Anyone who owns the Chinese version of the mi 11 ultra can test it out?

I got 5g enabled in the settings, confirmed selected in the dialer menu *#*#4636#*#* top bars say 5G and an HD symbol on its left which I confirmed is Vo-lte...

Issue is it's not really 5g but LTE or 4g, how I came to this conclusion was by running various apps/ simultaneous 5g speed tests on both this phone and an older Huawei phone I got..

Mi 11 ultra caps at 140+- dl speeds
Huawei caps at 500+- dl speeds

Provider runs 5g on band n78 which is supported by both phones..

Can running the Eu ROM fix this issue for me?

    n78 is 3.5 GHz 5G band (is wiiide band, is not a 600hz band lmao) Your phone preferred to stay connected to 5G bands more than 4G bands.
    Try to switch to 4G network preferred
    And check it out your actual speed on 4G

    (Huawei supports more bands than xiaomi...due to different processor which is Kirin)
