Xiaomi Mi 8 and LTE

Hello,

 

Hoping for a little help.  I just purchased a Xiaomi Mi 8 global version (actual version not just the global ROM). I am only getting H+ and 3G on the phone. It is compatible with LTE and all bands on Fido network, so I can't figure out the issue. I am not able to update the APN settings (it is greyed out). Has anybody run into this issue? Any help would be appreciated.

Found a link and a person who created an app to fix this issue, and I now have 4G! I removed my SIM, sideloaded the APK for the app, created a new APN, put my SIM back in, went ito the APN settings and chose my new APN and voila... 4G!

Problem appears to be solved!

Amazing. Thanks so much for sharing the apk option. I couldn't figure out how to change the APN settings and it was so frustrating. But now getting LTE speeds and it works!
