Sky Mobile is a Mobile Virtual Network Operator (MVNO) which uses O2’s infrastructure and spectrum. It doesn’t currently offer 5G, but it has confirmed that it will continue its partnership with O2 for that.
When will Sky Mobile launch 5G?
Sky Mobile can’t launch a 5G service until O2 does but it has confirmed that it will launch 5G at the same time, which could put it ahead of most MVNOs. O2 for its part has said that it will start rolling out 5G at some point in 2019, so we should get Sky Mobile 5G soon.
Which cities will get Sky Mobile 5G first?
Sky Mobile can only launch 5G in cities where O2 has a 5G service. That network has revealed that the first places it will launch 5G will be Belfast, Cardiff, Edinburgh and London, so those should be the first places that Sky Mobile has 5G too, but check out our guide to O2 5G for all the latest information.
Will I need a new phone or device to use 5G on Sky Mobile?
Yes, as at the time of writing there aren’t any 5G phones available, but that will soon change. Sky Mobile itself will probably sell some too, though it hasn’t confirmed which yet.
