Best answer: No, Mint Mobile doesn't offer 5G support in its plans. Some users, however, are reporting 5G connectivity with T-Mobile 5G compatible phones and Mint Mobile is selling 5G capable phones on its site.
Thank the T-Mobile network
Mint Mobile is based on the T-Mobile network and currently uses the full LTE network for its phones. While many T-Mobile based MVNOs have started to offer 5G connectivity to customers with compatible phones on the nationwide 600MHz 5G network (Google Fi is an MVNO that uses T-Mobile's network and has already begun to enable 5G on compatible phones), Mint Mobile has yet to make that commitment.
There is no doubt that Mint Mobile will eventually support 5G, especially given T-Mobile's continued development of its next-generation network. While T-Mobile's full three-tier network might still be a ways off, support for 600MHz 5G on band n71 might be very close.
Many Mint Mobile customers, including YouTube Creator Stetson Doggett, are reporting getting 5G connectivity with 5G capable phones like the Galaxy S20 and the OnePlus 8 Pro. While the 5G symbol popping up on the top of your phone is exciting, the speeds on this network won't be significantly faster than LTE for most people so it's not worth betting on just yet. Until we know for sure just how Mint Mobile will handle 5G, you should expect to be using the LTE network most of the time.
Phone service up to 12 months at a time
All plans come with unlimited calls and texts with a choice of 3GB, 8GB, or 12GB of LTE data. You can save money by buying six or 12 months at once.

Which MVNOs are best for hotspot data?
MVNOs are offering more data than ever and many of them are letting you share it with your other Wi-Fi devices. If you need a backup plan for Wi-Fi or just spend a lot of time away from public access points, you can get connected with a prepaid carrier.
