Don't rush out to get it. According to this article,"full next-generation 5G"will not be available until 2022, which is probably the same for all the networks.

Early adopter's cashing in on the number of 5G phones that will soon be available.

 

Personally I'm not rushing to change my phone; I'm happy with it's speeds, love the quality of the picture streaming films and TV and, even if I was so inclined, I can't afford to pay off my phone this early in the conrract.

 

However, if O2 do what a network operator did in Australia, offering customers who purchasef the 4G Galaxy S10+, a new 5G Galaxy S10+ in exchange, I wouldn't say no. But seriously, can't see O2 doing that. Think of the money they'd lose Horrified

 

But I can dream joy

No need to change anything 4G is much better in this area. No need to do anything as good 5G coverage won’t happen for at least another 5 years I bet

It's a little sad that EE seem to be first in any innovations whereas it used to be something O2 were good at.

Well they’ve got deep pockets  Smiley Indifferent

 

I don’t think any network can hope to compete with them, never mind O2. It wasn’t always the case, but EE are very good nowadays.

 

They might be expensive for some people, but sometimes you get what you pay for.

That's ery true. I have an EE sim and their 4G speeds are much faster than O2 in my areas of travel.

In the right conditions it will generally outperform my fibre broadband, which is mad really. But saying that, 4G doesn't always give you a reliable connection, and it will struggle in situations where too many people are trying to connect at the same time. I was at the Principality Stadium recently, and it would take ages to load a web page. Apparently, 5G has greater bandwidth and is more capable in those situations.

 

Mind you, they've only got four 5G devices that are available for pre-order:
