Verizon 5G home coverage will start at $70 per month.
Verizon sidestepped one of the main challenges to 5G introduction - the absence of 5G phones - by offering an adaptation.
The service will cost $10 per month after the first three months, which are free of charge, but it will require an unlimited plan - that means you'll need a Verizon Go Unlimited, Beyond Unlimited, and Above Unlimited plan.
As we've said many times: Carriers and device makers will be slinging 5G around hard this year.
Verizon Communications Inc beat rivals AT&T and Sprint in the race to launch the first fifth generation mobile services in two cities in the United States at an additional cost of $10 for customers with existing unlimited plans.
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. Verizon told The Verge that in the Windy City, they'll be focusing on service on The Loop near landmarks like Willis Tower, Millennium Park and Union Station as well as in the River North, Gold Coast and Old Town areas. You might want to wait a while before buying a 5G phone, though. For now, 5G Mobility is a $10 add-on feature. Samsung will eventually launch Galaxy S10 5G as a timed Verizon exclusive, but that won't be arriving until sometime this summer.
If you're not a Verizon customer or you don't have a Moto Z3, you can still get in on the action.
And on March 14, customers can order the 5G moto mod, a clip-on modem that will make the Motorola moto z3 compatible with the new network.
Verizon, which plans to expand to more than 30 USA 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.
