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.

California governor to impose moratorium on executions
California's voters have narrowly upheld the death penalty, most recently in 2016, when they voted to speed up the process. She won her party's nomination nonetheless, losing to Republican Pete Wilson in the general election later that year.

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.

Lagos building collapses, deaths reported, many trapped in rubble
The building was in the Ita-faji area of Lagos island, the original heart of the lagoon city before it expanded onto the mainland. Many people including school children are believed to be trapped inside a building that collapsed on Wednesday.

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.
