What Verizon Has to Build in the Area Before 5G Coverage

Don't Miss

Additional telephone-type poles will be soon be added throughout Panama City.

Representatives with Verizon, along with Congressman Neal Dunn, toured Panama City on Friday to show the representative how the company will implement 5G coverage in the area.

In order to have the new technology, Verizon will be installing poles in the area. 

Verizon representatives say even with the addition residents shouldn’t notice.

Andrea Caldini, Vice President of East Territory Network said, “the way that we have them designed is very elegant. You would drive by it, you wouldn’t notice a different pole and you wouldn’t necessarily notice the equipment that’s riding on it.”

The 5G coverage will launch on April 11th in Chicago and Minneapolis but there is not a date set for when it will come to Panama City.
