According to

Verizon will launch its 5G mobile service in April, but it will only be available in two cities at first, and customers will have to pay an extra $10 a month to access it. One bit of good news is that Verizon won’t apply throttling (or “de-prioritization”) to the 5G service, but that may change later on, and slowdowns will continue to apply to Verizon’s existing 4G service.

Verizon today announced that its 5G network will go live on April 11 in “select areas of” Chicago and Minneapolis and eventually hit “more than 30” US cities in 2019. To use the 5G service at launch, you’ll have to pay $50 for “the Verizon-exclusive 5G Moto Mod,” which can be attached to a Motorola Moto Z3, a phone that Verizon sells for $480.
