Last updated:

Tesco Mobile has launched its 5G network in 24 towns and cities across the UK and customers can sign up to the 5G service at locations including Coventry, Glasgow, Leeds and London.

Tesco is launching with competitive pricing, with its SIM-only 5G contracts starting at just £15 a month, while Pay monthly contracts start at less than £30 a month with 5G. The 5G packages are slightly cheaper than most competitors, but they don’t offer as much data, which will could be an issue for users.

The network says it will switch on 5G in a total of 50 locations in time for summer, including Bournemouth, Cambridge, Milton Keynes and Wolverhampton.

“We’ve taken the time to be in a position to offer great value tariffs, making 5G accessible to everyone – all with the added perks of being part of the Tesco family.”
