Verizon’s flanker brand, Visible, includes 5G service at no extra charge. At this time, only devices in the iPhone 12 line can access Visible’s 5G service. Support for some 5G-capable Android phones is coming soon. While it looks like Visible subscribers will have access to both Verizon’s sub-6 and millimeter wave 5G (see coverage map), the carrier suggests speeds will be capped at a maximum of 200Mbps.
Visible 5G coverage map
Visible shares an interactive coverage map on its website. Areas with 5G coverage are shaded in dark blue, while a lighter shade appears for areas that are only covered by 4G LTE service.
Visible’s map does not specifically indicate areas where millimeter wave coverage is available. More details about Verizon’s 5G network, including a list of cities where millimeter wave 5G is available, can be found on my dedicated page about Verizon’s 5G.
At the moment, only phones in the iPhone 12 line running iOS 14.3 or later can access 5G service from Visible.1
While I don’t know when Visible will offer support for 5G-capable Android phones, I’m guessing it will come in the next few months. The carrier has already been selling several 5G-capable Android phones in its online store.
5G speed caps
Visible’s 5G Q&A page suggests the carrier will limit speeds with 5G service to 200Mbps.
I confirmed whether Visible is enforcing the 200Mbps cap.
