Verizon Coverage Maps – Verizon 5G Map

Coverage Critic offers a fully interactive map in addition to the maps on this page that show a subset of the available coverage information.

If you enter a location below, the coverage maps will update to the location of your choice.

Darker shades of red indicate a stronger signal. White indicates areas where Verizon is not expected to offer coverage.

Verizon Coverage Map – Any Technology

The coverage map below combines 4G and 5G coverage. Maps showing only 4G and only 5G coverage are also available.

Verizon 4G LTE Map

4G LTE continues to be the backbone of Verizon’s network as 5G coverage continues to rollout. I believe Verizon continues to have the most 4G LTE coverage in the US, but the size of Verizon’s lead has shrunk over time.

Verizon Coverage Vs. AT&T Coverage

Verizon and AT&T have the largest networks in the United States. In my opinion, Verizon has an edge in remote and rural areas, but both networks have similar coverage footprint in more populous areas. See AT&T’s coverage vs. Verizon’s coverage for more details.

Verizon Coverage Vs. T-Mobile Coverage

Verizon’s network offers substantially more coverage area than T-Mobile’s network. However, both networks tend to have solid coverage in medium and large cities. In many urban areas, T-Mobile may actually offer better performance than Verizon. While T-Mobile doesn’t have as large a coverage area as Verizon when accounting for all cellular technologies, T-Mobile actually offers more 5G coverage than Verizon.

Roaming Coverage

On some plans, Verizon offers roaming coverage via partner networks. This coverage may be reflected in Verizon’s maps. I expect most roaming coverage is not reflected in Coverage Critic’s maps.

Verizon 5G Spectrum

Verizon splits its 5G service into two categories: 5G Nationwide and 5G Ultra Wideband.

  • 5G Nationwide: Uses low-frequency signals. While the speeds from 5G Nationwide aren’t wildly fast, the service has lots of coverage.
  • 5G Ultra Wideband: Uses high frequency signals and offers better speeds than 5G Nationwide. 5G Ultra Wideband isn’t available in nearly as many places as 5G Nationwide. Verizon’s 5G Ultra Wideband can be further subdivided into C-Band 5G and millimeter wave 5G. Millimeter wave 5G provides blazing-fast speeds, but it’s terrible for covering large areas. The service is offered in parts of some cities, airports, and stadiums. Verizon’s C-Band 5G is much more widely available.
