Wait, is that from 4G?  I've never gotten that fast on 4G from Three.

Just be aware that if you're happy with a credit check and a 12 month contract, you may be able to find offers from Three directly at the same price which includes 5G.

It's not a 12 month contract, no credit check and the discount applies for 12 months.

30 days PAYG offer, cancel whenever you want to.

Exactly my point. If you're happy with a 12 month contract and credit check, Three might be better as they include 5G.

But 5G works on Smarty, why would I want a 12 months contract?

Which is why I asked if that was 4G as the Smarty website does not mention 5G.

Smarty website is a bit of mess to be honest:

Interesting they mention VoLTE as I was disappointed the voice port on my router doesn't work on Three which supposedly it should if VoLTE is supported.

5G proof, this is on internal antennas:

I went to Three on a 12 month contract in order to get a real IP address instead of CGNAT.  Starting early this year Smarty's CGNAT started changing IP addresses on a second by second basis and quite a lot of web sites didn't like that.

I held off from a contract for a while as our address officially doesn't have 4G coverage from Three, so if it stops working I don't really have any comeback.  However I've been on 4G now for over two years so a 12 month contract was worth the risk.  It's a price saving as well.
