Apple users will benefit from these 5G plans next year, the MVNO confirmed

Lyca Mobile has launched 5G at no additional cost for all UK customers that use Android smartphones.

It means that 5G will automatically be made available in all data plans, for no additional charge, with the service starting from today (December 8).

The service will also extend to iPhone users from next year, the MVNO has confirmed.

Lyca Mobile is using O2 as its network partner to rollout the technology in the UK, which is an extension of its long-standing relationship with the operator.

The 5G rollout comes as the MVNO announced a £250m investment as part of a three-year strategy to transform the business into a digital service provider.

Lyca Group CEO Navanit Narayan said: “We believe our customers should be able to take advantage of the benefits of ultra-fast next generation 5G connectivity, which is why we are excited to offer our customers using 5G enabled Android devices this service in the UK and US at no extra cost.

“The pandemic has expedited the emergence of a new set of consumer mobile behaviours and customers increasingly expect more diverse, differentiated, and value-added services – all at competitive prices.”

Narayan adds that the service will extend to further markets in the future.
