    I am an Indian and I use a jio sim which has 4g voLTe. I want a higher internet speed so i searched it on the internet and found that changing the bandwidth will increase speed and decrease coverage. So I got the main method that go to about phone then, click five times on internal memory, then click phone information1, then change the bandwidth. See the attached picture to see which options i get. Now plz tell which one should i select?? Which one is band 40??

    You won't get any higher internet speed by fiddling with any settings on your phone
    Changing any of them will almost certainly disconnect you from your current provider.
    It is up to the network provider, what speed they offer and that depends on lots of things, including signal strength , number of other people on the same cell tower and many other factors.
    LTE is the highest speed currently offered and that is known as 4g in many countries.
    However different network operators offer a different 4g speed based on their network & the phone capabilities.
    I pay for double speed / high speed 4g in UK and in a good area I can get 50+mbs but at home and in many other places I only get between 3mb & 15 mb
    Another example, directly outside my local railway station I get 50mbs but when I move less than 400 metres & I am switched to a different cell tower, it drops to 5mbs

    Bur sir online i found that if the band is band 40 you will get high speed and low coverage and if the band is band 3 you will get low speed but high coverage. I play fortnite. My ping is high. I use mobile hotspot to play. So whenever i am playing i would switch to band 40 to get high speed and whenever i am in a train i would change to band 3 for high coverage.

    I haven't had to deal with this type of request so I will bow out but it seems that you should talk to your cell provider to make sure that a) you can do it and b) which options you can choose without causing any issues.
