About / Contact Us


5G.co.uk has been on the internet since August, 2014, and it’s one of four websites operated by our company. The site is dedicated to helping consumers better understand the UK’s mobile networks, find the best mobile deals, and stay up to date with the latest industry happenings – particularly those related to 5G.

This is all overseen by Kevin Thomas, the director of 5G.co.uk, who has been running the site since its launch in 2014. He’s aided by our editorial manager, James Rogerson, who has worked with the company for over 10 years.

Combined, our management team has over 35 years of experience in the telecoms industry, and we’re backed up by a similarly experienced team of technical writers.

Why use our site?

5G.co.uk is designed to be the only destination you’ll need when buying a 5G phone, SIM, or broadband package. It’s home to intuitive, in-house price comparison tools that make it easy to find the best possible deal across all mobile networks with a single click.

We’re also truly independent, meaning that you can be confident these really are the best deals, as we stay neutral to the networks.

But finding a great deal means knowing what to buy in the first place, and that’s where the other part of our site comes in – with our expert, regularly updated guides and numerous product reviews, you can learn everything there is to know about the latest devices and 5G networks and technologies, so you can make an informed purchasing decision.

How we make money?

We get a small commission for any purchase you make from clicking through the deals on our 5G price comparison site, be it for a smartphone, a SIM Only plan, or any other device, such as a home broadband router.

This commission doesn’t affect the price you’ll pay – you’d be charged exactly the same if you went direct to the retailer’s website, and in some cases you’ll actually pay less here, if we have an exclusive deal or an exclusive ‘flash sale’.

Also, any refunds or returns are handled directly by the third-party retailer that you purchase from, so your rights aren’t affected by using our website, we simply help you find the best deals.
