Earlier today, Verizon launched the “5G Ultra Show,” offering a look at the impressive ways that 5G Ultra Wideband, which is available in more cities, will transform how stadiums, airports, retail stores and even cities operate. The event, hosted by Elizabeth Banks, demonstrated how the technology benefits various aspects of culture and everyday life, from streaming and hotspot safety to gaming and entertainment.

Elizabeth Banks was joined by Verizon CEO Hans Vestberg to showcase what 5G Ultra Wideband can do, heading to different locations to display the real world applications of the technology. For starters, it increases speed and allows for higher definition audio and video. That means everyday tasks — video calls, sharing files, streaming — are all noticeably crisper, cleaner and faster with Verizon 5G Ultra Wideband.

Beyond improved speeds for day to day tasks, it has implications for gaming, music, entertainment, sports and more. To illustrate how the technology affects each of these realms, the livestream event featured appearances from stars like Terry Crews, who showed how 5G Ultra Wideband isn’t just for mobile devices and can support broadband internet for homes and small businesses.

The show also displayed how sports and gaming enthusiasts will benefit from 5G Ultra Wideband, and how it will boost their experiences going forward. For instance, 5G Ultra Wideband can enhance in-stadium events when one is connected to the network.

If you missed the livestream of the Verizon 5G Ultra Show, you can still catch it on Verizon’s website. Stay tuned to HYPEBEAST for key takeaways from the event.
