I downloaded and installed the app. It's a "fake"..it pretends to switch to 4G...says 4G...but my connection speed is still squat. Of note, I don't know how this works but installation of the 5G tower has killed my "bars"...my cellular reception is 1 bar in my apartment now but for the past 4 years, been full bars.
5G utterly sucks.
So, this fake app...any real ones that actually change the band?
It's not fake. A bad signal from your closest tower is still a bad signal regardless of the network type.
5G or 4G won't matter if you are not getting a good signal. We can only let you know of the options to try. We aren't miracle workers, and we aren't your service provider. Don't get pissed at us just because we didn't "fix" your problem. All it means is that your issue is beyond our capabilities to help.
Now it's time to take your grievance to your service provider. By either talking to them, or switch carriers.
I will tell you that I have similar issues with AT&T at my house which is in a relatively rural area, but bigger suburban areas and one city are only 5 minutes away. And I have plenty of towers around me since I'm technically still within a "metropolitan" area. Yet, I still have weak patches everywhere. But if I travel just a bit down the road from those patches - suddenly get screaming speeds. And the bars don't even change much.
We are all just regular phone users like you. We share our experiences when we can. But what works for some don't always work for others. You don't have to be so sensitive and take everything so personally if you don't get the expected results. Not every answer given around here works for me either.
