Is att 4g on iPhone a code word for no data service

When LTE connectivity is poor on my iPhone X, the network status changes to 4G which pretty much equals turning data off as nothing works. I remember the days of 3G which worked pretty good. My question is what exactly is 4G supposed to mean as data doesn’t flow at all?  Why not just leave it as LTE with no bars instead of 4G?

It’s a hardware connection.  3g/4G bands still connect for talk and text even if you can’t get data.
