The 5G plans have a higher speed cap, higher data allowances and unlimited data at reduced speed which will benefit you whether your device supports 5G or not.

Plans here are all about speed. You can get 5G speed and 4G speed connecting to both the 4G LTE network or 5G network. Then it's a decision of amount of data and the value you place on that cost.

@Kithtyr 

Yes you can. The 5G, 4G, and 3G plans are really just about the speed cap that PM puts on your device when connected.

If you’re on a 5G plan you can get speeds up to 250Mbps

If you are on a 4G Plan you can get speeds up to 100Mbps.

Most modern devices can achieve speeds higher than 100Mbps while on LTE so if your device and connection strength allow’s you will be able to see higher speeds on a 5G plan despite not having a 5G device.

Hi @Kithtyr 

Of course. I have a 4G phone and on a 5G plan. I'm in it for the amount of data over speed.

Here is the latest offer worth looking at.

I suppose you could but that would be defeating the purpose of getting a 5g plan, no?
