Numerous users have reported that 5G is no longer working on their Pixel 7 Pro after installing the March update. 5G was once considered a luxury but has now become a normal functionality for many devices and OEMs no longer treat it as a USP for their devices. With that said, the devices from Pixel have always found themselves in the rough water with regard to this fifth iteration of wireless network connectivity.
The entire 6th series was missing the 5G support for months but finally, they did receive it with the March update. On the flip side, the same update seems to have broken the 5G support for the Pixel flagships! Numerous users have voiced their concern that 5G is not working on their Pixel 7/Pro right after installing the latest March update. If you are also in the same boat, then this guide will make you aware of the plausible reason for the same. Follow along.
Why is 5G not working in Pixel 7 Pro after March Update?
The culprit behind this issue is the latest version of network operator settings. Before the March update rolled out, the Network Operator Setting was at version eir_ie-43000000002.10 and 5G was working well and good at this build number. But with the release of the March update, the Network Operator Setting version got bumped up to eir_ie-43000000002.12 and this subsequently gave rise to the 5G bug. So the latest version of NOS could well be the reason behind this issue.

Update: April Update doesn’t address this issue!
Well, well, well, the April update has just been rolled out but judging by the changelog, Google hasn’t addressed the 5G issues of the Pixel 7 series. So it looks like it’s going to be one of those ever-lasting Pixel-exclusive bugs that would take up eternity to get rectified! Anyways, let’s keep our fingers crossed and hope it gets ironed ot sooner than later, if not with April then with the May update.
