Why choose Three 5G home broadband?
Three has put a real focus on its 5G home broadband service, so much so that it launched said service before it even made 5G phone and 5G SIM Only plans available.
Plus, Three has more spectrum that’s ideal for 5G use than rival networks, which could help it offer greater speeds and a more reliable service.
Three also offers unlimited data, so you don’t need to worry about how much you’re using your broadband, you can just get everything connected and stream, download, browse, work and play as much as you want.
And with Three supplying a router that supports up to 64 simultaneous connections, you really will be able to get everything in your home online.
What are the advantages of 5G home broadband?
5G home broadband is the most exciting thing to happen to broadband in years, as it offers loads of benefits over fixed line broadband and especially over 4G home broadband.
For a start, it’s fast. As in very fast. Slow speeds meant that 4G home broadband never really took off, but 5G home broadband can easily match or exceed most wired connections – including superfast fibre.
So even if fast fibre is available to you, 5G home broadband might be a good alternative for reasons that we’ll get into, but if you’re somewhere with slow fixed line broadband but that has 5G coverage, then 5G home broadband could be a no-brainer.
Speed aside, 5G home broadband also has the advantage of being fast to get installed. Once you’ve placed your order you simply wait for your router to arrive then plug it in. And Three offers next working day delivery, so you can potentially get online under 24 hours after you place your order.
That simple setup is possible because there’s no need for a landline or fibre cables, so no need to call an engineer out. And because you don’t need a landline, you have the option to get rid of yours, thereby saving lots of money on line rental costs.
All of this makes 5G home broadband a great long-term option, but also ensures it’s a top choice if you only need a short-term connection (assuming you opt for a short-term plan), as you can get up and running fast, so could use it while waiting for a fixed line connection to get installed or repaired, for example.
Three 5G coverage
You can expect Three’s 5G coverage to expand rapidly, which means that even if you can’t get Three 5G home broadband now, you probably will be able to eventually – with large towns and cities likely to be first in line. Check out our Three 5G coverage page for full details.
Three 5G speeds
Three’s 5G home broadband speeds average upwards of 100Mbps for downloads, with peak speeds of 1.6Gbps. That peak is far faster than you can expect even on fibre broadband – though your actual speed will depend on things like coverage and how many devices you have connected.
