What Verizon will charge for 5G

What Verizon will charge for 5G

Good news, Verizon, the exclusive 5G carrier of the Moto Z3, is opening pre-orders at a much more reasonable $50 (about £38, AU$70), and 5G plans start at an extra $10 a month.

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. Verizon did say that they plan to "rapidly expand", though. Later in the year, Verizon will launch the Samsung Galaxy S10 5G too, but we don't have timing for release on that.

At the end of the day, the Moto Z3, with the thick 5G Moto Mod, is phone and it gets you a 5G signal before anyone else - depending (another "depending") on where you live.

Come April 11, customers in the first two 5G Ultra Wideband mobility cities will be able to experience all the benefits of this "true" next-gen network, including "ultra-fast wireless speeds" enabling movie downloads and streaming "in seconds", as well as "ultra-low latency" allowing "business customers to video conference and collaborate remotely in near real time".

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 Above Unlimited line with 5G access will cost $105 a month with a $5 Auto Pay discount.

"5G data usage with the Moto Mod is unlimited with no data deprioritization", a Verizon spokesperson told Ars today. If the merger is blocked, Verizon will have less competition dominating the 5G market in the U.S. AT&T is also upgrading its networks to 5G.

Verizon kept things awfully vague the last time it tackled 5G rollout plans, but it didn't take long for the nation's largest wireless service provider to get specific about dates, places, and prices.

Customers can pre-order the 5G Moto Mod starting March 14. 5G service in Minneapolis will be in Downtown West, Downtown East, and Elliot Park.

What happens if you aren't in a 5G area?

5G will start rolling out this year, but it isn't something anyone should seriously consider until 2020.
