Engage with our 5G Labs

At Verizon’s 5G Labs we work with local innovators to grow the 5G ecosystem. Together, we explore the boundaries of 5G network technology, co-create new applications and hardware, and rethink what’s possible in a 5G world. The 5G Lab works with startups, academia and enterprise teams to build a 5G-powered world. We work on 5G trials, hackathons, industry partnerships, prototyping challenges and more.

Bridging the Digital Divide

In 2021, Verizon released a white paper: “Accelerating America: Affordability - Adoption - Access.” The paper outlines a proposal that Congress fund a new broadband benefit program to provide monthly subsidies of $20-50 to low-income consumers to use to purchase broadband services. This plan would help ensure that all Americans are connected to the internet by addressing three critical objectives for federal and state broadband policy: affordability, adoption, and access.
