Verizon’s 5G Ultra Wideband enables people to do things on their mobile device that many could only do before when connected to their home internet service. This includes everything from downloading huge documents and streaming movies in HD audio and video, to playing console quality games and conducting video chats, video conferencing and FaceTime calls with clear sound and video.
Verizon’s first 5G Ultra Wideband cell sites in each of these communities are now live, with even more coverage on the horizon. In the coming months, Verizon will deploy 5G Ultra Wideband service to downtown Iowa City, the University of Iowa campus, the Cedar Rapids metropolitan area including the Rockwell Collins campus, downtown Ames and Iowa State University campus.
“We’re thrilled Verizon is expanding its services in Iowa, bringing enhanced connectivity to multiple cities across our great state,” said Rep. Bobby Kaufmann (R-Wilton) Chair, House Ways & Means Committee. “Verizon’s 5G Ultra Wideband service will bring new benefits and possibilities to residents and visitors in Iowa, and I’m happy to see their continued support of our citizens and investment in our communities.”

“Verizon is widely known for having the most reliable 5G network experience, and it’s exciting to see the positive impact our work has had in Iowa,” said Dean Brauer, Vice President of Engineering and Operations for Verizon. “Our network engineers work tirelessly to provide unmatched connectivity to our customers across Ames, Cedar Rapids, Iowa City and beyond, and we will not slow down.”
Network enhancements in Iowa
These deployments use Verizon’s recently acquired C-band spectrum. Verizon will deploy 5G Ultra Wideband using 100 MHz of C-Band spectrum in multiple Iowa markets, and will add even more bandwidth once all of its licensed spectrum is made available. This additional bandwidth, which will be available at the end of this year, will provide exceptional speed and capacity.
Lastly, the addition of 5G service in Iowa will result in exponential increases in data carried into and out of the cell sites serving the community, which requires upgraded fiber optic cable links. Verizon has increased the capacity on the fiber connections in many cell sites so they can carry 10 times the amount of data.
