Best 5G Mobile Phone Deals
5G is the new kid on the block and with it comes Superfast internet and the promise to be able to do so much more with your mobile device. The speed of the 5G network outperforms even that of what is available with home broadband connections and as such this makes it a significant step forward to mobile technology. Whilst 5G speeds are not yet available everywhere in the UK, the upgrade to the network is currently underway and is expected to cover a significant proportion of the UK by the end of the year.
Most of the major Network operators are rolling out 5G with EE and Vodafone leading the charge. Because 5G is a new network technology you need a mobile handset that can handle the 5G speeds. This means that most users will require a handset upgrade in order to be able to take advantage of this network. The major manufacturers are all bringing out their latest and greatest mobile phones that are 5G capable and we look at some of the best in the business.
