I wouldn't go anywhere near 5G

Do you need to have a specific phone to get 5G?

Do you need to have a specific phone to get 5G?


A 5G capable handset. Not that many around really. Galaxy S10 is getting a 5G edition I believe.
I'm looking for a new provider as my Voda SIM expires in a few weeks. But I wouldn't need all that data.

Yes a 5g enabled one like the Samsung Galaxy s10 plus 5G

Is that the Vodafone deal posted here recently? I am also at the end of my Vodafone contract but cannot move onto that deal without first porting my number onto a PAYG sim, it's just long :-(
This deal link is also showing me six months half price on 24 month contract - however, I'm a bit reluctant to sign up a 24 month sim-only plan...
Am currently with Vodafone and am very happy with the service and data speeds (92.9 Mbps download speed) but my Entertainment package has finished and retentions aren't playing ball. Am I likely to get the same speeds from Three? I actually use my mobile data even at home as our home broadband is pretty bad.

Nope, wouldn't go near three as the 4G speeds are horrendous. Might be different for 5G when they finally turn it on but we will see...

Mrs.Z this is the Voda deal here

Yes Voda are a pain for that. Easiest way, port to an ASDA PAYG mobile SIM card, wait 24-48hours then port on to your new Voda contract. Done it for 3 years now, as Vodafone cannot beat cashback deals...yes it's a faff, but for £10 after cashback, that's the cost of a single spotify subscription on its own. My Vodafone 4g speeds aren't great, but I don't, well I try not to spend an awful amount of time glued to my phone.

It all depends on your location, I have a 4G Three voice sim card with unlimited data in my 4G router, speeds are around 35mbps down and 20mbps up, better than the only ADSL connection I can get at the moment.

I am guessing a minimum topup with asda to do this?

samsung.com/uk/…5g/

The S10 5G is available just now directly from Samsung sim free, BUT it is currently either locked down to EE or Vodafone.
Not sure if this will change in Aug when Three launches their 5G service.
So i assume if you bought the EE or Vodafone version just now in advance of Three's launch you would need to get it unlocked to work with Three?

I think they can be discussed in a thread about 5G, but simply saying "I wouldn't go near 5G" without giving any reasons is the same as saying "I like turtles".

I have 3 on both my mobiles, it looks like I could get better UK coverage and speed if I move to EE BUT, firstly the cost is less, the international roaming is superb, not having to worry at all about using spotify, google maps, downloading audio tours and tripadvisor in all my recent destinations is superb. 5G being included in the future. Bonus. It'll be a while before I invest in a 5G phone.


And finally, I don't really have an issue with speeds on my mobile...I mean, what are you doing that causes stream lag on your mobile?

There are times in remote areas I have no coverage, but I struggle to believe the others would have in the remote spots I'm thinking of.

I don't live in a remote spot. Far from it. And get zero signal with three in my house or street. Signal in my village is almost unusable too.
I travel around a lot and had three, EE and O2 running simultaneously, tested all over the country. O2 had best signal overall with EE beating then in Volte provision. Three were far behind.
EE had best headline 4g speeds ( 300meg for me) with three next ( c90 Meg for me) and O2 last with c75 Meg. Using the phone as a phone is the most important part to me so using O2 and EE atm.

I know its subjective, but three coverage is behind for me.
The go binge round the world has now been capped at 19GB, used to be 30gb. I got caught out as I thought it was 30gb like i have always had and went over my limit (2 weeks holiday). I don`t remember getting any personal communicationletting me know they were lowering the go binge policy.
I still have unlimited for £19 though as kept an old contract I have had for a while now.
Argyll6826/07/2019 13:40

You Need to purchase a 5g compatible Phone

These are the current ones you can purchase from the UK from what i remember

Galaxy S10 5G ( Offered by 3, Voda, EE)
Oneplus 7 pro 5G (EE Exclusive)
Oppo Reno 5G (EE Exclusive)
Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 5g (Vodafone Only right now, but 3 is soon to add it)
LG V50 ThinQ 5g (EE Exclusive)
Huawei Mate 20 X 5g (3 currently has it but not exclusive)


Of all of these phones, I would personally go for the S10 5G, Oneplus 7 5G or Oppo Reno 5g if you have money to spend.

However the Mix 3 5g is also a great phone and the cheapest 5G device you can buy on the market. In spain its 600 euro for the 64gb variant.
Ain't the Chinese building out 5G Network? I wouldn't trust it, I'll stick to 4G, it's fast enough... well unless they do what they did to 3G and make it slower so you have to switch. The 4G we have now doesn't even exceed 3G max speeds, I remember back in the day having the same performance as now lol.

Wait so does this mean all current three Sims become 5g? Will my current unlimited 4g SIM will turn into a 5g one?
Edited by: "bbfb123" 26th Jul
It's a pretty specialised consumer who actually requires unlimited data. I used to pay for it just because I didn't like the idea of caps in principle, but found that I never used more than 2 or 3 GB and dropped it to a 4gb cap. With ubiquitous WiFi and me not needing to routinely tether I've never had an issue with this.
I love 3. They make sure the other mobile companies reduce their prices. Thanks 3 X
On it since December last year (not sure if 5G will be added) but it's a great deal. But for me personally.. using it to teather it's useless depending where you are to a pc. In barnes i got 7.1mb/s on a cheap 60p USB Wi-Fi antenna plugged into the pc.

But now... same network, same antenna... in selhurst.. I get around 260kb/s if I'm lucky

Not that specialised. I know a lot of people who hammer the data on their phone and have unlimited because of this. Lots of social media, streaming etc.
I don't have any social media accounts and never watch videos but still manage to use at least 6GB a month.

I suppose maybe if someone commutes by public transport and sit there streaming video it's going to add up pretty quick. My phone is never a streamer other than for audio, which is tiny data amounts...

Difference is they cannot go to war with us and switch it all off and spy.
I went with 24 month for £20 a month, first 6 months half price, and £75 topcashback.

I'm not overly keen on the idea of a 24 month, but meh, £20 is still competitive for AYCE everything and I'm unlikely to find anything drastically better in months 12-24 anyway.

Also, back in wap days, is designers and developers were concerned about people’s data allowances. Not so much any more. You can easily see on a lot of highly visited news sites for example, a 2-3mb payload simply to display the ads and content on their home page (plus tracking and other code) - chuck in some auto play videos or a glossy animation and you are up to 5mb for one page view. A lot of these sites have a day or so cache block. So visit that site once a day for a month and your up to 150mb. For one page of one site. It adds up
