Jessica Dolcourt isn't thrilled. And I can't blame her.
Using a Moto Z3 and a mod for 5G, even directly under the 5G node in the Verizon store, the phone keeps going from 4 to 5G.
It gets worse as spotty connections at various points in the Windy City stop, stall, and eventually cannot connect to 5G hotspots at all.
The mod...well, read the article. It has an issue that won't be a problem as new phones comes out, but for now, it does.
Buying a 5G capable phone right now would still be a waste, let alone Verizon's upcharge to "use" the "service".
