5G is here!

Wave goodbye to loading times, as 5G speeds give you access to everything, instantly.

What are the main benefits?

Without getting too technical, the main benefits compared to 4G include:
Faster download and upload speeds
Handles more devices and data at once
Loads pages instantly
Responds quicker in games
Wider coverage once it’s rolled out
This means that gaming and watching films on-the-go will truly be better than ever before (and you won’t have to watch loading icons spin around, and around, and around…).

Can I use 5G on any phone?

To see the benefits of 5G, you’ll need a phone that’s been built with the latest spec to really take advantage of these unbelievable network speeds. If you’re using an older phone in a 5G area, you’ll only get a stronger 4G connection. So, when looking for a new 2-year contract, why not future-proof yourself with one of our 5G ready models?

What is 5G?

5G is the fifth generation of wireless technology that lets you get online with your phone, wherever you are, but to really understand it you need to jump back to the beginning with 1G. When this came around, a new world of being able to call others from a mobile came to light, while 2G brought texting to the table. With 3G you were able to jump online, and then 4G improved on this, allowing you to scroll through social media whenever and wherever. 5G is the next step up, giving us faster upload and download speeds, cinematic streaming quality, and will open the doors to so much more.

4G Vs 5G: Why switch over?

With speeds that could reach up to 100x faster than 4G, 5G really does make a world of difference. 4G has become our way of life, but it’s now starting to struggle to keep up with busy lifestyles and is overcrowded in public spaces, leaving you with annoying loading times and buffering in videos. Well, 5G boots all of these problems right out the door, letting you download boxset episodes quickly, and then stream each one in stunning quality without any buffering. Plus, if you’re really into your games, 5G massively helps response time too, so you’ll never be able to blame missing your final kill on any annoying lagging.

5G Mobile phone contract deals

5G brings a whole new level of speed to the table. Fancy watching a boxset on your travels? It’ll download almost instantly and play in stunning detail all thanks to 5G. And, you’ll have no problem staying in contact with your mates at festivals, since it offers a more reliable connection, even in crowds. We work with leading networks like Three, O2 and Vodafone, who are rolling out reliable 5G coverage across the country. Plus, we sell smartphones from leading brands like Samsung, Huawei, and Apple, that are already built to keep up with 5G speeds.
