Check for 5G Service in Your Area With Verizon’s New Coverage Maps


Should you buy a 5G smartphone? Youprobablydon’t need one right nowunless the price is right and—if you’re a Verizon user, at least—your living or working space falls within its 5G territory, which you can now check thanks to the company’s just-released 5G coverage maps. If either (or both) do, the decision gets a little trickier.

To access Verizon’s new maps, simple head on over to itsportal page. No, it doesn’t have coverage maps for 5G for the entire United States, because it doesn’t have 5G coverage across the nation. What did you think this was? 4G?Pffft.

Instead, click on one of the following cities to see what 5G coverage looks like around the area:

  • Atlanta
  • Boise
  • Boston
  • Chicago
  • Dallas
  • Denver
  • Detroit
  • Houston 
  • Indianapolis
  • Minneapolis
  • New York City
  • Omaha
  • Panama City
  • Phoenix
  • Providence
  • Sioux Falls
  • St. Paul
  • Washington D.C.

If your particular city isn’t on that list, and you don’t see it on this subsequent list of cities that should be getting Verizon’s 5G service soon, then you definitely don’t need to purchase a 5G phone right now—at least, not if there’s an identical, cheaper alternative that doesn’t support 5G.

  • Cincinnati
  • Charlotte
  • Cleveland
  • Columbus
  • Des Moines
  • Kansas City
  • Little Rock
  • Memphis
  • Salt Lake City
  • San Diego

Of course, if you’re looking to buy a 5G device, your best bet is to borrow a friend’s 5G-friendly phone for an hour or so—or take them on a coffee date—and see how the connection quality is around the places you frequent. Maps are helpful and all, but I’d recommend giving Verizon’s 5G coveragea quick test, if possible, before you plunk down some cash on a new 5G device (and its slightly more expensive5G plan).

SprintandT-Mobilealso have their own 5G coverage maps, in case you’re investigating other carriers as part of your next bi
