verizon is a big deal indeed. However, you need a compatible device to use the C-Band 5G. Since only a few devices are ready to support the new technology, it will take some time before the technology becomes easily accessible to the masses.
What is the Verizon C Band?
Verizon’s 5G Ultra wide Network relies heavily on the C-band, a spectrum in the mid-band range that assures a never-before achieved level of coverage and performance in mobile connectivity. Above all, it promises to make 5G accessible to more people. But before you jump up with joy at the prospect of using C-Band powered 5G, you must remember that to access the technology, Verizon 5G phones are necessary. No, Verizon does not make mobile phones, but your smartphone must be compatible with the technology used by Verizon. It means you will need Verizon 5G capable phones to fulfill your dream of enjoying high-speed internet anywhere, office or home.
A Middle-Distance Runner
5G has three key spectrum ranges – the low-band, the mid-band to which the C-band belongs, and the high-band that includes the mmWave spectrum or the millimeter-wave. C-Band that lies in the middle of the spectrum is like a middle-distance runner that goes a longer distance than a marathoner, and its coverage is wider than a sprinter. C-band holds high hopes for Verizon in attaining impressively high speeds, which could be as high as a gigabit at the launch time.
Which Phones are Suitable for C-Band?
When making a list of 5g Verizon phones, one aspect that should catch your eye is that they have C-Band hardware and C-Band software, making them suitable devices to support the technology. Until now, some phone models of Apple, like the iPhone 12 and 13 series, iPhone SE (2022), and 5G models of iPad, are ready-to-use devices for C-Band. Phones of other brands like LG Wing 5G, Google Pixel 6 series, Motorola Moto G Stylus 5G, and Motorola Edge+ are also among the Verizon 5G capable phones.
Samsung has the maximum number of 5G C-band-ready phones like Galaxy A42, A52 5G (unlocked), A53, Galaxy Z flip3, and Z Fold3. Among the tabs are Galaxy Tab S7 FE 5G, S8+, S21 series, S21 FE, and S22 series.
TCL 30V, One Plus10 Pro (unlocked), and Orbit Speed hotspot are the other phones for the Verizon C band.
