I upgraded my phone to Samsung ultra s20 and it shows a 5g connection at the top of the phone but I'm still only getting 4g speeds when I ran a speed test app it showed it was connected to lte and not 5g as the phone stated any idea how I can get the correct data performance on my phone

What speeds are you getting

The highest I have had where I live is 23mb but its usually between 8 and 12mb had 5g connection
once when I was outside and about 400 meters from my house

I have just out north north s into the coverage checker and it states that you will get 5G outdoors.

Some speedtest apps don't show 5G correctly, it's the speed that matters, not the icon. As long as it says 5G on your phone then you're using 5G.

I did another speed test it shows 5g in my house at the top of the screen but says I'm using lte in results I have highlighted it showing the one time it shows 5g on the speed test so I known it shows the difference

I went around 400 meters away from my house where it starts to connect to 5g speeds and the colour of the 5g symbol doesn't change its like around my house its showing 5g but connecting to 4g

So I am right even though it shows 5g signal because its not coloured in its reverting to 4g so why is it doing this and how can I keep it on 5g

It's reverting to 4G because the 5G bearer doesn't meet the radio quality requirements to be added. It's a case of waiting for 5G deployment to spread.
