As per reports, Verizon (VZ) has entered deals with SBA and Crown Castle, two-tower companies already hosting Verizon infrastructure equipment, to quicken the deployment of C-band equipment for the launch of 5G Ultra-Wideband and fixed wireless broadband service on this newly acquired spectrum.
Verizon will offer increased mobility and broadband services to millions of more consumers and businesses, with its recently acquired 161 MHz of C-band spectrum nationwide in the recent FCC auction.
The deals signed with both Crown Castle and SBA Communications will provide process improvements including standardizing and reducing forms and minimizing legal reviews, allowing Verizon engineering teams to expedite deployment of C-band equipment. Both agreements have defined terms for leasing space on existing towers for C-band equipment.
“The addition of C-band spectrum to our already robust spectrum portfolio means we will be able to provide the differentiated service of 5G Ultra Wideband mobility service to an additional 250 million customers and, for the first time, 50 million additional customers will have a choice in their internet provider as we bring 5G Home to more places. These new agreements with our tower companies allow us to work very efficiently to pre-position all needed equipment on existing towers on our best-in-class network.” stated Heidi Hemmer, Senior Vice President of Engineering at Verizon.
