Tesco Mobile 4G is already available in many parts of the country, and we’re working to roll it out across the UK.
Find out if you’ve got 4G in the places you go to most with our coverage checker.
If it’s not in these places yet, please check back soon, as our 4G network is growing all the time.
4G is now available at no extra cost on all 4G-ready pay as you go phones. If you buy a data bundle, you’ll get 4G as soon as you buy it.
Or if you don’t want to buy a data bundle you can call us on 4455 from your Tesco Mobile phone and we’ll switch 4G on for you. Using data without a bundle costs 10p/MB on 4G or 3G.
To see our latest range of 4G phones go to our shop. We’ll be adding more 4G ready phones in the near future, so check back here for more information.
And as all our 4G phones are on Anytime Upgrade, it means that you can move to the latest smartphone whenever you want.
The iPhone 5 can’t connect to our 4G network, but you’ll still get great 3G coverage on this phone.
If you want to use 4G you’ll need to upgrade to a 4G ready phone.
The iPhone 5s and 5c both work on the Tesco Mobile network. If you already have one of these phones with us and would like to add 4G, log in to your online account and add a 4G bundle.
Yes, the iPhone 6s, iPhone 7, iPhone 8, iPhone XR, iPhone XS, iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone SE 2020 are available to buy with a 4G data bundle. See our Shop for details.
If you find that you do not want to access 4G data, you can turn it off in your phone settings.
Your calls will be carried over 2G and 3G, as they are today. 4G’s just for data.
Existing customers can call our upgrade team on 4422.
What’s more, with Tesco Recycle you can get cashback for your old phone.
