    I doubt it. The first “mobile” 5G device was hideous. It was a Motorola phone with a battery/5G case the phone snapped into.

    Until they can figure out power issues and shrink down the 5G chipset to something tiny and fit it into the phone, it will be several years before anyone rolls a phone with it on board.

    it's called FIXED for a reason. Also not everywhere in your city will have 5G. Verizon clearly states even in the 4 cities where this is offers it's available in LIMITED areas.

    Nope. Definitely not a mobile setup.

    The first iteration will be a proprietary setup where technicians will have to come to your home and install it just like your wired ISP.

    I'm looking forward to newer generations of product that are mobile first with the option to remain in any fixed place you choose.

    Verizon promises a free upgrade to the standards based version once the product is ready for release.

    That's called a Moto Mod, and allows ALL phones in the Moto Z series to be upgraded with a 5G radio once it's available. It's rather ingenious. Too bad Motorola and their parent company Lenovo seem determined to make sure the modular smartphone concept is a failure for them.

    Oh goody conspiracy theories. Why would they do that? And if you want to know where they have 5G just look for a 5G antenna. they aren't hard to find if you have 5G access at your location

    I guess you could call it a conspiracy.Just a opinion! I don't know if the county or should I say the part of the county I live in will ever see 5G. I would just like to see if they just outright lie like T-Mobile does on Maryland's Eastern shore.

    The boonies will see limited 5G at best. if you think Verizon is that shady why give then money each month? Also an incorrect map is not necessarily a lie. Also maps can not account for buildings/structures and foliage or indoor reception. Maps at best are a guess. if the weatherman on Monday says Saturday will be sunny then it rains. he didn't lie. it's that weather forecasts beyond 72 hours aren't that accurate.

    All the providers have fan boys and detractors, all providers have wishful coverage maps but all it really comes down to is location. What works for me might not work for you. In the end, there are MVNO’s utilizing all the major networks so if a user doesn’t want to pay Big Red for their service, they can find economical substitutes to post paid plans of the big four. Take a look at Verizon Prepaid, PagePlus, Straight Talk, Puppy Wireless, or Boom just to name a few.

    I'm sure there are MVNOs that use Verizon.

    Then you really don't have any right to complain about anything.
