Boost Mobile will include 5G on prepaid plans

Boost Mobile will include 5G access as standard from 4 April 2023 on the Boost Prepaid Mobile Plans. Use is capped at reasonable download speeds.

You don’t need to do a thing, and there’s no change to your current recharge. Capped download speeds will take effect when you make your first recharge from 4 April 2023.

How do I test what speeds I’m getting on 5G?

Test your mobile connection and speed performance.  This test will not impact your data allowance. Please make sure Wi-Fi is turned off when testing. To access 5G, you’ll need a 5G-compatible device in a 5G coverage area.

5G coverage is still limited

Boost uses the Telstra Retail network – read Telstra’s Retail Vs Wholesale mobile plans – the catches you need to know. Boost is not charging a premium (as Telstra does to its direct clients) because 5G coverage is very limited. You can check coverage here.

Thanks Boost!
