Giffgaff to roll out 5g sooner rather then years down the line and being behind in the mobile pack. put more investment into faster speeds etc
Please vote if this sounds a good idea only my second idea lol and share my post please
Nice idea but how much of a realistic possibility it is,I wont hold my breath.
I'm all for keeping ahead of the pack and 5g would be great. However what I would really like first is to be able to mobile signal and 4G or any g in my local area and at home as there seems to be lots of dead spotsspots my local area. Im 15 miles outside Camvridge where the service os good but outside that its very patchy.After that is sorted I'd support 5g. But why would I want giffgaff to invest (my and your money)in something when I haven't even got what I'm paying for now?!
up to 02 i think
Even worse! They should use the subnetwork of giffgaff as 5g testers , O2 benefit from the involvement.
once 02 roll it out giffgaff will most likely take the option but until then its not in giffgaff hands .
Plus would you pay extra for it ??
Yes I pay extra it will soon come down in prices plus giff gaff are a mnvo/budget network they carnt charge that much more
I am not sure that we need this that quickly but it is interesting to note that other providers aren't charging more for it. Now, that woudl be an attractive option to me!
I am very impressed with giff gaffs announcement about the increased data they are offering, if introducing 5g to giff gaff would mean that we can't have great amounts of data at such a great price then I think I would rather giff gaff not rush into the 5g business until necessary. As long as 4g works well, is there any desperate need for 5g? I know it's good to keep up with the times but giff gaff is well known for their cheap deals and I think a lot of people would like things to stay cheap.
I think this is great 5g is needed now and not just in big cities
All in good time. It's not a super practical request at present, you need a brand new 5G capable phone £££ and the current package on EE only has one capped at 10GB of data per month. Which if you can get ~250mbs without too much bother then you're going to burn through it quite quickly! (As the BBC found out on their first 'live' using it). If you want 5G now I suggest you jump over to another provider and hope you live in one of the cities it's being rolled out to!
