Plusnet Mobile 5G

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 is theoretically in a position to launch the service since EE now offers 5G. However, Plusnet Mobile still may well not get 5G for a while yet, especially as it's positioned as a budget network.

Which cities will get Plusnet Mobile 5G first?

Plusnet Mobile can only launch 5G in cities where EE has already launched it. At the time of writing that means parts of London, Cardiff, Belfast, Edinburgh, Birmingham and Manchester can get it, but the company has confirmed that it will bring 5G coverage 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?

Probably, as there aren't many 5G phones available yet, and while EE already stocks a few, Plusnet Mobile is currently just a SIM Only network, so unless that changes you’ll have to source a 5G handset from elsewhere.
