Lots to get excited about as Three announces its plans for 5G

Commenting on Three plans for 5G Ernest Doku, mobiles expert at uSwitch.com, says: “Three is the latest network to unveil its plans for 5G services and there’s a lot for consumers to get excited about.

“The network is offering 5G to all of its customers at ‘no extra cost’, meaning 4G users can enjoy the new service at the same price they are currently paying.

“The deal makes Three cheaper than EE, which charges a premium for its next-generation service. And the provider, which won the uSwitch award for best roaming, has set itself apart from Vodafone by not capping the speeds of its services.

“Three’s offer of an unlimited data SIM-only deal starting from £22 a month is excellent value, but consumers will need to factor in the cost of buying a 5G-ready handset.

“Three is promising it will have the UK’s fastest 5G when it launches later this year, but time will tell whether consumers will be happy to wait that long, especially since EE and Vodafone have their networks live already.”

About us

Launched in September 2000, uSwitch is an online and telephone price comparison and switching service, helping consumers get a better deal on gas, electricity, broadband, TV services, mobiles and personal finance products including mortgages, credit cards, car and home insurance. Last year we saved UK consumers over £278 million on their energy bills alone.

Customers can sign up to an account that automatically monitors the energy market and notifies them when they can move to a cheaper tariff, while broadband customers can conduct a speed test to find out how fast their broadband is and identify the best deal for their postcode.

The multi award-winning 'Switching Made Simple' app allows customers to compare energy, broadband, credit card, mobile and SIM-only deals – and uSwitch also has a UK contact centre manned by energy and broadband experts. Customers can post their latest energy bills to FREEPOST USWITCH to receive a free call back and be guided through the comparison process, or they can email customerservices@uswitch.com with their postcode and usage details.

uSwitch is owned by ZPG, which operates some of the UK’s most trusted digital brands that help empower smarter property and household decisions including Zoopla, Money, PrimeLocation and SmartNewHomes.
