What is 5G?

What is 5G?

5G is the next generation of mobile internet technology, offering faster speeds and greater reliability than the existing 4G network. While 4G can see speeds of up to 100MB per second, 5G can reach speeds of up to 10GB per second.

In addition to faster speeds, 5G users experience less lag and drop-off in busy areas. 5G occupies higher frequencies and a larger bandwidth, which means more capacity for a large number of connections at once, and reducing network congestion.

When will 5G arrive?

When will 5G arrive?

5G arrived in the UK during summer 2019, with an initial rollout covering several major cities, including London, Edinburgh, Cardiff, Birmingham and Manchester. A second wave of cites is set to follow, with much of the UK expecting coverage by 2020.

Each of the major networks has their own rollout plans, so coverage by area will initially vary, depending on which network you choose. 5G is also being adopted internationally, with some areas of the USA already test-driving the new network.

Will I need a 5G enabled handset and tariff?

Will I need a 5G enabled handset and tariff?

Yes, in order to access the new super-fast 5G network, you’ll need a handset which has 5G capabilities. Take a look at the handsets listed above to browse 5G-ready handsets currently available.

In addition to purchasing a 5G-ready handset, you’ll need to make sure to select a 5G tariff. It will take a number of months before 5G is the network standard, so our deals will be marked up as either 4G or 5G tariffs.

Ways To Buy 5G

When will 5G arrive?

If you don’t want to be tied down by a 24 month contact, you can buy your 5G-ready handset, SIM-free. This means paying a single upfront sum for your phone, and avoiding a long-term agreement. You’ll just need a 5G SIM to use with it.

Purchasing a 5G SIM-only deal, offers the flexibility to choose a shorter agreement, and lower monthly line rental. Just be aware that you’ll need a SIM on a 5G tariff in order to connect to the network, and a 5G-ready handset to pair it with.
