Dropping 4G in less than a minute.

Awol

Chaps, I’m using an IPhone 6 with a Smarty sim. Smarty piggy back off the 3 network, but give you lashings of data (30gb per month and free texts and calls, all for £10 per month).

It all works fine except that I’m permanently on 3G when they say 97% of their network delivers 4G.

If I click on the aeroplane thingy to disconnect Wi-fi and mobile data, and then click it again to reconnect, I get 4G for about a minute, then it reverts back to 3G.

Anyone with any ideas as to what might be wrong?

Does this happen regardless of where you are physically? By which I mean happens on multiple towers or just one location.

On Android it's possible to select your connection type. Assume your iPhone will have similar.

Known and ongoing issue with 3, OP. A guy from work was having very similar diffs.

I don't know about 4G, but since I got the covid-19 vaccine my 5G reception is amazing.
