On my OnePlus 7 I can force creating a 5GHz Hotspot (internet share). How can I force my Pixel 4 XL to do the same?

When you're in your hotspot settings, press advanced and set the AP band to 5GHz preferred.

All 5Ghz devices can support 2.4Ghz networks and 2.4Ghz can reach speeds of 450 Mbps or 600 Mbps. On 4G data connection, you cannot even reach those speeds so 5Ghz seems pointless for a hotspot. Is there a specific reason it has to be 5Ghz?

But you don't need 5Ghz to game? As I mentioned " 2.4Ghz can reach speeds of 450 Mbps or 600 Mbps", so unless you have a mobile data connection faster than that there is not need for 5Ghz. A 2.4Ghz could easily serve the fastest speed 4G can reach.

But 5 is a higher number than 2.4, so it must be better......
