eventually those 5g customers will be paying extra for that service. I think I higher throttle with volte needs to start coming into play soon. the reception seems to be getting worse. PM needs to compete with lucky mobiles wifi calling and esim

@pizzer83  5G is only available in a handful of high density areas (cities). It will be a very long time before we see 5G nationwide. From what I have read the coverage range from 5G towers as it it stands today is somewhere around 250-500 meters. I think you will be on throttled LTE for a very long time.

Technically your phone will ping the nearest tower and use it but even if you connected to a 5G tower you wont notice a big speed difference. You connect to the same Telus towers as other users even the LTE ones. Your speeds just throttled to 3G although you won’t notice a difference unless you constantly run a speed test which you shouldn’t. 5G’s just hype for now and remember we’re all using PM for the amazing deals and network. Also I wouldn’t use 5G if it was available because LTE/4G works just fine for me if I was with another carrier.

I think that 5G will be enabled only for Telus customers, Public Mobile will stay the same with 3G.

@pizzer83  Not for another couple years. 5G is still in its infancy stage.

One thing everyone needs to be aware of is how slowly things change at Public Mobile. There are no plans to implement 5g network service any time in the near future. I also wouldn't expect anything to change speedwise unless either Chatr or Lucky makes a speed change.
