Verizon on Wednesday has turned on its mobile 5G network, promising significantly faster speeds than the 4G LTE networks we've been using so far.




So far, only one phone can connect to Verizon's 5G mobile network: The Motorola Moto Z3, which needs a "5G "Moto Mod" attachment to connect to Verizon's 5G network.




So far, the only other 5G-compatible phone coming to the US is the Samsung Galaxy S10 5G, which is coming in the first half of this year as an exclusive to Verizon to start with.




AT&T has already activated its own 5G network, but there are no phones that support AT&T's 5G network yet.



Verizon has officially turned on its mobile 5G network in Minneapolis and Chicago.
Verizon promises that its 5G network delivers speeds up to one gigabit-per-second (Gbps). Those speeds are significantly faster than the 4G LTE network we've been using so far to browse the web, stream videos and music, and lurk on social media.
To put Verizon's 5G speed claim into perspective, I'm lucky to get around 20 megabits-per-second — 2% the speed of one gigabit-per-second — on Verizon's 4G LTE network in and around New York City.
