Vestberg also offered presentations by NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, Professional Football Hall of Famer Deion Sanders, Smithsonian Institution Secretary Lonnie Bunch, UPS CEO Carol Tome and several Verizon leaders to show how 5G will enhance the communications experience.

Hans Vestberg, chairman and CEO of Verizon Communications, used a CES staple — a musical performance by a popular group — to demonstrate 5G’s capabilities on the first day of the four-day consumer electronics showcase that normally fills convention centers and hotels every January.
Verizon’s top executive told a virtual CES audience Monday about the real-life applications of 5G communications networks in the kickoff keynote address of the trade show that normally draws more than 170,000 people to Southern Nevada.
