I just got a 5G capable device. Do I need to upgrade my plan to be able to get 5G (I can't see any good available plans at the moment to upgrade to)

I semi progressed an upgrade earlier and the process kept asking me for my address. Isn't the upgrade instant on my current SIM? I escaped my London flat for the lockdown

You just need a new 5g SIM card as all tariffs are now 5g capable.

If you choose to upgrade online, you'll need to request a new SIM or you call get a new SIM in any O2 store.

Thanks noted. I wanted to avoid switching the SIM but seems there's no alternative.

Not unless your SIM was issued within the last 12 months or so.....
