I just set up my new iPhone 12 Pro Max on Rogers and I am surprised not to see the 5G indicator on the screen. Still, only the old LTE is there. I switched Voice & Data under Settings -> Cellular to 5G On, but to no avail. Is 5G coverage in Toronto spotty?
I can see that the six Rogers towers closer to my location use frequency bands in the 700, 850, 1900, 2100 and 2600 MHz. I thought Rogers uses 600 MHz for 5G, but I don’t see 600 MHz transmitters in Toronto. Strange!
Do you guys get the 5G indicator on your 12-series iPhones? If yes, is it on consistently, or just occasionally?

I believe I found out. Apparently, Rogers has not enabled 5G on non-Infinite plans.
Yes, I am in Toronto.

Welcome to the Community!
Is this specific to one location? Have you tried to reset your network settings? Ideally, if you already have an eligible device and a 5G SIM Card you should be good to go. Just as an FYI you might not be able to connect to a 5G network because:
