5G on the boom! Mobile Purple Network
On the Purple network, we support some of the most popular 5G Android phones. We will provide an update as soon as 5G becomes available on the Purple network for iPhone. The following Android phones are compatible with Purple 5G:
- Samsung Galaxy S21 SE
- Samsung Galaxy S20 FE
- Samsung Galaxy S20 SE
- Samsung Galaxy Note 20 SE
- OnePlus 8
While 5G speeds are not supported on a Purple compatible iPhone, they are expected to be in the future.
You can still use your 5G compatible iPhone on our Purple network. You will also still receive a fast, high-speed internet connection, and when 5G is supported on Purple for iPhone your device will automatically be able to take advantage of the upgrade.
What is a 5G compatible phone?
A 5G compatible phone is a device that includes brand new technology, allowing it to take advantage of the latest iteration of the mobile network.
“5G wireless technology is meant to deliver higher multi-Gbps peak data speeds, ultra-low latency, more reliability, massive network capacity, increased availability, and a more uniform user experience to more users.”
Is 5G offered everywhere?
Not yet, but it's growing constantly. Remember, if you're located in an area that does not offer 5G, your 5G compatible phone will default to the next speed-tier (for example LTE or HSPA+) automatically.
