What Verizon will charge for 5G

What Verizon will charge for 5G

The service starts on April 11 in the two midwestern cities and will be "rapidly expanding" to the other 28 cities this year, according to Kyle Malady, Verizon's chief technology officer. 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.

Just like 4G a few years ago, initial 5G coverage will be limited to a few markets and the same goes for Verizon.

Verizon CEO Hans Vestberg on the opportunities for growth, what 5G will mean for consumers, the telecom's cost cutting and the outlook for the USA economy.

Moto Z3 5G Moto Mod

5G access will be available to customers who subscribe to one of Verizon's unlimited data plans for an extra $10 per month-though that $10 add-on charge will be waived for the first three months. Buying the $85 plan lets a customer use at least 22GB a month before facing possible slowdowns, while the $95 plan comes with 75GB before possible slowdowns. But Samsung has yet to announce a release date for it. Of course, you'll need a compatible phone and there are none at this point.

So what are Verizon's first 5G markets? Even Verizon is using that careful language (it's also the exclusive USA carrier for Samsung's 5G phone for a limited time). For Minneapolis, you are looking at 5G in Downtown West, Downtown East, and Elliot Park.

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


Customers can pre-order the 5G Moto Mod starting March 14.

You should also know that Moto Mods are obviously only compatible with Motorola devices like the Moto Z3.

The largest USA wireless carrier by subscribers will offer the device for $50 initially and its customers would not have to pay for 5G use for the first three months.


Verizon's "5G Ultra Wideband Network" is the real deal - it works with phones and other mobile devices just like 4G LTE - and isn't to be confused with the company's "home" 5G network, which launched a year ago in select cities.
