Frequently Asked Questions:

What is a 5G-enabled device? A 5G-enabled device is any product that’s capable of connecting to a 5G network. This includes certain smartphones, tablets, broadband routers and WiFi dongles. Paired with a 5G SIM, these devices can access the superfast 5G network.

Can I use 5G with my Data Only plan? Yes, as long as you are using a 5G-enabled device e.g. a 5G-enabled tablet. All of our SIMs including Data Only SIMs can access the 5G network.

Why don’t I have 5G in my area? In partnership with our sister brand Three, we are currently working hard to roll out 5G across the UK. This means that it may not be in your area yet, but don't worry 5G is on its way and, in the meantime, you can still enjoy our fast and reliable 4G network.
