Verizon told to stop ads claiming 'most powerful' 5G service

Wednesday 2 September 2020 | 10:45 CET | News

The National Advertising Review Board told Verizon it should stop using the claim "Verizon is building the most powerful 5G experience for America", which appeared in two commercials by the operator earlier this year. The board said the ads did not reflect the current state of Verizon's 5G service, which still has limited availability.
