Default 4G and 4G LTE

I don't know about 5G but 4G/LTE, all cell phones can access the towers regardless of carrier subscription. Not sure about 5G.

Not all cell phones can access all bandwidth of 4G/LTE. The older models may have trouble.

When 3G goes away, my section of Winnisquam will be without coverage unless I am on WIFI. 3G bandwidth can 'bend' around hills and obstacles while 4G/5G needs a direct line of sight. When Comcast provide coverage in my section, folks with newer phones picked up Comcast 4G/5G. I have an older (2013) HTC that works quite well for me. I have no intention of spending big bucks just to have cellular coverage.
