Reviewers struggle to locate Verizon 5G signals in launch areas of Chicago.

By Jon Brodkin

Verizon launched its mobile 5G network last week in "select areas" of
Minneapolis and Chicago, and a speed test shared by a Verizon
spokesperson showed an impressive download speed of 762Mbps.

But the single speed test displayed by Verizon was conducted near a
tower with clear line of sight to that tower. Actually finding a 5G
signal elsewhere in Verizon's launch areas is much more difficult,
according to tests by The Verge and CNET.
