What is a 5G compatible phone?

A 5G compatible phone is a device that includes brand new technology, allowing it to take advantage of the latest iteration of the mobile network. 

“5G wireless technology is meant to deliver higher multi-Gbps peak data speeds, ultra-low latency, more reliability, massive network capacity, increased availability, and a more uniform user experience to more users.”

- Qualcomm

 

Is 5G offered everywhere?

Not yet, but it is spreading quickly. Remember, if you're located in an area that does not offer 5G, your 5G compatible phone will default to the next speed tier (for example, LTE or HSPA+) automatically. 

Red Pocket Mobile's 5G compatibility:

GSMT Coming soon Yes!
