    Verizon and Samsung have started testing 5G wireless access in "real-world" conditions around Verizon's HQ, including indoors and in moving vehicles. Last September, Big Red said that it would start field testing 5G this year, and would have some level of commercial deployment up and running in 2017.

    In addition to the unique field trials being conducted, the following elements are being assessed across all sites:
    • Antenna innovation with millimeter and centimeter wave spectrum using various deployment conditions
    • Beamforming, beam tracking, massive MIMO (multiple input, multiple output), and wideband spectrum (200 MHz – 1 GHz swaths)
    • Deployment flexibility and antenna form factors including size with mmWave antennas
    Verizon is committed to being the network leader and is driving 5G innovation. The 5G technology being developed now is the foundation of our future connectivity, and the center of our digital world. Multiple gigabits per second speeds and single-millisecond latency will deliver the benefits of fiber to wireless. In addition, 5G will have the ability to handle exponentially more connected devices and accommodate the ever growing Internet.
