BASKING RIDGE, N.J., Jan. 11, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Today, Verizon Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Hans Vestberg took to the virtual Consumer Electronics Show (CES) stage to deliver the 2021 kick-off keynote address. This marked his second appearance on the CES keynote stage in two years. In 2019, Vestberg promised that Verizon’s 5G would usher in the “Fourth Industrial Revolution.” And today, he brought the impact 5G is having to life through compelling present-day 5G use cases across sports, education, connected communities and live music.
“Our world has experienced significant change since we last took the keynote stage at CES in 2019. There’s been an extreme acceleration in the digital revolution, and at the heart of that transformation is 5G technology. The future of work, learning, telehealth, retail and streaming are very much our current realities. And we are just getting started. 5G isn’t just another tech innovation, it’s the platform that makes other innovations possible.” — Hans Vestberg, Chairman and CEO, Verizon.
