In January, AT&T and Verizon launched their C-Band 5G networks, giving them a legitimate competitor to T-fast Mobile’s mid-band 5G. Before connecting to C-Band 5G, however, phones must be updated with the proper firmware support, which has been a lengthy process. The Google Pixel 6 and 6 Pro, however, have now been added to the list.
The Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro have “officially been certified to work on Verizon’s 5G C-Band network,” according to Verizon’s George Koroneos.
Further, according to a new support article from Google, “earlier 5G-capable Pixel models have C-band capable hardware and are enabled for operation in certain countries.” In the United States, however, C-Band 5G will not be available on the Pixel 4a 5G, Pixel 5, or Pixel 5a.
As of now only subscribers with a “5G Get More,” “5G Play More,” or “5G Do More” plan can access Verizon’s C-Band 5G network; the cheapest “5G Start” wireless plan is excluded.
