What’s the difference between 4G LTE, 5G Nationwide & 5G Ultra Wideband?

4G LTE and 5G for coverage you can count on

Our award-winning 4G LTE is the broadest coverage out there. It’s all you need for pretty much anything you want – from texting to hotspotting. 5G Nationwide runs beside 4G, so you can stream faster, even in crowded places.

5G Ultra Wideband for added speed & performance

High-performance 5G Ultra Wideband, rolling out first in major cities (and more places soon!), offers game-changing benefits like speeds up to 10x faster than what you have now. It’s the ultimate experience and it’s included with Visible+.

Frequently asked:

Visit our help center for more.

Short answer: it depends on your location and device. You’ll need to have a 5G compatible device to get 5G coverage. Check out our latest 5G assortment at visible.com/shop/smartphones/5g. And of course, you’ll need to be in an area with 5G availability.

*In times of traffic, your data may be temporarily slower than other traffic.

Compatible Apple users: You'll need the most up-to-date iOS software and carrier bundle for your device before you can experience 5G.

Compatible Android users: Once 5G is available on your device, connect to WiFi and go to Settings. Then, click on Software Update and select Download and Install to install the upgraded software.

Blade X1 5G, Samsung Galaxy S20 FE 5G, Motorola one 5G UW ace, and Samsung Galaxy A42 5G users: Your phone will automatically work with 5G after purchasing it from Visible, but if you aren’t seeing the 5G icon while you’re in a 5G area, please check and make sure you have the latest software bundle.

Nope! 5G is included in our plan.

Visible offers two types of 5G service: 5G Ultra Wideband and 5G Nationwide. 5G Ultra Wideband is our fastest 5G. Compared to typical 4G speeds, it runs up to 10x as fast, and responds quicker. Coverage is now expanding to more parts of the country (see map above). 5G Nationwide runs alongside 4G LTE, and delivers a similar experience to our 4G LTE network to provide a widely available 5G network that offers convenience and reliability. Only Visible+ provides access to both 5G Ultra Wideband and 5G Nationwide. The $30 Visible plan provides access to 5G Nationwide only.
