Verizon's 5G network to launch April 11 in two U.S. cities
14 March, 2019, 07:45 | Author: Leah Owens
Verizon on Wednesday announced plans to launch its 5G Ultra Wideband Network in Chicago and Minneapolis on April 11.
Verizon, which plans to expand to more than 30 US cities in 2019, launched its first commercial 5G service in October when its 5G Home offering went live in Houston, Indianapolis, Los Angeles and Sacramento. By the end of this year, Verizon expects to have its 5G service live in more than 30 markets. The good news for customers looking to be among the first Verizon customers to take advantage of the faster speeds is that 5G access will only cost you $10 extra each month.
In preparation of the rollout, Verizon will be opening pre-orders for its 5G Moto Mod on March 14.
Verizon sidestepped one of the main challenges to 5G introduction - the absence of 5G phones - by offering an adaptation.
We Know Verizon’s First 5G Cities and First Plan Pricing
To be perfectly clear, you'll need both the Moto Z3 phone and magnetically-attaching accessory to break the 4G barrier, as the former comes with an aging Snapdragon 835 processor rather than the hot new 855 silicon. Existing Verizon customers with a Moto Z3 attached to their account can get the 5G Moto Mod for just $50.
Whether Verizon can hold onto higher prices for its 5G mobile network will depend on decisions made in Washington, D.C., where lawmakers are deliberating the wisdom of a T-Mobile and Sprint merger. As long as you have one of Verizon's unlimited plans (Go, Beyond, or Above Unlimited), you can pay $10/mo and get access to 5G. Moto has the first 5G upgradeable smartphone. By the way, the handset can be obtained free of charge from Big Red with a device payment plan and new line of service, fetching $10 a month for a total of $240 for upgrading customers. If you detach the mod, you'll naturally give up your "ultra-fast" speeds.
You should also know that Moto Mods are obviously only compatible with Motorola devices like the Moto Z3.
Verizon 5G home coverage will start at $70 per month. Samsung will eventually launch Galaxy S10 5G as a timed Verizon exclusive, but that won't be arriving until sometime this summer. For now, 5G Mobility is only in Chicago and Minneapolis.
