Lycamobile 5G

Lycamobile is a Mobile Virtual Network Operator (MVNO) which uses O2’s infrastructure and spectrum to provide 3G and 4G. It doesn’t currently offer 5G but will likely continue to use O2’s infrastructure for that if and when it starts.

When will Lycamobile launch 5G? 

Lycamobile hasn’t said when or even if it will launch a 5G service. But as long as it remains partnered with O2 it won’t be able to offer 5G coverage until O2 does. That means we could see 5G from Lycamobile soon, as O2 plans to start offering it from October 2019, but on the other hand Lycamobile might launch 5G a lot later than its network partner, so don’t count on a launch this year.

Which cities will get Lycamobile 5G first?

O2 has named some of the first places it will launch 5G in, which is relevant because Lycamobile can only offer 5G in locations where O2 does (unless it switches network partner). Check out our guide to O2 5G for the latest updates.

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

Few 5G phones are available right now, so unless you have one of them then yes, you will.
