Iphone 8 switches from LTE to 4G - No Internet

 My company recently switched me from T-Moble to ATT.   I live in downtown Portland Oregon, the coverage seems to be okay but my phone keeps switching from LTE to 4G.   This happens a lot when I go to the center of my building or use the elevator.  When I leave my building my phone remains on 4G but does not have any data service.   I generally notice this because I'm streaming music and it will just stop.  i'm forced to put my phone into airplane mode every time I leave my building because it takes so long for my phone to switch back to LTE.     I remember having this issue years ago on my iPhone 5S when I was on ATT.  Is there any fix for this?  Can I force my phone not switch to 4g?

Hi, @pdxdw2,


We understand how important it is to keep your internet connection while on the move. Try resetting your settings. Go to Settings>General>Reset>Reset Network Settings. This will refresh and reconnect to your data. You may need to reconnect with your WiFi networks after, but nothing else should be touched.
