I noticed 5g on my pro max today.... speedtest shows 14.7Mbps down and 2.87 Mbps up. So that's kinda rubbish

The GSMA royally fecked up the 5G protocols, just because you’ve got a 5G icon doesn't actually mean you have a 5G connection. It’s likely you were still connected to LTE, but the cell you were connected to is capable of 5G but it isn’t active.

This article explains it:

Basically three 5G icon states should really still be 4G.
