Frequently asked questions
Plusnet offers a few SIM-only plans with different allowances of inclusive minutes, texts, and data.
What network does Plusnet Mobile use?
Plusnet Mobile uses the EE network, which offers the widest 4G coverage in the UK.
PLusnet Mobile is an MVNO (mobile virtual network operator) and therefore needs to use another mobile provider’s network to carry its calls, texts, and data.
Is Plusnet Mobile 4G?
All Plusnet Mobile plans are 4G as standard. This means you won’t have to pay to ‘upgrade’ to a 4G plan like you do with some providers, and downloads will complete more quickly. You’ll also be less likely to have to put up with buffering when streaming video.
What is coverage like?
Around 99% of the UK population is covered by Plusnet Mobile’s 4G service. Its 3G service – which is what you’ll get if you can’t get 4G – covers approximately 98% of the UK population.
These coverage percentages are ‘population’ based and not ‘area’ based, so it’s possible that some less populated rural areas of the UK will have no Plusnet Mobile coverage whatsoever.
You can use the Plusnet Mobile coverage checker to see what coverage is like where you are.
