What does 5G mean for me?

The potential of 5G is enormous. 5G capabilities are expected to unleash a wave of innovation. Like previous wireless technologies, 5G will change our lives in ways we haven’t even considered.

Before 5G, 2G allowed us to text, 3G brought us smartphones, and 4G lets us stream video from anywhere. What might 5G bring?

In the future, 5G will open the world to:

  • Self-driving cars
  • Improved mobile multi-player gaming
  • Interactive personalized AR/VR experiences

When will 5G be available?

Cricket is invested in giving its customers the best Network experience available. Cricket’s network will support 5G.

  • 5G will be a more responsive network that is offered nationwide.
  • 5G+ is our name for 5G areas that are expected to provide even faster 5G service in select areas around the country.

Cricket’s 5G service and our first 5G device, the Samsung Galaxy S20+ 5G, will be coming soon.

Until then, Cricket customers can take advantage of our fastest 4G LTE speeds on our $60 unlimited plan.
