As many as 22% of Americans aged 50–64 used Verizon Wireless as a mobile phone carrier. The lowest number of Verizon wireless customers belongs to the 18–29 category (18%).

This is a sharp decline compared to 2015 when Verizon had a whopping 9.23 million broadband internet subscribers. 

The reduced number of subscribers is the result of Verizon’s selling of its local exchange business and related landline activities in Texas, California, and Florida to Frontier Communications in 2016.

Verizon’s 5G could cover 175 million people by the end of 2022.

In March, the company announced that it’s ahead of schedule with the rollout of the 5G Ultra Wideband technology. The network engineering team’s rapid deployment enabled it to meet its accelerated goal.

Verizon’s 5G Ultra Wideband is up to 10 times faster than LTE and can reach speeds of more than a gigabit per second. 

The company is also planning a “+play” feature that’ll enable subscribers access to various deals thanks to Verizon’s partnerships with the world’s most popular streaming service, Netflix, Peloton, Disney+, and others. 

Over 80,000 customers use Fleetmatic.

Verizon has the world’s most extensive GPS fleet management system with over 1.8 million vehicles.                                                                                                                                

Fleetmatics and sister companies Verizon Telematics and Telogis rebranded as Verizon Connect in 2018. 

Wrapping Up

But we’ll see what the future holds for this operator and whether it’ll manage to maintain the current number of customers. For now, the numbers speak for themselves as to how vast Verizon’s reach is.
