Getting ready for 5G! EE 5G Smart SIM Only and Handset Plans, plus Home too!

With the launch of 5G, EE is launching a new range of 5G plans, giving you the ability to make the most from your 5G experience with great benefits, value, and access to the latest mobile technology. 




From today, EE customers can pre-order a cutting-edge 5G smartphone on EE’s new 5G Smart Plans. Plans start from 10GB (£54 per month) and extend up to 120GB (£74 per month).

We have also launched plans with Swappable Benefits for both 4G and 5G customers, and today we're announcing two new additions to the range:

New for next season, as an exclusive swappable for 5G customers, will be access to the HD HDR version of the BT Sport App, worth £15 per month – offering more vivid, life-like colours, and greater detail in darker or brighter areas of the picture, with casting to your TV - great for football fans when wanting to watch the big game with friends!

From August, we will be launching the new Gamer’s Data Pass (worth £7.99 per month), available as a Swappable for all 4G and 5G Smart plans. We are also introducing the gaming data pass to cover all the data you use on a wide selection of games and services including Pokemon Go, Harry Potter: Wizards Unite and other exciting gaming titles, as well as to stream on Twitch. 

All 5G customers will get two Swappables from a choice of five – including the BT Sport App HD HDR access for the best possible video quality, Gamer’s Data Pass, Music Data Pass, EE Video Data Pass, and Roam Further Pass – which you can swap in or out anytime you want. If you take the 120GB plan you'll get three Swappables, worth up to £33.99 per month.

5G customers can upgrade your smartphone any time, with EE Upgrade Anytime as standard.

And if you're a 5G customer you'll be able to access EE Service packs, helping you to keep their 5G smart phone in tip-top condition for no extra cost. EE service packs provide:


  • £10 towards one of our premium cases or screen protectors to keep your device protected
  • An annual device and EE mobile account MOT
  • An extended device warranty for the lifetime of your contract


All these benefits are available for just £5 more per month than 4G handset plans.



5G SIM only plans

Alongside EE smartphone plans, we are also rolling out the UK’s first 5G SIM only plans, offering Swappable benefits, inclusive Service Pack benefits, and a range of great 5G data allowances starting at 20GB per month (£32 per month) and rising to 100GB (£52 per month).


All the latest 5G devices

It is EE’s ambition to offer unrivalled choice, with the best content, smartest devices, and the latest technology, through best in class partnerships. As part of this, EE is partnering with some of the world’s leading manufacturers to offer the UK’s largest range of 5G smartphones.

Available across a range of different price points, EE is offering the latest cutting-edge smartphones including Samsung (Galaxy S10 5G) as well as UK exclusives with Oppo (Reno 5G), LG (V50 ThinQ) and One Plus (7 Pro 5G) – providing consumers with unique access to the world of 5G.

5GEE Home and 5GEE WiFi

EE is launching the UK’s first 5G home broadband, providing customers unparalleled choice in home connectivity without the need for an engineer installation. Faster than superfast fibre, EE’s 5G home broadband service will offer consistently reliable speeds – perfect for gaming, streaming, video calling, and downloading in 4K.

5GEE home broadband will launch in June, and plans will be revealed soon.

And for those who want the best broadband connectivity on the go, EE is launching 5GEE WiFi with the HTC 5G Hub, which will be available with an upfront cost of £100 and with 50GB of data per month for £50 per month, or for £75 per month with 100GB of data per month.

Re: Getting ready for 5G! EE 5G Smart SIM Only and Handset Plans, plus Home too



I just pre-ordered a 5G S10 from Samsung UK.


I am currently on a 2 year SIM-Only contract 60gb for £30 per month.


Are you saying I will need to change my contract in order to unlock 5G?

@liamfoneill  Yes, you will need to upgrade to a 5G SIM only plan. If you call EE they will be able look at your options.

How competitive are you plans though?


You may be the first to release 5G but I fear this would lead to Vodafone and Three under cutting you
