No 4g on Voxi SIM

Hi all,

 

I switched recently from an O2 sim as they tower near me was broken and I couldn't get any data service, it would work but was very slow. 

 

I first bought a Voxi SIM from CO-op and found I was unable to get 4g to work, only 3g, I went through several rounds with a chat advisor and went through APN, etc etc and they eventually sent a new sim. When I got that sim I registered it separately as I realise the first time I didn't pick the deal with unlimited video, i'm having the same issues again now however, I can get 3g however when I switch to 4g it shows as 3 bars and the 4g icon however nothing will load, it just gets stuck part way and eventually says not connected to the internet when I try to load a website etc. the APN settings are correct and iv looked around to see if I could find a solution for this but no good. I am without wifi currently after moving house and im in need of more than 3g speeds if I can get them. I'm using an iPhone 11 Pro, so no 5g ability.

This sounds more of a network issue rather than anything else @Rosaliek34567 .  The best thing here is to follow the self help and give an example of the issue from the link below, complete the pro forma copy and paste the results back giving the Social Team something to go on they will be straight back to you. Network Issues 

 

You can try refreshing your network settings following the information from Apple Refresh Network Settings Also try updating the SIM on the network by completing a manual roam.  Not quite sure how this is done with an Apple device but you should be able to go to connections > networks > complete a manual scan and select any other network , when it kicks you out, reselect Vodafone.  Further information here: Device Guides

I'd this happening everywhere you go too ?

Do you know if the Voxi customer support team have reset / flushed your account which removes you from the network and then reconnects you.

As a process of elimination can you try your sim card in another phone and then another sim card in your phone  ?

Samsung Galaxy s²² Ultra 256gb Phantom Black.
