LycaMobile 4G

Any journalistic (sic) response on the above from the Mobot team? Quite a discussion on HUKD but no mention here.

It actually works and doesn't cost anything extra.

I'm not sure why HUKD says that iPhone 5S is not supported. It should work just fine on iPhone 5S. It will not work on iPhone 5.

Love the "sic" :p

Anyhoo, I know they operate in Ireland, but that is about all I know. It's mostly for int'l calls, isn't it?

I wouldn't say they are for international calls. Like any other MVNO Lyca has very attractive international calling charges. However, they are not better/cheaper than Mundio or GiffGaff.

Irish Lyca pretty much only talk about their Int'l rates http://www.lycamobile.ie/en/
Their slogan is "Call the World for Less"

Same slogan all around the world. In UK their international rates are not better than competition.

It looks like Mundio, Lebara, Lyca and GiffGaff have similar prices for international calls.

Well, it's not like I left Germany to talk to anyone back there :p

Huh?
I thought LycaMobile will use EE, hence 4G should work on iPhone 5.
Never heard of Mundio, will check that out also

I don't have any confirmation that Lyca is using or will be using 4G EE network. All announcement aside, until I see my phone on 2600Mhz band Lyca is not using EE.

Hi do anyone can let me know? that my iphone 5s doest not support 4g for Lycamobile network, when i tried with other network like o2 and EE it seems to work fine. is it lyca not offered 4G yet or the apple phone does not support for Lyca.

I have Lyca 4G on band 20 (800Mhz). Make sure you have 4G turned on and try enabling roaming. Maybe phone thinks that 4G band is from different provider.

AhmadCentral  Jun. 18, 2014 at 09:57

Lyca use o2.

Therefore use band 20 and doesn't work with the iPhone 5. Will work with the 5C and 5S.
