NEWS PROVIDED BY
Sky Mobile is launching 5G connectivity on its network from today, 16th January 2020. The launch of 5G offers great value to new and existing customers, as it is available free for any customer on Sky’s free loyalty programme, Sky VIP.
It will initially be available in 20 cities and towns across the UK, including London, Edinburgh, Belfast and Leeds, with plans to roll out to a total of 50 UK destinations by summer 2020.
5G Pricing on Sky Mobile
Sky Mobile customers who are with Sky VIP can get 5G for free, with nothing to pay on top of Sky Mobile’s existing tariffs, which start from £6 a month for a 3GB data plan*. For those who want more data for 5G browsing and streaming the 9GB plan is only £12 a month. This offers great value for anyone wanting to get a faster mobile connection without paying a premium.
The full range of Sky Mobile tariffs, up to 25GB per month for data-hungry customers, can be found on Sky Mobile’s website. All plans come with Unlimited Calls & Texts at no extra cost, and Sky TV customers can stream unlimited sports, movies and TV shows through Sky’s apps without using any data.
5G phones on Sky Mobile
Sky Mobile has a range of 5G ready phones, including the Samsung Galaxy S10 5G, Samsung Galaxy Note 10+ 5G, Samsung Galaxy A90 5G and more to launch in future. Prices start from £28 a month for the Samsung Galaxy A90 5G, from £46 a month for the Samsung Galaxy Note 10+ 5G or £48 a month for Samsung Galaxy S10 5G – all include 3GB data and 5G for free. Full pricing is given in the pricing table below.
Get more from 5G on Sky Mobile
Sky Mobile’s existing Swap and Watch features are now even better with 5G. Swap lets Sky Mobile users upgrade to a new handset whenever they like, without having to wait until the end of their contract – so they can instantly upgrade to a 5G ready handset to enjoy our 5G network. Watch allows unlimited streaming of TV and movies through Sky apps without using data, so mobile users can stream content faster than ever before over 5G with minimal buffering.
5G on Sky Mobile offers the fastest ever download speeds, giving customers an amazing mobile viewing experience when streaming high-quality Sky movies, TV shows, live sports, or kids’ programmes on Sky’s apps.
Paul Sweeney, Managing Director of Sky Mobile, said,
“We’re excited to be launching superfast 5G on the award-winning Sky Mobile network, and even more excited to be offering it free to all Sky VIP customers. Sky Mobile is the ideal choice for anyone who wants a faster mobile connection and great value.”
How to join Sky VIP
New and existing Sky Mobile customers can join Sky VIP on the My Sky app by simply logging in with their Sky ID and tapping the VIP button. It’s free to join, doesn’t affect their contract, and offers exclusive benefits, plus access to exclusive screenings, sports events, Sky VIP experiences with sports stars and celebrities, and more. Customers not signed up to Sky VIP will get 5G free for one month and then pay £5 a month after that or can join Sky VIP at any time to get 5G for free.
How to get 5G with Sky Mobile
To get 5G, customers need a 5G ready phone and to be in a 5G coverage area. Customers can check if their area is covered by entering their postcode or location here. They can then add on 5G to their current Sky Mobile plan.
To celebrate the launch of 5G, Sky Mobile is running a competition from 16th January – 5th March 2020 with Sky VIP to give customers the chance to win a Samsung Galaxy Note10+ 5G and a Sky Mobile data plan for 1 year. To be in a chance to win customers can enter via the My Sky app.
