Tesco Mobile 5G

Tesco Mobile is a Mobile Virtual Network Operator (MVNO) which currently uses O2’s infrastructure and spectrum. It doesn’t currently offer 5G but if and when it starts it will almost certainly continue using O2’s network and spectrum for that. However, that’s yet to be confirmed.

When will Tesco Mobile launch 5G? 

Tesco Mobile hasn’t said when it will roll out a 5G service. That’s in part because it’s reliant on O2. Since it uses O2’s infrastructure it can’t launch 5G until O2 does (or until it switches network partner to one that has a 5G service). We know that O2 will start rolling out 5G in October 2019, so Tesco Mobile 5G might arrive soon, but it could equally launch a lot later than O2 5G.

Which cities will get Tesco Mobile 5G first?

Tesco Mobile can only launch 5G in cities and other locations where O2 has 5G coverage. That network has revealed some of the first places it will launch 5G, but head over to our guide to O2 5G for the latest updates.

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

At the time of writing probably, as few 5G phones are available, though many more will be available soon.
