Its an unlocked cpe pro not a locked one I think api is disabled on Three 5G broadband if I try EE, Vodafone or 02 it might work if the other networks haven't disabled the api.

When I go to

I get this

There is only one 5G band in use in the UK - n78 - there is no other band to change to... Plus, band changing software can't control 5G anyway, only the 4G bands. You're not going to gain anything with trying to lock bands!

Zakir, as Gavin said you can only lock bands in 4G, not 5G as there's only 1.
That said, Huawei authentication sometimes can be funny. If you install Huawei's AI Life app, does it log you in with the password you currently have? Try to change the password again from this app, see if HuaCtrl works after.

When I log into the Al life app its fine and the router interface via 192.168.8.1

I know I can't change 5G bands as there is one but want to change 4G bands as 5G anchors on 4G.

This is the speeds I get using P40 lite get lower speeds on my 2nd generation Firestick and Honor 9X.

Coverage checker says 5G not available yet customer service did say by 13th February I should be getting it officially.

So what bands are you connected to at the moment and/or what bands does the mast currently have?

As you're almost seeing 200Mbps then I assume at least B3+1 with 256QAM, - it could be 3+1+32, however 32 usually comes with the 5G upgrade, which you say isn't there yet.

When using 5G (n78) the H112-370 can only aggregate that with one 4G band. Fortunately, that can be any of Three's 3, 1 or 20 bands, however it will mean that whatever 4G aggregation you're seeing at the moment won't get 5G just added on top. It'll reduce the 4G to one band, but the addition of n78 should far exceed the loss from the additional 4G band(s).

From the 4G CellID that shows you're already connected to Band 3 for 4G - the band that Three has the highest capacity in (15mhz width) - so you're not going to get any higher speeds unless/until Three increases its density of 5G sites in your area.
If you locked to any other 4G band (1 or 20) there'd be less spectrum available for aggregation (10mhz and 5mhz respectively).
