Asda Mobile : 5G Coverage and Launch

Asda Mobile is a Mobile Virtual Network Operator (MVNO) which currently uses EE’s 4G mobile network. The probability is that Asda Mobile will continue its relationship with EE for 5G, but this needs to be confirmed by both parties.

When will Asda Mobile launch 5G?

Asda Mobile has made no comment with regard to its launch plans. However, EE has now launched a 5G service in six cities, with more locations to follow.

Despite this, we wouldn't expect Asda Mobile to launch 5G until sometime in 2020 or possibly even 2021 depending on how quickly EE spreads 5G coverage across the UK.

Which cities will get Asda Mobile 5G first?

Asda Mobile can only launch 5G in cities where EE has already launched it, which currently means parts of Belfast, Birmingham, Cardiff, Edinburgh, London and Manchester. Take a look at our guide to EE 5G Coverage for up to date information on that.

Will I need a new phone or device to use 5G on Asda Mobile?

Yes, a new mobile phone will be required unless you've already upgraded to a 5G handset. EE for its part already stocks a number of 5G phones, but it will be up to Asda Mobile to decide when and what phones it will sell.
