  • We are upgrading our network to the latest 5G network to serve you better.
  • That means your data will be much faster, and your signal will be stronger.
  • So that you can use the new network, you will need to change your SIM to 5G also.
  • We will be providing a new 5G SIM for free, with the same number.
  • Just text “activate” to 2366.
  • We will send you a number password through text.
