Could be a silly question, but should I not be able to get 4G where I am right now (Feilding)

The phone I have supports LTE (band 3) 1800 MHz.

Tower about 50 meters from my work.

Phone is set to prefer 4G networks etc.

Presence of a licence does not necessarily indicate service (there can be a delay). Normally I'd say to use the official coverage map, but it seems to be broken at the moment!

Bear in mind 1800 was used for GSM as well.

Having a license does not necessarily mean a service will be active.
