DC, Atlanta, Denver Getting C Band 5G This Year



Verizon has reached a deal to deploy 5G in prime C Band radio frequencies in three key markets — Washington, DC / Baltimore, Atlanta, and Denver — this year, at least a year ahead of the original schedule set by the FCC. That schedule was designed to allow satellite companies to vacate the band without disrupting service for their customers. This would take longer in cities with ground stations that use the C Band to command existing satellites in orbit. That’s why those three markets were completely excluded from the initial launch of C Band, instead pushed to the final clearing date of December 2023. But Verizon has now reached an agreement with the satellite companies on how to deploy 5G in those markets this year without interfering with satellite operations. As a result, Verizon will be able to offer faster mid-band 5G service in all major US cities by the end of the year.
