Verizon mobile 5G launches April with extra fees: 5G Moto Mod dated

  • 5G is coming

Credit: Tom's GuideThe U.S. carrier plans to turn on its 5G network in Chicago and Minneapolis on April 11, it said in a statement on Wednesday.

Verizon says its new 5G network will launch in "more than 30 markets" in 2019, but stopped short at announcing rollout dates for any other US cities.

Lastly, if you live in a market with Verizon 5G services and have a phone that supports it, you'll need to pay an extra $10/month on top of your existing Go Unlimited, Beyond Unlimited, or Above Unlimited plan in order to access it.

Motorola and Verizon have begun taking pre-orders for the 5G Moto Mod, the addon-accessory for the Moto z3 smartphone introduced previous year.

In Chicago, you'll have access to Verizon's 5G in The Loop, Magnificent Mile (around the Verizon store there), The Gold Coast, River North and Old Town at the outset. When Verizon's 5G service launches in Chicago and Minneapolis next month, that 5G Moto Mod will likely be the only way to tap into the network.

But the 16-page document includes other elements of the account that Smollett had stood by for weeks. Chicago police, however, apparently have lots of evidence proving otherwise .

Analysts said Verizon's (vz) initial 5G service would only tempt a small number of consumers to sign up, given its spotty coverage and price premium. Only one of the current 4G devices in the carrier's lineup can be upgraded to 5G, and that's what Verizon is essentially offering its subscribers. Better yet, this 5G service fee is waived for the first three months. For Minneapolis, you are looking at 5G in Downtown West, Downtown East, and Elliot Park.

For a limited time, customers can preorder the 5G moto mod, which retails for $349.99, for just $50. 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.

This is great news because it means there will actually be a working 5G network to use the handful of new 5G smartphones launching this year on.

"We can tell you that 5G Moto Mod users will experience ultra-fast speeds, be able to download and stream movies in seconds, and, due to 5G's low latency, they'll be able to video conference and collaborate remotely in near real-time", Verizon told Ars, when asked for specific speed and latency numbers. Besides, we still don't want to think about how much the 5G-capable Galaxy S10 variant might cost. To buy a 5G moto mod, customers must either have an active moto z3 on their account or purchase a moto z3 at the same time as the 5G moto mod. Sprint (s) has said it will offer 5G starting in May in Chicago, Atlanta, Dallas, and Kansas City but hasn't disclosed pricing.
