    Try going into settings, then more networks - from there select mobil e networks. Now select network mode & click on LTE.

    I set my G900P to LTE/CDMA but LTE only comes up if the Signal is there & strong - otherwise it reverts to 3G. This might be your case. your phone might not have the correct band either _ just a guess...

    OK, first off where are you using your g900f? If it does not have the correct LTE radio bands for your area you won't be able to use it
    That's what its sounding like - your phone just can't access the 4g band you're trying to connect too.

    the problem is your phone may not be able to connect to that certain band of telcel 4G LTE while the other phone can. that is to say the other phone has the correct radios for that LTE band while the S5 does not have the correct radios and cannot pick up that LTE band.

    I think you won't be able to change this unless you get a phone that can connect to that band.
    if I were you I'd call my phone company to make absolutely certain that this is correct.

    I don't believe that would help in this case
    A custom ROM can't change the hardware in your S5 mini.

    It looks like you'd have to sell your S5 mini & purchase one that works on your carriers LTE network.
    That's why I'd give them a call, they should be able to tell you if your phone works on their LTE network & if not then what are your other options. I understand you want to use this S5 mini but I don't think its going to work on that LTE specific band

    The g800f lte works on b1, b3, b5, b7, b8 and b20 bands. Telcel 4g lte works on b4, so the s4 mini g800f its not compatible

    The G800F model is the worldwide version whilst the G900M is for South America and is designed for their networks. See...Samsung Galaxy S5 mini - Full phone specifications

    As stated by irak rodriguez1, the G900F is not compatible with the Telcel LTE network.
