Verizon Discloses Pricing for Its First 5G Mobile Service

5G Moto Mod for Moto Z3 Goes Up for Pre-Order Tomorrow

Verizon says 5G network will cost extra $10 a month

Samsung's Galaxy S10 5G, which is a larger, beefier version of the Galaxy S10+ and comes with a fourth rear camera, looks like it could be the first 5G phone for Verizon that won't be a brick in your trousers the way the Moto Z3 with 5G Moto Mod is. T-Mobile US Inc. has also promised mobile 5G service to start in 30 cities this year, with more comprehensive coverage coming next year. 5G service in Minneapolis will be in Downtown West, Downtown East, and Elliot Park. It requires Motorola's Moto Z3 phone with a special 5G attachment.

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.

"If adding 5G service is a significant step-up from 4G, then $10 is a reasonable customer expectation", King said.

The offer is available only on unlimited plans, which now start at $75 for one person without 5G.

Finally, the last obstacle between you and 5G is a compatible device. Moto has the first 5G upgradeable smartphone. You might want to wait a while before buying a 5G phone, though.

"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. "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". 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.

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

Motorola's 5G add-on costs $350 (about £265, AU$495), as much as the the Moto Z3 itself at some online retailers.
