Plusnet Mobile is a Mobile Virtual Network Operator (MVNO) which uses EE’s 4G mobile network. It’s sure to continue using EE’s infrastructure if and when it offers 5G too, since it’s owned by BT (which also owns EE).
When will Plusnet Mobile launch 5G?
Plusnet Mobile hasn’t said anything about a 5G launch yet, but it won’t be able to launch 5G until EE does anyway. EE for its part has revealed that it will launch 5G in the second half of 2019. However, Plusnet Mobile may well not get 5G until a while after that.
Which cities will get Plusnet Mobile 5G first?
Plusnet Mobile can only launch 5G in cities where EE has already launched it. Right now of course there is no commercial 5G network on EE, but the company has confirmed that it will bring 5G to parts of 16 cities this year. Take a look at our guide to EE 5G for full and up to date information on its launch.
Will I need a new phone or device to use 5G on Plusnet Mobile?
Yes, you will. And while EE has already announced that it will stock a variety of 5G phones, Plusnet Mobile is currently just a SIM Only network, so unless that changes, you’ll have to source a 5G handset from elsewhere.
