Virgin Mobile 5G

Virgin Mobile is a Mobile Virtual Network Operator (MVNO) which uses EE’s 4G mobile network. It’s likely to continue using EE’s infrastructure for 5G too (if and when it offers 5G), but that’s not yet confirmed.

When will Virgin Mobile launch 5G?

Virgin Mobile hasn’t revealed any 5G launch plans yet, but it theoretically can launch 5G now as EE already has done. However, Virgin Mobile may equally be waiting a long time though depending on what agreements it makes with EE.

Which cities will get Virgin Mobile 5G first?

Virgin Mobile can only launch 5G in cities where EE has already launched it. At the time of writing, EE has brought 5G coverage to parts of Belfast, Birmingham, Cardiff, Edinburgh, London and Manchester, with another 20 scheduled launch locations. Check out our guide to EE 5G for up to date information on coverage.

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

Probably at the time of writing, as right now there aren’t many 5G phones. Many more are on the way though, so you'll have plenty to choose from soon.
