What Verizon will charge for 5G

Moto Z3 5G Moto Mod Verizon says 5G network will cost extra $10 a month

Of course, you'll need a 5G-capable device to take your cellular download speeds to the next level, and although we still have no idea exactly when the Galaxy S10 5G and LG V50 ThinQ 5G are supposed to start selling, Verizon has you covered with a 2018 phone.

The 5G Moto Mod, for Motorola's Moto Z3. For an extra $10 month on top of typical Verizon unlimited plans, you'll have unlimited 5G data. As long as you have one of Verizon's unlimited plans (Go, Beyond, or Above Unlimited), you can pay $10/mo and get access to 5G. On family plans, each 5G line would cost $10 extra. Even Verizon is using that careful language (it's also the exclusive USA carrier for Samsung's 5G phone for a limited time). The plans are "unlimited" in the sense that customers don't have to pay overage fees for going over the limits. AT&T has begun offering what it calls "5G Evolution", which is actually just the 4G LTE that is used by Verizon, T-Mobile and Sprint. 5G usage won't count toward the 22GB and 75GB de-prioritization thresholds, Verizon also told us. Verizon did say that they plan to "rapidly expand", though. For now, the Moto Z3 and its 5G Moto Mod. Tough luck! You won't be getting 5G yet. If you don't pre-order, the retail price is $349 when it arrives April 11.

In Chicago, that will mean 5G service in The Loop, Magnificent Mile, The Gold Coast, River North, and Old Town. 5G service in Minneapolis will be in Downtown West, Downtown East, and Elliot Park. But it's based on Verizon's own version of 5G rather than the 5G NR (New Radio) global standard.

"5G Mobility service in Chicago and Minneapolis, and all Verizon 5G services going forward, use the NR standard developed by the 3rd Generation Partnership Project (3GPP)", Verizon's press release said.

What happens if you aren't in a 5G area? It also revealed when Motorola's 5G Moto Mod will be launching and how much it'll cost. Starting Thursday, March 14, the company is taking orders for a $50 snap-on module for the Motorola Z3 phone, making it the only phone that will be enabled for the advanced service by the April 11 launch date. The $50 price will apply for "a limited time", Verizon said.
