No 5G on Apple iPhone 12 Pro Max in Toronto?

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?

Hello @MichealYYZ

I haven't tested it with Rogers yet. However I am with another company and I see 5G all the time other when I go into work ( store inside a condominium where I lose service).

I'll test it out and see!

Are you in TO?

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

Hi @Mikec69,

 

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:

 

  • Your device is connecting to an HSPA+ or 4G LTE network, as that network’s signal is stronger.
  • You’re in an Extended Coverage area.
  • You’re roaming outside of Canada.
