The evolution of mobile technology has brought us to our fifth generation of wireless technology. With 5G, Boost will bring our customers blazing-fast, high-capacity mobile technology that will enable the next wave of mobile wireless innovation. To do this, Boost will leverage our 2.5 GHz spectrum and we will deploy a radio technology called Massive MIMO, which is capable of delivering much greater capacity than current LTE systems. The combination of these tools will allow Boost to offer significantly faster speeds, increased network capacity and an overall better experience than before for our wireless customers.
Yes, you will need a device that’s capable for the 5G network. At this time, we offer the Samsung Galaxy S20 5G, a 5G capable phone that’s ready for the 5G network where available. More 5G capable devices will be added to our product lineup in the coming months.
We expect faster download speeds (average and peak) than LTE initially (on capable devices). Performance will continue to improve as we optimize the 5G network and add new capabilities.
In addition to having a 5G device within a 5G area, you must have Voice over LTE (“VoLTE”) enabled on your phone. In addition, coverage is not available everywhere. Please check the coverage map for detailed coverage information in your area.
VoLTE (Voice over LTE) is the next generation of voice service for your phone. VoLTE will direct your voice calls over to Boost’s newly advanced LTE network instead of our standard wireless voice network. VoLTE will provide superior voice quality and allow you to browse the Internet and use data-driven apps while on a call. VoLTE must be enabled on your device to experience these new benefits and our 5G network where available.
Simply put: talk and surf the net at the same time!
If VoLTE is not already enabled on your phone you can turn VoLTE on by doing the following: VoLTE is a simple toggle switch in Settings. To Enable, Go to Settings > Connections > Mobile Networks. Set the VoLTE toggle to On.
There are no additional charges for 5G service. However, you must have a 5G capable phone.
No, you can still access all of the great services that were available on your account or that you would like to add to your account while on the 5G network.
5G service is currently not available in Mexico and Canada.
