There's a caveat, of course, as the carrier said only parts of the cities will experience Verizon's 5G Ultra Wideband mobility service before the coverage is expanded more widely.
Verizon will charge customers an extra $10 per month to add fifth-generation wireless service to their phones, the company said on Wednesday, setting the benchmark for other providers who have yet to disclose how much the faster service will cost consumers. The first 5G-enabled smartphone to accompany the service is the Motorola moto z3 with the 5G moto mod, which will be available for pre-order on March 14.
Finally, the last obstacle between you and 5G is a compatible device.
And lastly, the only phone that will work with Verizon's 5G network at launch will be the Moto Z3, which must be paired with the 5G Moto Mod.
Mark your calendars for April 11, because that's when Verizon switches on its "real" 5G network in two USA cities.
Motorola Moto Z3
The 5G service in Chicago and Minneapolis is built on Verizon's 5G Ultra Wideband Network.
If the device sounds familiar, that's because Motorola spoke about the device in recent weeks, showing the 5G Moto Mod in Barcelona at MWC 2019. Alternatively, you can upgrade your smartphone to a Moto Z3 for $10 a month for 24 months, which means you'd save $240 off the regular price. That's not a bad deal if you're looking for quick access to 5G, as long as you're okay having to carry a huge Moto Z3 contraption in your pocket.
Nevertheless, 5G will be faster than what's available today and for that, you'll have to pay.
If you're not a Verizon customer or you don't have a Moto Z3, you can still get in on the action. If you don't pre-order, the retail price is $349 when it arrives April 11. But Samsung has yet to announce a release date for it. "While we have been clear that 5G service will be a significant [upgrade] over 4G LTE when it comes to speed and latency, we'll provide expected network performance information closer to launch". Sprint (s) has said it will offer 5G starting in May in Chicago, Atlanta, Dallas, and Kansas City but hasn't disclosed pricing.
