    It appears that we'll also have mmWave here in Syracuse, NY, too. Somewhere.

    I was under the impression it was already there.... Does that mean they disabled it first?

    I think they only had the UWB 5g enabled for now.

    What does the entry in the available Networks look like? On my Verizon variant S20 FE I have Global, LTE/CDMA, and LTE/GSM/UMTS. I assume I'll need an update to add a a network option, no? These options are the same old, same old.

    It falls under global. They'll enable it through the update.

    Using the link I provided earlier I don't see any added 5G support in my area or New York City.

    Put your address and if it's red, you're covered on 5G. They updated it.

    Thats impressive. I did notice from a week ago my signal improved but speeds still remain around 20-30mbps dl and 5mb up. Gotta see how it hits tomorrow when the update drops

    This all feels a little New OS Update-ish. Everyone all a buzz about the changes and chomping at the bit to get the download. I checked the map and my important places are all red. It'll be interesting to see what changes but I'm not excited about it.

    Thanks for the info though. I actually wasn't expecting it to be online this soon.

    Cool, thanks for the heads up. Usually reps with the carriers don't have a clue for when updates will actually drop.

    I just did the update and I can confirm I now have the 5G logo!

    The only thing is, I don't pay for the unlimited plans, and I thought that was the only way you got 5G?

    What phone do you have and everyone gets the low bands regardless of plans. It's the uwb(really fast speeds) that you won't get.

    So on my unlimited plan which would charge 10 dollars extra for 5G I can get low band without paying extra?

    Email's are starting to go out so hopefully all the software updates for the phones will be pushed today. I'm on gUdp so it will be nice to feel like I'm getting more coverage i.e 5G although I know I won't be getting the true fast speeds lol.

    Correct low band at no additional charge. They made the announcement about a month ago.

    I think the fact there have been numerous reports of the nationwide 5G being slower than 4G in many places probably puts a damper on things.
