Verizon Launches 5G in Fifth US City, St. Paul

Verizon launches exclusive Inseego 5G MiFi M1000 nationwide; turns on 5G Ultra Wideband network in St. Paul

  • Inseego MiFi is the first 5G hotspot and fifth 5G-enabled device on Verizon’s 5G network
  • St. Paul, MN joins Chicago, Denver, Minneapolis and Providence as a Verizon 5G mobility city

Today, Verizon debuted its fifth 5G-enabled device with the launch of the Inseego MiFi® M1000. When connected to Verizon’s 5G Ultra Wideband network, the device, exclusively available to Verizon customers, provides the large bandwidth and fast download speeds required for applications like 4K/8K video streaming, virtual reality and augmented reality (VR/AR), mobile workforce, industrial IoT and more. Verizon also launched 5G Ultra Wideband mobility service in St. Paul, Minnesota, joining Denver, Chicago, Minneapolis and Providence as the fifth of more than 30 Verizon 5G mobility cities Verizon plans to launch in 2019.

“The Inseego MiFi is our first business-ready 5G device, combining bandwidth and speed customers expect from 5G, with enterprise-grade security businesses require,” said Tami Erwin, executive vice president and group CEO for Verizon Business. “Verizon continues to lead in 5G, adding to our coverage area with St. Paul and launching the Inseego 5G hotspot, our fifth 5G enabled device.”

Tapping into the power of Verizon’s 5G Ultra Wideband network, the 5G MiFi M1000 can allow first responders to rapidly set up mobile command centers with blazing-fast data speeds supporting powerful new public safety applications like object detection, geospatial visualization and more. Verizon 5G Ultra Wideband service and the Inseego MiFi 5G can also support telemedicine by enabling real-time interaction between healthcare providers and patients for remote consultations or physical therapy sessions using VR headsets and gloves. Additionally, advancements in real-time interactions for robotics and cloud-based artificial intelligence can come to life. When tethered to a 5G MiFi M1000 on Verizon’s 5G Ultra Wideband network a robot can interact with humans (or with other machines) with near real-time reaction speed.

Coverage Area Details

In St. Paul, Verizon consumer and business customers will see 5G Ultra Wideband service in parts of Downtown, Lowertown and West Seventh neighborhoods around such landmarks as the Minnesota Children’s Museum, the Minnesota Museum of American Art, the Fitzgerald Theater, Cathedral Hill Park and the Alexander Ramsey House.

When customers move outside Verizon’s 5G Ultra Wideband coverage area, the 5G-enabled devices, including the mobile hotspot, hand the signal to Verizon’s 4G LTE network, the network more people rely on.

Connect at 5G speeds

Exclusively leveraging Verizon’s 5G Ultra Wideband service, the 5G MiFi M1000 provides the speed and throughput needed for a world of new data-hungry applications, from next-gen mobile offices and industrial IoT to immersive entertainment.

“We’re thrilled to introduce Verizon’s first commercial 5G mobile hotspot engineered specifically for 5G data connectivity in partnership with Verizon,” said Dan Mondor, Chairman and CEO of Inseego. “By delivering massive amounts of data at breakthrough speeds, 5G will enable many transformative applications that once seemed impossible. The new MiFi M1000 makes those ‘use cases’ a reality by connecting data-hungry users to incredible speeds, with enterprise-grade security.”
