Hello @Bewinxed 

 

There are some existing threads that discuss using a 5G connection as a hotspot.

https://eu.community.samsung.com/t5/galaxy-s20-series/can-t-change-hotspot-band-to-5ghz. 

And one device guide suggests...

  1. Go to Settings.
  2. Tap Connections and then Mobile Hotspot and Tethering.
  3. Click on Mobile Hotspot and then tap on the three dots in the upper righthand corner.
  4. Tap on Configure Mobile Hotspot. ...
  5. Select Use 5GHz band when available or 5GHz preferred.

There is some further suggestions via a Google Search too.


Daily Driver > Samsung Galaxy s²² Ultra 256Gb.
Samsung Gear s³ Frontier Watch.
Samsung Galaxy Watch⁴ Classic.

The advice I offer is my own and does not represent Samsung’s position.
I have no affiliation with Samsung.

As i said, the option to switch bands is greyed out.
