The deals are still pouring in for Cyber Monday, and you can find excellent deals on 5G handsets and contracts.

5G is the next generation of mobile network communication with speeds up to 20 times faster than regular 4G networks. 5G lets you stream videos and calls in 4K, with a lower latency, allowing faster video loading and smooth mobile gaming.

While you can buy certain 5G phones SIM-free, you would still need a 5G-compatible SIM to use the phone on 5G networks. Also keep in mind that 5G phones have a 5G modem inside, which means 5G phones can handle 4G networks and below, but 4G phones cannot handle 5G networks. For more about 5G see our explainer What is 5G?
