5G - the service map says it is in my area now but who has it?

Or more precisely when will people who have the Ultimate Oomph bundle sim have it enabled?

It had better not just be for people who used Virgin Media finance to buy a handset from them.

What service map are you looking at? The one on the Virgin Media website doesn't list 5G yet

It was definitely VM website as it said what VM sim plans were needed 

Showed 5G and said current,  there was also an option for coming in 3 months to be displayed. 

 

I will find it

Looks like they are doing as planned and going with Vodafone. 

212Mbps is the best I've had so far

Where did you find that - I can't see it linked from any of the main pages on the website.

I'm assuming all other services on the SIM will move to Vodafone as moving out of 5G will cause the call to drop if you change networks.

That could be the problem in why "it's out there" when it shouldn't be...

VM may think people use menus from homepages in the website design...  very Nokia Symbian era when it is all about the Iphone era and search engines to get somewhere...

There is another half written web page going around which I have reported but has never been removed.
