What is the difference between 2G, 3G, 4G and 5G?

2G is our classic network for calls and texts: 

  • Supports web browsing but sends emails at slower speeds than 3G or 4G. However, it’s quick and reliable for all other basic phone functions
  • You’ll see it as 2G, 2.5G or E on your device

3G is the third generation of mobile phone network: 

  • Supports calls, texts, web browsing, email, apps, video streaming and file downloads when you don't have access to Wi-Fi or Wi-Fi hotspots 
  • Connection speeds can vary depending on location 
  • You’ll see it as 3G, H or H+ on your device
  • HSPA+ (H+) is our high-speed 3G network, available in some areas and dependent on the quality of coverage

4G is the latest generation of our mobile network:

5G is the latest generation of our mobile network:

• Has faster mobile speeds to increase the speed at which content loads
• Reduces buffering, so there’s less of a problem
5G also has a larger capacity, so you’ll be able to connect – even when everyone is trying to make a call.
