I have very slow 5Ge connections. Is there a way to toggle to a 4G LTE connection manually?

5Ge is LTE. That little "e" stands for evolution, AT&Ts marketing departments idea of a good way to market LTE-A.

Hello again,

So 5g works if you are short-range from the router or gateway. I suggest using wifi most the time, but in the event that your phone absolutely has to... I believe it will go to 4g if that connection would be better.

Yes. Though it may be dependent on your carrier, your phone should switch to 4G lte if it is the better option.

I thought so too, however it doesn't that's why I'm inquiring about how to do it manually.
