Two new 5G Internet cities for individuals and businesses
We talked about the importance of 5G home internet and 5G business internet to the success of our business, and that’s why we’re proud to welcome Dayton, Ohio and Jacksonville, Florida to the 5G family. . Consumers and corporate clients in parts of these cities can register today. Our 5G network continues to grow every day, so follow Up To Speed for more updates.

Women in Business Final
Verizon Business CEO Tami Erwin participated in a amazing chat with other women from CVS, Microsoft and Chipotle to close the Women in Business of the Year series. They discussed the real challenges facing women today and how organizations and individuals play a role in uplifting people.
WAN comes to NaaS
We are enhancing our network-as-a-service digitization strategy with the recent addition of Cisco-managed SD WAN services, including support for 5G connectivity. With these new solutions, our customers can take advantage of Verizon’s 4G and 5G networks, giving them the ability to adapt, adopt the latest technologies and remain agile to meet evolving customer demands.
THOR is becoming popular.
Our very own THOR, the fast-response command center, landed on Popular Science’s Best of What’s New Award list. Every year since 1988, the editors of Popular Science have screened thousands of products for the best innovations and THOR was selected as one of 10 winners in the “Safety” category. It’s another example of how we are always innovating and always there for customers, communities and first responders when they need us most.
