Verizon Mobile 5G Service Coming to Chicago & Minneapolis
Verizon announced that its 5G service will be available in select areas in Chicago and Minneapolis starting on April 11, 2019. Later in the year, the 5G service will expand to more than 30 other cities.
The Chicago areas that will receive 5G coverage include:
- Union Station
- Willis Tower
- The Art Institute of Chicago
- Millennium Park
- The Chicago Theatre
The Minneapolis areas that will receive 5G coverage include:
- Minneapolis Convention Center
- Minneapolis Central Library
- Mill City Museum
- Target Center
- First Avenue venues
- The Commons
- S. Bank Stadium
- Parts of Elliot Park

The 5G plan will be available for $10-per-month as an add-on to Verizon’s unlimited plans. For the first three months, the fee is waived. Customers will have unlimited 5G data usage and no de-prioritization on the new Motorola clip-on 5G moto mod.
Verizon announced that customers can now pre-order the Motorola 5G moto mod for $50. This clip-on module pairs with the moto z3 and makes smartphones 5G-capable. Using the 5G moto mod attachment allows customers to get a 5G signal from outside of the coverage areas Verizon announced.
