Verizon announced today that it will launch its 5G network on April 11 in Chicago and Minneapolis. However, only parts of the cities will experience the service before the coverage is expanded more widely.
Labeling the service "5G ultra wideband," the provider also revealed pricing details for the network. For an extra $10 month on top of typical Verizon unlimited plans, you'll have unlimited 5G data. The first three months of access will be free.
Without the 5G service, Verizon's three unlimited plans cost $75, $85, or $95 a month for a single line and differ based on throttling policies, video quality, and mobile hotspot data limits. That means a single-line plan with 5G will cost $85 to $105 a month, plus taxes and fees.
In order to usher in 5G, Verizon also announced that it will be exclusively offering the 5G Moto Mod for pre-order starting on Mar. 14. The Moto Mod is an add-on for the Moto Z3 smartphone that effectively turns it into a 5G phone. Verizon said that the Moto Z3 and Moto Mod combination will turn it into the world's first 5G phone.
By the end of this year, Verizon expects to have its 5G service live in more than 30 markets.
