How to Turn on 5G on iPhone 11 in 2024 (Get Lightning-Fast Internet!)

Welcome entrepreneurs! As a fellow small business owner, I understand the need for speed. In 2023, 5G is rolling out nationwide, unlocking transformative internet speeds on our iPhones.

In this article, we will be discussing the step-by-step instructions on how to turn on 5G on iPhone 11. Let’s have a look!

Overview of 5G for Entrepreneurs

For context, 5G delivers peak download speeds up to 4 gigabits per second (Gbps) based on the underlying network technology improvements.

To put this into perspective, the average 4G LTE speed in the US is just 30 megabits per second (Mbps). So 5G represents over a 100x speed improvement!

More importantly, 5G reduces latency to roughly 1 millisecond. This responsiveness opens the door for groundbreaking applications like self-driving cars, virtual reality, real-time video collaboration, and more.

As small business owners, we can leverage 5G to take productivity to the next level with seamless cloud access, lag-free video calls, and lightning-fast file sharing from anywhere.

Carriers like Verizon, AT&T and T-Mobile offer premium 5G plans specifically tailored for businesses. Plans start around $20 per month for 5G access. Verizon‘s business unlimited plans are a popular option with 50GB of high-speed 5G data.

Checking iPhone 11 5G Compatibility

Before upgrading to 5G, confirm your iPhone 11 model supports 5G connectivity:

  • iPhone 11: Supports both sub-6GHz and mmWave 5G
  • iPhone 11 Pro/Pro Max: Supports both sub-6GHz and mmWave 5G

You can verify this by going to Settings > General > About. Check that your model number matches one above.

Also take a moment to review 5G coverage maps for Verizon, AT&T, and T-Mobile specific to your area. Radar signal strength makes a difference!

Activating 5G on iPhone 11

Here are the step-by-step instructions to activate blazing fast 5G:

  1. Open the Settings app
  2. Tap "Cellular"
  3. Tap "Cellular Data Options"
  4. Tap "Enable LTE" to turn on 5G (overrides LTE/4G)
  5. Select "5G On" from the menu

That‘s all it takes! Your iPhone 11 can now discover nearby 5G networks and connect at up to 4Gbps.

You can also select "5G Auto" and your iPhone will intelligently fall back to LTE when 5G signals are weak to preserve battery life.

Optimizing Your Connection

To maximize 5G speeds for business use, I recommend the following network setting tweaks:

  • Enable "5G Standalone" for multi-gigabit peak speeds
  • Disable "Allow More Data on 5G" to avoid high data usage
  • Select 5GHz WiFi bands (less interference)
  • Try using a 5G mobile hotspot for more flexibility

If you experience issues connecting to 5G networks, standard troubleshooting steps apply:

  • Restart your iPhone
  • Toggle Airplane mode on/off
  • Reset network settings
  • Contact carrier support

Be patient as 5G rollouts continue through 2023 – but enjoy the speed boost! Let me know if you have any other questions.

Wishing you tremendous success!
