Re: 5G

Be nice if they did even as a bolt on.
I'm frequently frustrated by the '5G NSA Disconnected' message on masts I hit. I assume it's saying there is 5G but not to Plusnet customers.
EE only seem to offer 5G to their contract SIM Only or contract handset customers ATM which works out much more expensive to Plusnet's offering.
We do at least get 4G+/CA I guess. I get around 100Mbps down from 1 mast, 120Mbps sometimes.
VoLTE and WiFi Calling would be nice too 😉

Re: 5G

1p mobile are an EE MVNO which support what you are asking for:
5G & WiFi calling ( I guess they also suport VoLTE).

Re: 5G

There is no 5G in coverage map with 1p mobile but I checked EE website it does have 5G but 1p mobile only show 2G/3G and 4G no 5G?

Re: 5G

You make a valid observation re the 1p mobile coverage map.
A question for 1p mobile I guess.

Re: 5G

@RichardB I decided to join EE on 12 months contract as they do have 5G but disappointed with Plusnet lack of 5G.
