If you are a Lebara mobile UK customer or a someone who is thinking of joining Lebara mobile UK than it is important to understand the Lebara UK network and the Lebara coverage because it can give you an idea of what areas have 4G coverage and the areas that have no service at all.

What network does Lebara Mobile use in the UK

Lebara Mobile UK is a MVNO (mobile virtual network operator) which means it must rely on another mobile network provider to carry out its coverage.

Therefore, Lebara mobile UK uses Vodafone network, making Vodafone a MVNE (mobile virtual network enabler). Vodafone offers their network to many MVNO in the UK.

This is a good thing because Vodafone UK is one of the top four mobile network providers in the UK so Lebara customers will get the one of the best coverages in the UK.

Lebara Mobile UK being a MVNO allows them to offer you super cheap Lebara mobile UK SIM only and Lebara UK pay as you go deals because they don't have to pay to keep a network but instead pay a partnership fee to use another network.

So, while your enjoying some of the cheapest SIM only deals in the UK you can know that you have a good coverage all around the UK by Lebara mobile UK using Vodafone network.

Also, all Lebara mobile UK customers will get the same coverage as all Vodafone UK customers which is why Lebara mobile UK promises a great network with reliable and fast 4G network.


Lebara Mobile coverage Map for the UK

Most MVNO will have the same coverage as their MVNE which sometimes means that a MVNO will not have a coverage map on their website.

This means that Lebara mobile UK doesn't actually have their own Lebara mobile UK coverage map so instead you can just Vodafone's coverage checker map.

It doesn't matter because the 4G coverage Vodafone customers get is exactly the same 4G coverage all Lebara mobile UK customers will get.

However, before looking at the coverage map it is important to know the difference in internet data services. For example, 2G, 3G and 4G data technology.

2G is one of the first and oldest types of data technology which means that it offers a very slow and weak internet signal. Lebara mobile UK offers 3G and it has 99% population coverage over the UK.

3G is a lot faster than 2G however it is still very slow and it is mostly used to check emails because watching videos or streaming music you will experience a lot of buffering. However, it is still used frequently throughout the UK and the world.

4G is the most used data technology and Lebara 4G is really fast and reliable, Lebara 4G has really took advantage of the high quality and speed of Vodafone's 4G network.

So, if you are a Lebara mobile UK customer you will get one of the best 4G data technology with a high level of speed.

Therefore, checking the coverage map will allow you know what areas offer 4G coverage and 3G coverage but most importantly the coverage map will show you what areas have no service so be aware of that.


Lebara Mobile 5G Coverage in 2020

Lebara Mobile UK does not yet have 5G coverage but if you are a customer I wouldn't worry because I have a feeling that Lebara mobile UK will acquire 5G sometime in 2020.

There haven't been any plans on setting an actual date where Lebara mobile UK will have 5G but with Vodafone already having 5G technology it is only a matter of time before Lebara UK decides to go ahead and get 5G.

It did take a few years for Lebara UK to get 4G once Vodafone launched their 4G but that was a back in 2017. It is 2020 which means its a new year so fingers crossed Lebara Mobile at least start making plans about getting 5G data technology in 2020.

But for now, just enjoy one of the best 4G data technology with Lebara mobile UK 4G coverage.


Problems with coverage

However, although the Lebara UK coverage relies on Vodafone's network which in the most part is a good network there are some factors that are out of Lebara mobile UK's control that will sometimes force you to have no signal.

If you are in a really busy place the signal you will have will be really weak and slow and if you are in areas that have massive trees or in the mountains this can be an issue for your signal.

Lastly, if the weather is really bad such as heavy rain or you are in a building with thick walls or underground there is a good chance that you will experiences signal loss.

To deal with these problems try and change the environment you are in and see if that helps because most of these issues are due to where you are with your mobile phone.
