slow 5G speeds.... this is dumb

This is pretty much unusable.  In some areas in Denver cricket is fine.  But in a lot of areas with 5 bars and "5g" it is totally unusable.




I have reset my network settings.  I have warrantied my phone.  I have made sure my plan is setup as the 60 dollar a month extra plan.  




This is really slow, mostly unusable. I call support, they tell me everything looks ok on their end, I do a test while still on the phone, and whala, it's working.  Not great, 20mbps, but usable. As soon as I hang up the phone, it's back to dial up speeds.   Seriously, stuff doesn't load.




I can't deal with this.  Especially for the price I'm paying.  I never had trouble like this with boost mobile.  Never.  Or AT&T...same towers as AT&T???  I'm not buying that.  




I'm already looking to port back to boost with some free phone they have.  




Someone from cricket needs to follow up and fix this.  I wanted to go into my settings and disable 5G and do LTE only.  But the dream 5g doesn't have that options.

Dude, cricket service is great. Sure they don’t baby you but that’s life 😁. 5G isn’t available everywhere so how could you blame them for your choice in phone like whaaaa?

I feel your pain. The Dream 5 g is Crickets phone! That's how he can blame them! The dream is a nightmare, I am on my 3rd, by way of warranty replacements, same problems as before and no solutions. They won't replace with a different brand, just keep sending one defective phone after another.
