The offer is available only on unlimited plans, which now start at $75 for one person or $160 for a family of four without 5G.

Verizon sidestepped one of the main challenges to 5G introduction - the absence of 5G phones - by offering an adaptation.

Verizon will charge an extra $10 per month for smartphone users to access its 5G network.

Aaron Hernandez’s murder conviction reinstated by Massachusetts’s highest court
Unless Massachusetts' highest court changes its own decision, Hernandez will remain a convicted murderer for eternity. Some, like MA , toss the convictions, while other states dismiss the defendant's appeal and the conviction stands.

And lastly, the only phone that will work with Verizon's 5G network at launch will be the Moto Z3, which must be paired with the 5G Moto Mod.

Regardless of how you get the Moto Z3 and the 5G Moto Mod, it will cost you $10 per month on top of your existing Verizon unlimited plan payments to access 5G. 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. Of course, you'll need a compatible phone and there are none at this point. In addition to Verizon's strap-on approach, AT&T calling its upgraded 4G service "5G E".

Verizon said 5G service in Chicago will be available in the Loop, the Magnificent Mile, Gold Coast, River North, and Old Town. If you don't pre-order, the retail price is $349 when it arrives April 11. 5G service in Minneapolis will be in Downtown West, Downtown East, and Elliot Park.

The 2020 budget proposal would slash ED's budget by 10 percent at the program level or $8.5 billion, down to $62 billion. Some fiscal watchdogs, though, panned the effort as more piling on of debt by Trump with no course correction in sight.

In other words, preordering the Moto Z3 and the 5G Moto Mod this week will get you a high-end 5G smartphone for $540 off the regular price. Samsung's said the S10 5G will launch in Q2 of this year, which means it could launch as early as April.

"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.

The 5G Moto Mod will be available on preorder on March 14th, and Verizon is discounting it to just $50 for a limited time.
