Verizon announced this week that LG Wing will be getting an update that will enable Verizon’s latest 5G spectrum to be used for more than a year after LG has completely quit its smartphone business. LG Wing is certified to use a mid-band spectrum called the C-band, which is an important part of Verizon’s 5G network, which offers better speeds and a wider range of signals than LTE. Verizon spokesman George Koroneos said updates began to arrive on the device yesterday and will continue to be pushed for the rest of the week.

If you’re one of the few people who bought the LG Wing, this is good news. It’s a testament to LG’s commitment to continue to provide support for its devices. But why is an old mobile brand year and a half phone now getting this update when, for example, last year’s Google Pixel 5A wasn’t? That’s why 5G in this country is still confusing.

Careers have been desperately collecting 5G spectra over the past few years to win imaginary races. AT & T and Verizon had to wait to gain a share of the very important midband spectrum, but they were creative, repackaging LTE as “5G Evolution” and pretending that mmWave would be the future. Did. Meanwhile, T-Mobile has preyed on the country’s fourth wireless operator in its mid-band spectrum, and its alternatives have been plagued by endless delays.

Their efforts to win the “competition for 5G” have resulted in confusing patchwork of network frequencies that require the appropriate hardware, software, and FCC clearance to use them.There are so many hoops to jump, so manufacturers like Google Maybe … It supports the C band, but ultimately decides not to clear the final hurdle to prove it in the carrier’s network.

You don’t have to worry if you buy a new 5G phone through your carrier. This will almost certainly work with the 5G networks we are currently promoting. However, if you have a 5G phone 1-2 years old from your carrier, or an unlocked phone, it’s much less clear which networks are supported and which aren’t. LG may not have understood the smartphone business, but at least they did.
