Is 5G Icon Correct?

The icon at the top of my phone shows 5G. But, when checked with the Speed Test app the results are reported as LTE.

After I install the Google Carrier Services app, Speed Test reports the results as 5G and the icon on my phone is 5G.

Since I installed beta, my 5G speeds are very slow. So I deleted the Google Carrier Services app.

So... what's up with the differing signal indicators and the slow 5G speeds?

S21 5G on TMobile

I've read articles where Verizon has the fastest, followed by AT&T, and then T-Mobile / Sprint

The speed tests I've performed all show a 5G signal (Consumer Cellular provider using an AT&T network SIM card)

Prior to beta, my TMobile 5G was always faster than LTE and the phone icon matched the Speed Test results. These issues cropped up with beta.
