Confused about SIM & eSIM

Great Neighbour / Super Voisin

I got a regular SIM. Am I able to get a 5G/4G plan?! Or will I need to get an eSIM to get a 5G/4G plan?!?! I think I can with a reg SIM but I'm not 100% sure! 


Please and thank you!

HI @Bobkat you can use either

but if you are unsure what is eSIM, then that mean you don't need eSIM, leave it with physical

Both the Physical SIM and the E-SIM has 4G/LTE/5G. I suggest that you check your phone to find out if it is 5G and E-SIM compatible. Best of luck and welcome to Public Mobile!!

Both will give you 4G/LTE/5G. Only difference is SIM is a physical SIM and eSIM is an electronic SIM if your phone is compatible with eSIM.

Mayor / Maire

All sims have access to all plans and all networks. I recommend physical sim cards with PM, as esims are new and there are still issues with them. Physical sims give you more control and flexibility.

Yes a regular SIM card will work fine.  Enjoy the service!
