Verizon launches 5G in Chicago, Minneapolis at $10 extra cost

Verizon will launch its 5G Ultra Wideband service in select areas in Chicago and Minneapolis on April 11.

Verizon says its new 5G network will launch in "more than 30 markets" in 2019, but stopped short at announcing rollout dates for any other US cities.

In brief: Verizon introduced its first 5G offering - a home broadband service - in Houston, Sacramento, Indianapolis and Los Angeles late past year using an early version of the 5G standard created by the 5G Technology Forum.

A handful of Verizon customers could soon have faster wireless service - but they'll have to pay $10 a month more.

Solskjaer Berates Referee For Penalty Call vs Arsenal
We knew before the game about our chance because Man United had one more point than us. "I think we can enjoy the support, today I think they helped us but we need to do it with respect".

And on March 14, customers can order the 5G moto mod, a clip-on modem that will make the Motorola moto z3 compatible with the new network.

Verizon finally revealed its first 5G cities this morning, as well as the initial pricing that will get your compatible phone on that new network.

To be perfectly clear, you'll need both the Moto Z3 phone and magnetically-attaching accessory to break the 4G barrier, as the former comes with an aging Snapdragon 835 processor rather than the hot new 855 silicon. In addition to Verizon's strap-on approach, AT&T Inc.is calling its upgraded 4G service "5G E". For Minneapolis, you are looking at 5G in Downtown West, Downtown East, and Elliot Park.

The offer is available only on unlimited plans, which now start at $75 for one person without 5G. The first three months of access will be free.

Halo: The Master Chief Collection coming to PC, Halo: Reach added
One specific game had yet to make the collection , but that's about to change when Halo: Reach releases on both PC and Xbox One . Due to the slow and methodical approach to releasing the Halo games on PC, none of the titles now have concrete release dates.

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.

While Verizon is leading the charge to test its 5G services, industry analysts say the higher-speed networks are unlikely to be widely available until the middle of the next decade. If you don't pre-order, the retail price is $349 when it arrives April 11.

The rush to the market underscores the eagerness of the carriers to sign up early adopters of the next-generation wireless technology.

Live in a Verizon 5G Home area and want to get busy with the 5G Moto Mod? But Samsung has yet to announce a release date for it.

Apple will launch its Netflix competitor on 25 March
This year, Apple is expected to unveil the iPad (7th-generation) that will retain the conventional headphone jack and Touch ID. While Apple has kept quiet about aspirations in this area, it's been quietly acquiring the rights to TV shows for many months.
