Speed’s how fast your connection is. Measured in Mbps (that’s megabits per second), the higher the number, the faster the speed, and more importantly, the faster and smoother things happen online on your phone. Think speedier video streaming, better audio quality, quicker downloads, faster social scrolling or crisper video calls.
What speed you need depends on how you use your phone. We’ve got three speeds on our unlimited data plans to pick from to ensure you only pay for what you need. Align how you use your mobile data to our breakdown below and find your match. Please remember that your actual speed can change here and there due to things like device capability, location and network congestion. But rest assured, we’ll strive to give you your chosen speed whenever we can.
