4G/5G explained

4/5G explained:

We’ve recently introduced 5G speed which will compliment 4G.

We already used the fastest 4G network in the UK. 4G provides greater download speeds and reduces the latency (the time it takes to load) for things like real time gaming. 4G is sufficient for everyday usage: streaming videos, social media, emails, and general browsing.

We don’t think you should have to pay extra for 4G/5G, so it's included in all our bundles.

We automatically enable the latest generation on Ecotalk SIMs, so you just need a 5G ready device to use it.

The current 5G doesn’t travel far, it can’t travel through obstacles very well, however the 2G & 3G reframing process over the next decade will bring new possibilities to 5G as it starts to use spectrum which travels further.

How can I get 5G?

To ensure you can use 5G data, you’ll need a 5G ready device. You’ll also need to make sure you’ve downloaded all the latest software updates on your device. When you're in a 5G area, you should see the symbol displayed at the top of your device screen.
