Best answer: No, Visible only supports the Verizon LTE network. Luckily, Verizon's LTE network provides fast speeds and great coverage, meaning most people will have plenty of speed even on LTE.
Committed to LTE
Visible was one of the first carriers to ditch 3G and analog connections for all of its phones. All Visible phones and plans use LTE for data, calling, and texts. With this setup, it seems like Visible would be primed to be one of the first carriers to hit 5G but the main drawback is the Verizon network. AT&T, Sprint, and T-Mobile have all built 5G networks either fully or partially on lower, LTE-like, sub-6 bands. This means they offer similar coverage to that seen on 4G LTE.
Verizon has yet to build any sub-6 5G and has been fully committed to building its 5G on the ultra-fast mmWave spectrum called Ultra Wideband. This type of 5G is great for speed and capacity but falls short in coverage with an mmWave tower needing to be deployed on pretty much every city block it covers. Though Verizon has been making great headway with this network, the very nature of it makes it slow to deploy.
Visible has yet to announce plans to support Verizon's 5G network but it isn't impossible. If you have Verizon Ultra Wideband coverage in your area and want to try out the network, you'll have to pay for Verizon postpaid. Visible customers will need to use the LTE network for now but in most situations, this network is more than quick enough.
Unlimited data and hotspot
Visible gives you unlimited data on Verizon's LTE network with an unlimited 5Mbps hotspot. You can even save more if you bring up to four lines.

These are the cheapest phones to try out 5G
5G is still pretty new and so are its phones but the prices have started to come down. These are the cheapest 5G phones you can buy right now.
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.
