4G is the next step up from 3G, giving you mobile internet speeds up to five times faster than before. In fact, even the average home broadband speed can't match 4G. That means you can stream movies in HD without buffering, play online games in real time and upload photos to Facebook instantly.
The 4G network we use already covers huge parts of the country and by the end of the year we're aiming to cover 98% of the population, so you'll be able to experience faster internet almost anywhere.
If you do find yourself somewhere that we haven't brought 4G to yet, don't worry, you'll still have access to our Advanced 3G service, the fastest 3G connection in the UK.
Our network uses the fastest version of 3G ever. Known as Advanced 3G, it gives impressive speeds that'll let you download your favourite movies in a matter of minutes, and make smooth, HD video calls over Skype or Facetime.
The great thing about Advanced 3G is that it already covers 98% of the population. So wherever you go with your iD plan, you'll get fast and reliable internet.
