5G: Connectivity through devices

What devices support 5G?

We already have a small range of 5G devices to connect you to our superfast 5G network. To make sure you have the widest range possible, we’ll be adding to the range as more devices are released.

Remember, our 5G devices will work across both our 5G and 4G networks whereas any 4G devices will only have access to our 4G network.

4G and 5G devices versus plans

You can’t connect to the 5G network on a 4G device. You’ll need a 5G device to connect to the 5G network. This is because 5G devices require additional technology, such as 5G chipset, to work on a 5G network.

Can I buy a 5G device elsewhere and connect to 5G on EE?

Sure, if you buy an unlocked 5G-compatible device, you can get an EE 5G SIM-only Smart plan to connect to our superfast 5G network.

When will EE have an Apple device that supports 5G?

At the time of writing, Apple haven’t yet announced a 5G device. Although they’re famously tight-lipped about their new releases, Apple normally announce their new iPhone models at the beginning of September. 

Why EE

4G in more places than any other network

We're making sure that we’re giving you the biggest and best 4G coverage.

Call and text with WiFi

No signal? No problem. WiFi Calling lets you talk and text even if there’s no mobile signal.

Investing in our network

We're spending £1.5 million a day improving our network's speed, reliability and call quality.

And ready for the future

We're always one step ahead. We introduced 4G, 4G+, double speed 4GEE and now 5G to the UK.
