Speed Guide



Speed Guide for our RED Unlimited Plans

This speed guide is for RED Unlimited Super and RED Unlimited Giga Pay monthly plans launched on the 10th January 2019, for the avoidance of any doubt this speed guide does not apply for any other Pay Monthly plan tariff. The Speed Guide for informational purposes only and its aim is to give you a clearer explanation on the speed experience of RED Unlimited Plans. Remember that the actual speeds you reach will continually vary depending on many factors such as device capabilities, location, network congestion, network coverage and if you are roaming.
