How cheap is 5G?

If you think a 5G deal costs a lot, you might be surprised. Currently, 5G is included as standard on most pay monthly plans – so you likely won’t pay a penny more than you would for a 4G deal. 

The only caveat is that you need a 5G-enabled smartphone and will need to live in an area that has 5G switched on to actually get any use out of it. But with 5G now available in a fast-growing number of locations, and on most new smartphones, it’s increasingly likely that you’ll be able to get access to a low-cost 5G deal. 

Depending on the type of smartphone you want to get on your pay monthly plan, the cost of a 5G deal will differ. But as an example, even the iPhone 14 can be picked up on a 5G pay monthly plan from around £34.99 per month with just a £129 upfront cost (even down to £15 per month for a higher upfront cost).

5G iPhones

Apple was relatively late when it came to 5G, launching its first range of 5G-enabled smartphones in 2020. That was the iPhone 12 range, which included the iPhone 12 mini, iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max. 

The next year, Apple followed on by including 5G with its iPhone 13 mini, iPhone 13, iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max releases. 

2022 has seen the release of the iPhone 14 range, as well as an an updated iPhone SE, with an A15 Bionic Chip to keep it in line with the latest technology, improved durability, and of course – 5G.

That covers the entire iPhone range, from budget to midrange to premium. Whatever level of iPhone you want, you’ll be able to get one with 5G on a great pay-monthly deal.

Is there a 5G iPhone?

Apple was one of the last smartphone manufacturers to release a 5G phone, but since the iPhone 12 they’ve been firmly in the 5G race. The latest series of iPhone - the iPhone 14 range, are all 5G ready. So that’s the:

iPhone 14
iPhone 14 Plus
iPhone 14 Pro
iPhone 14 Pro Max

Each of the excellent new iPhone 14 range is 5G compatible. So whichever one you pick, providing you’re on a 5G data plan and in a 5G area, you will be able to connect to superfast 5G speeds.

How much data do I need for 5G?

A superfast 5G plan does tend to use more data than a 4G plan.

However, a lot of networks, such as Vodafone and EE offer unlimited data plans, so you can use as much 5G as you need to without worrying about your data allowance running out. Check out a selection of our unlimited data deals below:
