Verizon is an American telecommunications company created in 2000 through a merger of GTE Corporation and Bell Atlantic Corporation. It offers a variety of wireless products and services. It is currently the second largest provider of wireless telecommunications in the US, only trailing AT&T. Verizon is currently ranked 20th on the Fortune 500, dropping one spot over the past year. Verizon has placed an emphasis on building the best 5G network over diversifying their current portfolio through stepping into the entertainment industry which Comcast and AT&T has done. This seems to have worked in their favor with profits surging by 24% over the past year.
