Sky Mobile 5G

Add 5G for free and enjoy faster speeds on Sky Mobile.

Download HD movies and stream your favourite shows on apps like Sky Go with 5G faster than ever. In the future, as our 5G network gets even better, you'll also be able to enjoy a more reliable connection and less lag (delays).

Get 5G ready

All you need is:

  • 5G network coverage in your area.
  • A 5G-ready phone (with 5G enabled and the latest software update from Sky).
  • 5G add-on.

Important: We don't recommend you add the 5G add-on to your 4G phone, as this will affect the quality of your 4G services. Once it's been added to your SIM plan, it can't be removed until your next bill date and your 4G services will be affected until then.

Check 5G coverage in your area

Our 5G network is now available in a number of different towns and cities. Coverage won’t be available everywhere across these towns and cities to begin with.

To see where you can get 5G speeds, use our coverage checker ( The best 5G service will be available outdoors.

We’re continuing to roll out our 5G network to even more towns and cities, so keep a look out.

In areas that don't have 5G, you’ll automatically switch to the normal 3G/4G network.
